98 Brandon Slay – Olympic Wrestling Champion

Brandon Slay is our first guest of 2018 on the Best in the World with Richard Parr podcast. Brandon won gold in freestyle wrestling at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and was part of the USA coaching team for the 2012 and 2016 games. 

 

If you have set your goals or made a New Year’s Resolution you will definitely want to listen to this. Brandon explains how he achieved his goal of becoming an Olympic champion and why we should be setting process goals. 

 

On the podcast Brandon talks to Richard about being awarded the gold medal having lost the Olympic final. The Wharton Business School graduate explains why it was easier training for the Olympics than it was being a collegiate wrestler. 

 

Also on the podcast Brandon gives advice to parents raising young wrestlers.
