Description : This book celebrates two important aspects of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. (1) For those involved in any aspect of Olympism, and particularly coaches and athletes, London 2012 was about realising dreams, achieving success and participating in competitive sport at the highest level. This book sets out some of these dreams and the part coaches play in this. (2) The book also looks at the notion of ‘coaching-for-performance’ and does this from an international and multi-sport perspective. From interviews with Olympic coaches, the experiences of those working in the field of high performance and from applied sport researchers, the book uses the metaphor of the ‘coach-as-alchemist’ in order to capture the dynamics of coach-athlete relationships and performance. Sports such as diving, swimming, gymnastics, skiing are included as well as individual and team sports. The book is set within the context of elite sport, high performance and coaching. Its contents illuminate two important kinds of reflective practice: (a) Reflection-ON-action (b) Reflection-FOR-action. The style of presentation includes narratives, reflective conversations, ethnographic work, interview analysis and video-clips available on-line. This book was published as a special issue of Reflective Practice.

Description : "You already are the person I want you to be. I see so much more in you that you won’t allow yourself to see." Lainey is on her way to her first and probably only Olympics. At twenty-two, she has finally made the U.S. Figure Skating Team after years of hard work and sacrifice. All she can think about is winning gold when she meets Cory, a gorgeous, hotshot Alpine skier and two-time Olympic champion who seems to be taking his talent for granted. His bad behavior is getting him in trouble with everyone around him, including Lainey. No love is lost between Lainey and Cory until the night Cory comes to Lainey's rescue. She soon realizes that his reckless behavior may be related to something painful from his past and that she actually needs to rescue him before he self-destructs. Can Lainey help Cory battle his demons so he can rebuild his future as an elite skier and, in turn, can Cory help Lainey execute a gold medal-winning performance? And will their support to each other lead them down a path to long-lasting love?

Ultimately, modern conceptions of time, reality, human feeling and economics also find themselves under attack.
