Episode 154: What The Tokyo Olympics Taught Us About Personal Branding

During the Tokyo Olympics, the importance of personal branding was on full display. Think about it: The mainstream media now tells us constant stories about the upbringing, mission and values of athletes they feature on the news. While we watched Katie Ledecky win gold in the inaugural 1500-meter freestyle, we can't help but hear relatable anecdotes about her early life in the Washington, D.C., area or her years of training at Stanford University. When we heard about U.S. swimmer Chase Kalisz, who competed with Michael Phelps, we learned just how much Phelps inspired him as a youngster. We found out about Phelps's childhood friends and past girlfriends. When you boil down the Olympics, it comes down to the stories that differentiate one athlete from another. They're like campfire tales about parenting and perseverance, hard work and overcoming adversity.

Nobody in the history of swimming has been as good at freestyle as our guest today is. Katie Ledecky is the literal GOAT (Greatest Of All Time), as she is the world record holder in the women's 400-, 800-and 1500-meter freestyle. (If you're an American who prefers yards to meters, Katie also has the fastest-ever times in the women's 500-, 1000-, 1500- and 1650-yard freestyle events.) Katie is just back from her third Olympics, where she won two gold medals and two silvers. In addition to dominating in the pool, she also has some great Jesuit connections: Katie's godfather is a Jesuit priest named Fr. Jim Shea, SJ, and Katie has also lent her voice and platform to the urgent work of the Jesuit Refugee Service. She talked with host Mike Jordan Laskey about those Jesuit connections and her Catholic faith, plus some swimming stuff -- like what's going through her head as she swims a grueling 1500-meter race.

In the middle of a global pandemic it's amazing that the Tokyo 2020 organising committee could get a games going at all. That they could bring the athletes of the world to Japan and get them to compete with no socialising, in front of no crowds, at such a high level is nothing short of a miracle. Australia equalled its best gold medal count with 17. Thanks largely to the women's swim team. While aquatic sports in general won 15 of the 17 gold for Australia. Aussies tore up the track and field events with three medals. And the Boomers won their first ever medal after so many heartbreaking moments over the years. Penrith's own Jess Fox won a gold and a bronze in the whitewater canoeing and Penrith born Melissa Wu won a bronze in diving which is almost as good as gold given the two Chinese divers were out of this world. Internationally there were some amazing performances. Karsten Warholm burning up the 400m hurdles track sits atop the mountain. But Eliud Kipchoge going back to back in the marathon, Katie Ledecky winning the distance double, Marcell Jacobs winning the first 100m track title for Italy and the 4-way battle for the men's 1500m freestyle were all great moments. All the hurdles, the Covid tests, the masks, the awarding teammates medals, the friendly TV time zone, and the world class performances made Tokyo 2020 one of the most satisfying Olympics in memory. 0:00:00 - Introduction 0:07:30 - Swimming 0:24:00 - Athletics 0:43:50 - Cycling 0:58:40 - Kayak & Canoe 1:07:00 - Basketball 1:16:00 - Football 1:19:00 - Other Sports 1:26:00 - Favourite Moments Part of the No Phony Podcast Network nophonynetwork.com Twitter - @batsandballspod Brendan - @The Producer05 Josh - @PiesJosh Colbee - @colbee6ref Hammer - @notbatting11 Mendy - @BigMendy180 Maybo - @maybo83 Erik - @ErikNielsen2759 No Phony Network - @NoPhonyNetwork Email - batsandballspodcast@gmail.com facebook.com/batsandballspodcast http://batsandballspodcast.com/

KD is watching the NBC primetime coverage 4:30 - KD wonders why the divers take showers after every dive. JLee tells him that it's to keep their muscles warm since the pool is so cold.

What a beast.  9:30 - JLee is teaching her children about the Olympics and how they should root for everyone to do well and be happy for all the winners. Great sports life lessons! 11:00 - The majority of the US Olympic team are women. This is the third straight Olympics where women outnumber men for Team USA.  12:15 - JLee asks Tim and KD what the weirdest thing they've seen to help with hiring. She saw a Wendy's that was offering a free meal to do an interview for a job. KD says that the lack of change by some companies has been the oddest thing to him. 15:45 - JLee shouts out Chipotle for hopping on TikTok to ramp up hiring.  17:20 - Tim talks about how Chipotle got an influencer to come in and make a video about her past employment there. He thinks this is a really smart recruitment marketing tactic.  19:30 - JLee talks about an influencer Marriott uses that makes content about being a foster mom of teenage girls.  22:30 - Tim praises TikTok Resumes for being innovative unlike many other social platforms but is upset that their job description language is the same traditional, boring descriptions from the past.  27:00 - Tim thinks that smaller brands can have more impact using TikTok for hiring since the bigger brands have more risk involved.  31:30 - JLee asks the crew what they would say if their kids asked if they should do a TIkTok resume. Tim says that if a brand is on TikTok resumes, they should know what they're getting themselves into. ---------------Jessica Lee, Kris Dunn and Tim Sackett Kinetix HRU Tech Jessica Lee on LinkedIn Tim Sackett on Linkedin Kris Dunn on LinkedIn The Tim Sackett Project The HR Capitalist Fistful of Talent Boss Leadership Training Series

