This week we learn from 2005 Judo World Champion Guillaume Elmont on the ‘Best in the World with Richard Parr’ podcast.

Guillaume is also a trained psychologist and a performance coach at the Dutch football team Ajax Amsterdam.

In his chat with Richard, Guillaume talks about whether he and his brother had any pressure to take up Judo from their father, who competed in the sport at the 1976 Olympics for Suriname.

He explains what went wrong for him at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.

The Dutchman also discusses nutrition, visualisation and recovery techniques.

It’s another fun and fascinating show and Guillaume explains why he has now taken up Salsa.
