Athlete, Educator, Author
The speech by David Hemery on potential shares what was going through his mind when he won a gold medal at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City for the 400m hurdles (a new world record at the time). The former track and field athlete from Gloucestershire, England went on to work as a coach in the United States and Great Britain following his running career. This gives plenty of credibility when it comes to the content of the speech by David Hemery. He also has experience as an educator.
The speaker authored several books including How to Help Children Find the Champion Within Themselves, Sporting Excellence: What Makes a Champion? and The Pursuit of Sporting Excellence - A Study of Sport's Highest Achievers.
