'Time will pass' | Pam Relph MBE

During five fantastic seasons with the GB Rowing Team, Pamela Relph has won four World Championships and Paralympic gold at London 2012. She is the only member of the LTA mixed coxed four from that famous day at Eton Dorney to still be competing at international level, and is now confirmed to make her second Paralympic Games appearance at Rio 2016. Pamela’s gold at the London 2012 Paralympic Games came just two years after she took up rowing. She was introduced to the sport in August 2010 by her older sister Monica, a member of the GB Rowing Team, after arthritis cut short her ambition of a military career as an engineering officer with the Royal Engineers. Pamela proved to be a natural and made her international debut in 2011, winning World Cup gold with the LTA mixed coxed four in Munich. She was also selected for the World Championships in Bled and enjoyed another fine victory.

The Chimp Paradox

The Chimp Paradox

Dr Raj Persaud talks to Professor Steve Peters. The Chimp Model is a Model for understanding and managing the functioning of the mind. The Model is not a hypothesis nor strict scientific fact but based on the neuroscience of the brain. The model is fun but meant to be taken seriously when it comes to applying it. The model sees the brain as being divided into three teams. The first team is you, the Human (headed up by the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex). You are a conscious thinking analysing being that works with facts and truth and then makes deductions using logical thinking. The second team is the Chimp, an independent thinking brain that is not under your control. It works with feelings and impressions and then puts the ‘information’ together using emotional thinking. The third team is the Computer. This is really a brain that is at the disposal of the Human and Chimp to put information into for reference. It acts as a memory and can also act as an automatic thinking and acting machine that is programmed to take over if the Chimp or Human is asleep or if they allow it to run ahead of them with preformed decisions and beliefs that it can act with. As the resident psychiatrist at GB cycling, Steve was described as a genius by Dave Brailsford. Working in several sports, he has an unparalleled reputation for giving people an edge – as well as the confidence to overcome defeat. As in his book The Chimp Paradox, Steve shows how to deal with fear and ‘become the person you want to be’. He explains how to visualise and break each challenge into small stages, focusing on the process rather than the outcome.
The Dunlop Mindset 2016

The Dunlop Mindset 2016

A series of tests devised by Professor Vincent Walsh from University College London’s Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, showed that elite athletes are largely unphased when put under stressful situations, and performed significantly better when compared with non-athletes. The study commissioned by Dunlop Tyres revealed that athletes’ superior memory allowed them to stay in control even during tests which artificially invoked mental stress within the brain. Six professional extreme athletes and six members of the public took part in the study, performing a series of tasks under a variety of external mental pressures.
