Abstract

First person autobiographical insights are of interest since they provide narrative of how elite athletes’ view their learning. Thirty autobiographies from serial champions such as Usain Bolt (track and field), Steve Redgrave (rowing) and Chris Hoy (cycling) along with comments from their coaches are combined with existing research evidence in my research published elsewhere in a book titled Podium. In this article eight lessons learned from this research are explored in the form of narrative stories.
