ABC Network Radio – Mar 3, 2006 – (On the Show) – At the winter Olympics womens figure skating finals Sasha Cohen was flawless in her skating but when it came down to her crucial moment to win the gold medal she stumbled. Like Sasha Cohen, many athletes perform their best during training or practice and find that they choke during competition.

After years of training, why do elite athletes crack under pressure and is it possible to overcome their thoughts and performance anxiety?

Joining us on the show is sports psychologist Dr. John Murray to give us insight into the mind of an athlete and how psychology in sports is just as powerful as physical stamina and strength.

Dr. John F. Murray is a sports psychologist and clinical psychologist providing sports psychology and counseling services based in Palm Beach, Florida.
