The Spotlight

“Backstage not onstage.” Support and prepare the athlete then step aside and let them perform. The spotlight should be focused on the athlete in the performance arena.

Support staff and that includes sport scientists, strength coaches, and medical staff should be anonymous. If they are up front and the center of attention then something is seriously wrong. We all need to do our job behind the scenes and be thankful that we can work with athletes to help make them better.
