Using Hypnosis in Athletic Performance

“In the 1988 Seoul Summer Games, the power of hypnosis on focus and performance was displayed beautifully when Olympic diver Greg Louganis hit his head on the board while performing a complicated dive during the 3 meter final.

Amazingly, Greg then went out to score a perfect dive the second time, enough to earn him the gold medal!”
