The video introduces mental training to ordinary sportsmen and women. It is

Reviewed by Greg Sargent, Sports Psychologist, Australian Institute Of Sport
in Sports Coach Magazine, Autumn 1995
The video is extremely well presented and produced with consideration given
to covering the main issues in a very clear and applied format. The different
sections covered include the important mental skills such as goal setting,
motivation, concentration, confidence, anxiety control and mental rehearsal.
Some other peripheral, though just as valuable topics are also examined. These
include information on competition day, pain and fatigue, negative thought
conversion, dealing with coaches and team unity.
In each section, one of the athletes presents a short commentary before
presenter Dr Robert Hampshire discusses the topic in more depth while also
providing some valuable applied tips. A number of aspects make the video
slightly different to the type of material often presented in this format:
The video does give an excellent insight into the different skills and would be
a worthwhile addition to the video library of the serious sports person (coach
and athlete) interested in investigating the mental side of sports performance.
- Firstly, most interviews are conducted in the sporting environment (adding
a degree of validity to the presentation) and Hampshire adds further
strength in being an active sports person himself.
- Secondly, an actual interview with the presenter on the Sydney Cricket
Ground during the break in play in an international cricket match seems to
enhance the credibility about the important message of the video.
