Rio Transition Programme


The Olympic / Paralympic Games are a pinnacle experience for athletes, coaches, support staff and their families. Each Games is unique in its own way and are an intense, emotional, physical and psychological challenge. Producing your best performance at the Games tests your resilience like no other competition. Successful athletes tell us that the ability to respond and adapt to the Olympic environment is one of the fundamental skills that underpins delivering a performance, enjoying the experience and adjusting to the post-games experience.
