Staying in Sync Under Stress - Michael Hixon and Sam Dorman (Olympic Divers)
Play • 43 min

When 4 years of work can be undone in one moment, whats tougher than having to deal with your own stress? Having two people's stress combined. This week we dive in the mind of 2 Olympic silver medalists, Michael Hixon (2x silver in 2016 and 2020) and Sam Dorman (1x silver in 2016). The duo of divers represented Team USA in Rio in the men's synchronized 3-meter springboard event. By talking about how they deal with the pressure of having only 6 dives to focus on in an interval of 4 years of preparation, we dig into the counterintuitive truth that you can have 2 people who approach their mental game in a very different manner. You don't want to miss this one!
