The Kiwi Pair book, an awesome quote about being an exceptional rower.

“Rowing is a sport that leaves no room for half measures, and has no place for any athlete who is not prepared to give everything they can. That commitment comes with sacrifice, but the trick is not to think of it as that. A champion rower does not acknowledge sacrifice; he or she only ever sees opportunity.” 

Mental training is part of Elite Coaching.  Becoming the best in the world is the sum of a myriad of coaching details, strokes taken, and an ever evolving understanding of ones body and mind.
