WALSH’S MIND GAMES

Athletics Weekly - - Dip Finish -

TOM WALSH has en­listed the help of a sports psy­chol­o­gist in a bid to break Randy Barnes’ long-stand­ing world shot put record of 23.12m.

“I do a lot of med­i­ta­tion and mindfulness stuff, which is prob­a­bly the most im­por­tant part of my game now,” he says. “I want to break the world record – I’ve got pretty close to it and in years to come, I think I can do it.”

New Zealan­der Walsh is the reign­ing world out­door and in­door and Com­mon­wealth cham­pion and has a best of 22.67m.
