Team USA women celebrated Victory last night in the final of the freestyle skiing moguls event of the Games. In the true spirit of “Power Zone,” Hannah Kearney roared to Olympic Gold in the moguls. Watching her, you saw an athlete in that “Power Zone.” This is the point in sport when everything just flows. The athlete experiences the right mental state to perfectly execute all her technique and skills in competition. Hannah was a joy to watch. Not far behind was Shannon Bahrke capturing a bronze in the same event. Her thrill at winning was expressed in her enthusiasm at the finish. She further expressed her kindness to all the other competitors behind her, including the ones who didn’t win. Her generosity shined through.
Further, Hannah Kearney has her own unique relaxation technique. Everywhere she goes , she brings her knitting. She says knitting gives her a soothing and calming feel. Her own meditation technique. Creative sports psychology in action.