The pandemic delayed the games a year, and while there were fears of a total outbreak, it seems like the precautions worked. A few high-profile athletes like John Rahm (golf) and Coco Gauff (tennis) tested positive, but overall, COVID was a non-event. - Americans Caeleb Dressel and Katie Ledecky continued to dominate in the pool. He won five gold medals, and she made history, winning her sixth individual gold. There is no word on Dressel's future, but Ledecky has already promised that she'll be back for 2024 in Paris. - Snoop Dogg and Kevin Hart's commentary on the Olympics was the unsung hero of the Games. They've covered everything from Tonga's shirtless flag bearer to Tom Daley's gold medal-winning synchronized dive. Although our favorite moment has to be their take on the dressage routine by Mopsie, the "rave horse." BAD (TURNED POSITIVE) - Being a good sport is in the DNA of the Olympics, and we have to look no further than the track and field competition. First, Isaiah Jewett (USA)and Mijel Amous (Botswana) collided during the 800-meter race, falling. The two picked each other up and finished the race together. - In the high jump, after tying Mutaz Essa Barshim (Qatar) and Gianmarco Tamberi (Italy), were offered a chance to have a jump off to determine a gold medal winner or share the gold. The two agreed to share the gold. The exclamation mark was Tamberi leaping into Barshim's arms to celebrate their co-victory. - It seemed like a death sentence for US Women's Gymnastics (and NBC's ratings) when Simone Biles dropped out of the team all-around and subsequent events. But not so fast. With Biles out, her teammates Suni Lee (gold – all-around), Jade Carey (gold – floor) and MyKayla Skinner (silver – vault) all medaled in individual events. Every member of the US Gymnastics team went home with a medal, including Biles, who earned a silver (team all-around) and bronze (beam). UGLY - The biggest gut-punch was to the city of Tokyo. It's estimated that the city spent around $35 billion to put on the Olympics - a far cry from the initial $7.3 billion budget. With the games being delayed a year and no Olympic tourists, it'll be tough for them to recoup their costs. According to a University of Oxford study, each Olympic Games since 1960 has overrun its budget by 172 percent on average. This Olympics is over by 400 percent. - It may all work itself out by the end, but the overall TV ratings have been down for the Olympics. Some cite the time difference, confusion on where to catch the coverage and prominent name athletes exiting competition early. The ratings, which are down 42% from Rio 2016, may cause NBC to make right with some advertisers. They sold more than $1.25 billion in commercials and are paying $1.1 billion for broadcast rights. (Keep in mind that doesn't include production costs, salaries, etc).

Jeff Heggie Daily Success Strategies 336: Pay Attention to the Small Things https://jeffheggie.com/2021/07/29/pay-attention-to-the-small-things/ https://jeffheggie.com/ConfidentAthlete https://mindset.jeffheggie.com/ I have been watching Katie Ledecky all week as everything built up to her premier event, which is finally an Olympic event for the women, the 1500-meter freestyle. This is a long race of endurance and stamina. Ledecky was by far the favorite to win the gold in this event. Ledecky broke the World Record in this event in June 2014. Since then, she has broken her own World Record four more times! On Tuesday, as expected, she took a commanding lead and maintained it throughout the entire 1500m. She swam strong and nobody was surprised that she won the Gold Medal in this event. Ledecky was ecstatic that her teammate, Erica Sullivan, won silver. What I find interesting is that her dominant performance was only a little over 4-seconds faster than second place. Ledecky finished in 15:37.34, while Sullivanfinished in 15:41.41. As she powered through the water for over 15 minutes, one small mistake could have changed everything. What is it that we can learn from this? Earlier in the week I listened to an interview with Ledecky where she said, “you can look at all the stats, but when I have confidence that's all that matters.” When she was asked what was different since the last Olympics she said, “I'm five years older and have five years more experience.” Michael Phelps said, “she wears the crown and target. She has to do what she knows what to do.” If you want to be the best at anything that you do, pay attention to the small things! Ledecky has trained hard for years and years. To get to the level she is at she has had to focus on every area of her life from the physical training, mental training, nutrition, and so much more. But when the difference between the best in the world and second place is only four seconds over a 1500m swim, the small things make a difference. You may not be an Olympic athlete, but it's no different for you. The small, seemingly insignificant success habits that you do day in, day out can be what really separates you from your competition. These are the things that are easy to do, but they are also easy not to do. Write out your goals every day. Easy to do, easy not to do. Go through your Mindset Questions every day. Easy to do, easy not to do. Look in the mirror. Are you doing the things every day that are getting you closer to your bigger goals? Or did you write out your goals every morning for a week but quit because nothing had happened yet?

