Mac and I were teammates on the University of Oregon track team in the early 70s and shared the legendary coach and inventor of the Nike shoe, Bill Bowerman. A gift to both of us. Mac’s resume is impressive. He was a 4 x Olympic team member as discus thrower. He won the Gold medal in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal and a Silver in the !984 Olympics in Los Angeles. After his lengthy athletic career he became a coach, a mentor and a teacher to many young track and field athletes striving to become the best athletes possible.
In this podcast he shares his wealth of knowledge, from his own pursuit of ever better physical and mental performance and his evolved skills and wisdom to guiding others to become the best versions of themselves.
