This week, Kennedy sits down with a licensed psychologist, specializing in clinical sports psychology, Dr. Chelsi Day to discuss the pressures and mental effects associated with training for and participating in the Summer Olympic Games.

Dr. Day shares her understanding of the psychological issues faced by athletes participating in different types of intensive training and competitions. Dr. Day also shares how her experiences as a collegiate swimmer and work in private practice with Olympic-level athletes have broadened her perspective on sports.
