First, Louganis practices yoga, which is worth a post in-and-of itself. (As Greg trains divers above, doesn't that look like Boat pose to you?)
But what's even better, is how he trains the young divers:
Louganis emphasizes practice over competition and the whole person over the athlete. He encourages his divers to keep daily journals in which they write their intentions for each practice, then critique their performances.Imagine if every coach or teacher taught kids this way. I bet we'd have better athletes, students, and human beings.
