In celebration of National Science Week 2012
you are invited to the free public event:

The Mental Games
Inside the mind of an Olympic athlete

An essential component to an Olympian’s success is mental preparation for their sport and the competition surrounding it.

Join Curtin University experts and explore the important role of psychology in Olympic success. Speakers will cover mental toughness, motivation techniques, aiming for perfection and coping with rapid fame and celebrity following victory.
