What does it take to be an extraordinary champion?
The 2016 Rio Paralympic Games have started and as the athletes begin to compete at the highest level, there will be many examples of the winning mindset on the world stage.
Ahead of the games, Sporting Edge has gone Inside the Mind of Champions® and interviewed one of Team GB's most successful Paralympic athletes of all time, Dame Sarah Storey DBE, to find out what it takes to be an extraordinary champion and heroine of the sporting world.
Sarah is one of the most versatile athletes, having competed at four Paralympic Games in both Swimming and Track and Road Cycling, earning a total of 11 gold medals. In her exclusive interview with Sporting Edge she shares her insights on hard work, mental toughness and resilience to win.
She explains the importance of not being distracted by things that are outside of your control. Whether it is rules and regulations, or the performance and behaviour of others, focusing on the things you can affect will ensure you perform at your best.
