Sports Psychology Support - Processing Emotions In Times Of Uncertainty

Sports Psychology Support - Processing Emotions In Times Of Uncertainty

Times of uncertainty can play havoc with your emotions, not knowing whether your next swimming session is next month, later in the year, or even next year. Swim England sport psychologists Hannah Stoyel and Helen Davis have put together a video for Swim England club members, coaches and parents to help understand how to identify and process these emotions. Hannah and Helen impress that we are in an unprecedented situation at the moment, with pools indefinitely closed due to the coronavirus outbreak. There is a huge range of emotions that we might feel about this – sometimes many over a short period of time. It’s important to remember that all these emotions are valid reactions, when we’re feeling out of control. Hannah and Helen refer to Geoffrey Roberts’s Feeling Wheel (see video) and how this can help us identify how and why we are feeling a certain way. While not many things feel normal in times of uncertainty, we develop a new normal.

Keynote Speaker: Janet Evans

Keynote Speaker: Janet Evans

Despite her small size and unorthodox windmill stroke, Janet Evans was a natural-born swimmer who was swimming laps at the age of two. In 1987, when she was 15 years old, Janet broke the world record in both the 400, 800m and the 1,500m freestyle. At the 1988 Seoul Olympics, she won her first gold medal in the 400m individual medley. Three days later, she won the 400m freestyle by more than two seconds and broke her own world record by 1.6 seconds. Janet added a third Olympic victory in the 800m freestyle. At the 1992 Barcelona Olympics she easily defended her title in the 800m by leading from start to finish, winning by eight meters; she also won the silver in the 400m. Evans made one final appearance at the Olympics in 1996, but sites running the Olympic torch as the highlight of that Olympics over the actual competition. Since the end of her swimming career, Janet has made a name for herself as a commercial spokesperson, author, a reality television personality, and a highly sought after speaker.

Lizzie Simmonds: “Who am I and what is my purpose?”

Lizzie Simmonds: “Who am I and what is my purpose?”

Lizzie Simmonds is one of Britain’s most successful swimmers. She is a double European Champion, a 13-time British Champion, a double Olympian and a Commonwealth silver medallist – that’s just a short list of her achievements. The 28-year-old retired from the sport back in July 2018 but things have been far from simple since then. When you’ve lived for most of your life as an elite athlete – chasing targets and aiming to go as fast as you can – there is a massive void to fill when you take it away. That’s proved to be particularly challenging for Lizzie as she struggled to come to terms with her loss of identity. Not only that, but the current vice chair of the BOA Athletes' Commission also admits to struggling with her emotions at competitions - too often she would believe her self-worth as a person was wrapped up with her success in the pool. In this feature interview Lizzie speaks to Alasdair Hooper all about her life after sport – the identity crisis, the battle with self-worth, and also the challenges of seeing your body change once you retire. But, through the hardship, the 28-year-old has learnt a lot and she is ready to pass on her knowledge to the next generation.