He should have been on the 4x200 free relay, even Michael Phelps agrees with us. Although USA put up some very solid splits, we're confident they would have got on the podium with Dressel leading off. Would they have gotten past Britain? No way. But they get a medal with Caeleb on it. HOT TOPIC OF THE DAY: Men's 100 Free Final - What the heck is going to Happen? The men's 100 free depth is overwhelming, with 47.9 missing the final altogether. Caeleb Dressel is just 2nd seed with a 47.2, behind Kliment Kolesnikov's 47.11 European record. Mel says there's too much speed in this field and Kyle Chalmers won't even medal... I think he's a fool and that the defending Olympic champ will absolutely put himself into the top 3. All will be revealed in this next finals session in what could very well be the race of the century.

After a shaky prelims, we saw Russia put together an even shakier finals performance, back-ended by a 48.1 from relay-stalwart Vlad Morozov and a 48.4 anchor from Kliment Kolesnikov, coming off of a 52.2 swim in the 100 back semi less than an hour before. This led the team to finish 7th overall, nearly 2 seconds outside of the medals. Hot Topic of the Day: Titmus vs. Ledecky Titmus took round 1 of this Clash of the Titans, but what does this say about both swimmers moving into the rest of the meet? We know Ledecky is firing, and it seemed like she played into Titmus' hand in the 400 free strategically. In the 200, Ledecky could make it interesting but it seems like Titmus has too much speed to catch. Meaning it all comes down to the 800 free. We say Ledecky swims her own race at the end of the meet, learning from her 400 and staying away from Titmus early on so she has no wave to ride, successfully defending her last 2 Olympic titles i in the event.

At every Olympic Games, there are thousands of stories. This year, Simone Manuel looks to solidify her legacy as the greatest gymnast of all time. Katie Ledecky could become the most decorated female athlete in Olympic history. And Trayvon Bromell aims to claim the title of 'world's fastest man.' But there are also so many more. The Athletic's Zack Pierce joins us to talk through some of the biggest and most fascinating storylines to follow from Team USA during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, including a softball duo's 13-year quest for redemption, a teen prodigy who could inherit the crown in swimming, and a rock legend's horse-riding daughter.Read Zack Pierce's full rundown of U.S. athletes to follow:https://theathletic.com/2706266/2021/07/19/meet-team-usa-every-athlete-at-the-2021-olympics-and-what-to-know-about-each-event/See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Each athlete at the Olympic games comes with a story of perseverance, determination and, in many cases, heartbreak. While we would love to highlight each of the more than 620 athletes competing on Team U.S.A., here are a few that we would like to celebrate. 1. Quanesha Burks is from a town of 14,000 people but had her sights set on college. When Burks wasn't training during high school, she worked at McDonald's to help her grandmother pay off her car insurance. Because of her hard work ethic and athletic ability, Burks received a scholarship to college, and while it was a bit of a broken road to get here, she is now a full-time professional long jumper. What did she eat to celebrate making the U.S. Olympic team? A McDonald's medium fries with no salt and a side of sweet and sour sauce. 2. The Bruce Tramps can unite over something more than his summer concert series. Jessica, the daughter of the boss himself, Bruce Springsteen, will compete on the U.S. Olympic Equestrian team as part of the jumping squad. Springsteen began riding at the age of four and is now ranked third on the U.S. rider list. Tokyo will be her first Olympic appearance. (For the record, Springsteen fans are called Bruce Tramps as in "tramps like us.") 3. There are so many stellar women to watch, from Sue Bird (basketball) to Simone Biles (gymnastics) to Katie Ledecky (swimming).  We couldn't be more excited to see these women and those of the U.S.W.N.T. (soccer) dominate in their sport while cheering each other along. Did you know that women have won more than 50% of Team U.S.A.'s medals at the last two Summer Olympics? Biles said, "I've been here for so long, so to be a mentor for them has meant everything to me, and to share these accomplishments and these goals." 4. Filling the giant flippers of Michael Phelps is Caeleb Dressel. Dressel became a household name in Rio, where he won two medals in the swimming relays. As the experienced veteran on the men's team, the swim team co-captain has a chance to become the fourth swimmer in history to win seven medals in a single Olympic Games. Dressel stayed sane during his time off in 2020 by hiking the Appalachian Trail with his wife. As he revealed on his podcast "The Ben and Caeleb Show," the trail taught him more about life than the Olympics. 5. Allyson Felix, the most decorated athlete in the world, teamed up with Athleta to help moms fund childcare when they're competing. Except for nursing infants, athlete's children cannot attend the games. Felix and Athleta gave out six- $10,000 grants to female Olympians to help with childcare while they're in Tokyo. It wasn't until late June that Tokyo Organizers decided to let athlete moms who are nursing bring their child to Tokyo after athletes from all over the world said not being able to do so was forcing them to choose between being a mother and an athlete.
