Project

What can we learn from sporting legends?

The life of a professional athlete is a mix of dedication, disappointment, celebration and sacrifice. But what can us mere mortals learn from their lives?

Project Details

With the IAAF World Para Athletics and Athletics Championships in London, for the summer, the world’s best athletes of all shapes and sizes will descend on the Capital City and perform in front of thousands.

At the same time, we’ll turn our focus to the professional athletes and their training teams. We’ll look into how they’ve turned the love for their sport into a career; training, eating, traveling and living in different ways to the rest of us.

Studio B’s ‘Personal Best’ project looks at how the world’s best coaches, athletes and teams work together, and explores ways that their methods can be adapted to all of our everyday lives.
