Andy Baddeley talks Mental Preparation at the Giant Store St. Paul's

Mental preparation for injuries, training and racing

Two-time Olympian (and park run record holder…!), Andy Baddeley talks about his approaches to mental preparation in relation to injuries, training and racing at the recent Giant Store St. Paul’s Triathlon evening special event in Central London.


Andy Baddeley is a double Olympian and former world number one over the mile.

He is an Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth finalist at 1500m. A Cambridge University graduate, he has also battled a serious heart condition, and has spoken openly about the depression he suffered as a result of a potentially career-ending injury. With the help of key members of the Performance Team, he returned to competition at elite level, and is ideally placed to help aspiring athletes to achieve their goals.
