STORIES OF STRENGTH
THIS MONTH, TRIPLE JUMPER TAY-LEIHA CLARK TELLS US WHAT STRENGTH MEANS TO HER
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON IN TRAINING?
Speed and strength are pretty important for a jumper, so I target core and glute strength in training. We only have 30-40 metres to hit our top speed before we take off for the jump!
WHAT’S YOUR SECRET TO BUILDING MENTAL STRENGTH?
Visualisation is key. It’s hard to replicate the atmosphere of a competition, so sometimes you just have to be ready for whatever the conditions are on the day. Positive self-talk also makes a difference.
WHAT EFFECT DOES TRAINING HAVE ON YOUR HAIR?
Training and competing outdoors all the time leaves my hair constantly exposed to UV rays and sweat. I need to protect and repair my hair from the damage UV causes, so Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner is my go-to for every wash.
