British Female Cyclist Success – How to become the Best in the World. Lesson for Rio2016?!

A very good article on the Daily Mail today. Reporter Ian Stafford tells us about the moment, in late 2010 , when 14 female cyclist started to become the unbeatable team they are today.

After getting silver in the World Championship in Copenhagen, they were called into a small room by Sir David Brailsford , British Cyclist Performance Director, and mercilessly told that was not good enough. Things had to change.

It reads.

‘I told the girls to remember the feeling of losing the world championships final,’ he said. ‘I asked them if they wanted to feel like it again. I then asked them how they would feel if it happened in London.

They are, arguably, the most successful sports team in the world, having won four successive world titles, gold in 2012 and breaking the world record in both the 3,000m and the 4,000m. They can also boast their first ever world junior championships crown after success in Glasgow last summer

Um artigo muito bom no  Daily Mail de hoje. Repórter Ian Stafford relata o momento, no final de 2010, quando 14 ciclistas   começaram a se tornar o time imbatível de hoje.

Depois ganhar a medalha  de prata no Campeonato Mundial, em Copenhague, elas foram chamadas para uma pequena sala por Sir David Brailsford, Diretor Britanico de Ciclismo para Performance,  e impiedosamente disse que não era bom o suficiente. As coisas tinham de mudar.

O artigo:
“Eu disse às meninas que se lembrassem da sensação de perder o campeonato mundial na final, disse ele. “Perguntei-lhes se elas queriam se sentir assim novamente. Eu, então, perguntei-lhes como se sentiriam se isso acontecesse  em Londres.”

Elas são, sem dúvida, a equipe de esportes de maior sucesso no mundo, tendo conquistado quatro títulos mundiais consecutivos, ouro em 2012 e quebrar o recorde mundial em ambas as 3.000 m e 4.000 m a. Eles também podem se vangloriar seu primeiro campeonato júnior mundo sempre coroa após o sucesso em Glasgow no último verão
