Caroline Burckle on Helping Young Athletes Rise Through Creating a Foundation of Mental Health and Mentorship - Ep 079

At The End of The Tunnel

Today's guest is Caroline Burckle, a professional athlete who swam in the Beijing Olympics in 2008. After being mentally and physically wrecked by the end of her experience with competitive sport, she co-founded RISE Athletes, a virtual mentoring program where professional and olympic athletes empower youth athletes with transferable skills to impact sport and life performance, helping to better prepare them for the mental and physical challenges of navigating athletic competition at the highest level.Caroline spent a decade in pursuit of her Olympic goal and spent a decade thereafter understanding her pain, and it is this work that helped her blend art, mindset, and sport to discover herself, her shadows, her light, her movement, and her purpose.In this episode, Caroline reflects on her role as a ‘feeler' and the belief systems she created at a young age that equated self-worth with achievement. She also speaks candidly about her mental health journey and shares how the work she does today was informed by her own mental health struggles as an athlete, as well as her current mission to help others understand how we can utilize our emotions as information rather than suppressing them. We also touch on the mind-body connection, healing trauma through Somatic Experiencing, and Caroline's past and present perceptions of success, plus so much more!This conversation provides a fascinating peek behind the curtain of what it's actually like to be an Olympic athlete. It also offers further evidence that your purpose is likely hiding in whatever you perceive to be your biggest obstacle in life. Make sure to join us as we dive into the backstory of Caroline Burckle and see exactly how a swimming pool in Kentucky became the gateway to finding her purpose!

Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai disappeared from the public eye after accusing the former vice-premier of China of sexually assaulting her. The accusation was wiped from her Weibo account within an hour.Nothing much happened until tennis stars like Naomi Osaka and Billie Jean King, along with international media and the Women's Tennis Association, began asking where Peng went a few weeks later. Then a message allegedly from Peng appeared, followed by a video purportedly showing her safely out at dinner. This didn't convince everyone of her safety or that her allegations were being taken seriously by Chinese authorities.But, as Globe sports columnist Cathal Kelly argues, it was enough to kill the news story and to quiet calls for boycotting the upcoming Beijing Olympics.

She makes it look easy, flying around the oval at world class times, but for Speed skater Ivanie Blondin, the years since her medal-less return from the PyeongChang winter games have been marked by deep depression and poor mental health. Strangely enough, the versatile long-track athlete takes comfort in that history. Her attitude is: if she can still post winning times, even when she's not feeling anywhere near top form, then she has to admit, the process is working. Fresh off becoming the new national champion in the 1500m –while still feeling sub par- the skater sat down to chat with Player's Own Voice host Anastasia Bucsis, surrounded by a small menagerie of rescue animals. Blondin lays out her plans for the road to Beijing, and goes deep into the unusual living arrangements she and her husband, Hungarian speed skater Konrad Nagy, find themselves in, as the two athletes train and practise an ocean apart in Canada and Europe. Blondin has tasted competition peaks and valleys and she is making no secret of her drive to perform better than ever at the Beijing Olympics.

There's a buzz on about the Canadian Speed skating team, heading toward the Beijing Olympics. The recent national trials revealed surprising strengths and plunging race times from veterans and newer hopefuls alike. Before the cheering echos from the trials had a chance to dwindle away at Calgary's Olympic Oval, Player's Own Voice podcast host Anastasia Bucsis convened a 'state of the skate' meeting with three champions of the sport. It's a raucous sit down chat about Speed Skating then and now. Chef du mission for the Canadian team, Catriona Le May Doane, Assistant team Coach Shannon Rempel, and multi medallist and commentator Kristina Groves all piled around the table to talk through the challenging pursuit of crazy speed on dime-thin skate blades. None of these women care much for clichés, but they all agree- this is living proof that if you build it, they will come. Canada's most successful winter Olympic sport got to be that way, because decisions were made, back in 1988, to keep the Olympic skating Oval and institution, and coaching, training and expertise firmly in place. There are Olympic medal hopefuls right now, who got to be that way because they could see and skate alongside the best of the best, when they were first trying it out.

At just 16 years of age, she qualified for the 2000 Sydney Games, when a heartbreaking stress fracture eventually meant she couldn't compete.What happened next is extraordinary. Eloise missed the Athens and Beijing Olympics, before qualifying for London and Rio in the gruelling 10,000 metre and 5,000 metre events. This year, she didn't make the time for Tokyo and decided to give the marathon a go.This is a story of having faith, celebrating effort, taking risks, and not giving up.More information:Eloise Wellings | WebsiteLove Mercy FoundationVisit: www.sportsparenthood.com.au

Playing the game: The elite mindset and business thinking with Olympic Gold Medallist Matthew Mitcham, Olympian & Hockeyroo Emily Chalker and Commonwealth Games Swimmer Adrian Radley. As the saying goes it's not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game. Although to be honest most of us would prefer winning than perhaps losing. But even when you do end up with an unfavourable result there's always something to learn and that's what they call the silver lining. So what can business leaders learn from elite athletes and the training they hone over years in preparation for competition? We find out when host Whitney Fitzsimmons speaks to special guests and champion athletes Matthew Mitcham, Emily Chalker and Adrian Radley. Matthew Mitcham tells Whitney that while achieving a momentous perfect dive and a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics was beyond anything he'd ever imagined, for him he's proudest of being the first openly gay athlete to compete at an Olympic Games. Watch Matthew's historic dive. Whitney also chats to former sports journalist and mindset coach Stuart Doughty who says success is about focus and intent. Stuart believes business leaders can learn a lot from watching and researching how elite athletes train and behave. Read more about Stuart's take on the Olympic mindset and how it applies to leadership. And Whitney also catches up with Hockeyroo Emily Chalker who recently returned from competition at the Tokyo Games and Adrian Radley retired Commonwealth Games backstroke swimmer. Both now at KPMG they discuss how elite athletes can successfully make the transition from full time sport and training to the world of business.

Every four years, we watch these young women flipping and flying high in the air in their sparkly leotards, and we seem to forget about the expectations they have riding on their shoulders, and how incredibly dangerous what they do is.

Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill is an Olympic gold medallist and three-time world champion heptathlete, and is one of the most successful women in British sporting history. She was the face of Team GB during the 2012 London Olympics, and her image adorned billboards and hoardings across the country in the run up to the Games. Born in Sheffield, Jessica discovered sport as a youngster after attending a local athletics camp during the school holidays. By the time she was 13 she was working with a coach and had joined the City of Sheffield Athletics Club. In 2006 she won bronze at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games but in 2008 she suffered an injury to her right foot which dashed her hopes of competing in the Beijing Olympics. She spent the next year working her way back to fitness and by the 2012 London Olympics she was at the peak of her powers. When she crossed the finish line on 4 August – known as Super Saturday when Team GB won three athletics gold medals in less than an hour – she took the gold medal with a British and Commonwealth record score which remained unbeaten for seven years. Just 15 months after the birth of her first child, Jessica won the heptathlon world title in Beijing – her third World Championship gold medal in a row. She won silver at the Rio Olympics in 2016. In October of that year, at the age of 30, she retired from competitive athletics. Presenter: Lauren Laverne Producer: Paula McGinley
