Jessica Zelinka, Two-time Olympian, Track and Field - on her coaching role

Two-time Olympian, Canadian heptathlete, and 100m hurdler, Jessica Zelinka, was a shining light of clean sport at the 2012 London Olympics.

In this episode of Bob Palmer's ZoneTalk, Jessica discusses her Olympic experience, the balancing of her roles as both a high-performance athlete and mother, how competing against talented opponents is the only way to reach one’s potential, and the absolute necessity of the Zone mindset for training, performing and coaching, especially in today’s environment of the Covid-19 crisis.
