Dream Big, Have Faith, Do Your Best, and Let it be; the Sky is Your Limit Imprints of Sport Psychology at Rio 2016 Olympic Games
Abstract: Sport practice is not only a perfect means of promoting physical health but also it can improve mental health and the overall quality of life of any individual. Applied Sport Psychology is the branch of science that is used to train athletes on different psychological skills and how to use them efficiently whether during competitions or in their regular lives. Olympic Games represents an occasion to demonstrate the pivotal role of such science in the remarkable achievements of many athletes who always prove without any doubts that nothing is impossible for strong will, fighting spirit, and unshaken faith. To conclude, the precious lesson which can be learnt from the inspiring stories of many athletes throughout their careers is simply that in order to achieve our goals in life, not only in sports, we have to dream big, have faith, believe in ourselves, do our best, and be sure that we can.
