In our latest podcast interview we spoke to Olympic gold medallist turned mental health coach Marie-Laure Brunet about what mental health in sport means to her.

Marie-Laure is a French former biathlete who works with athletes to optimise and activate their potential, while helping them to overcome the obstacles they may face.

She has some great advice about what to do if you suspect that one of your teammates – or even one of your opponents – is suffering mental health difficulties.

Having suffered a collapse as a result of burnout at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, she speaks from experience, so her observations on the signs that might indicate mental health problems are worth listening to. She also explains how she would approach her career differently if she were to start again, and ends with some valuable tips to other athletes on maintaining their mental health.
