This week on the WarriorU Podcast Bram talks to Dr Sacha Fulton PhD. Sacha is one of the humblest people you will ever meet, and also one of the most accomplished.
In this podcast she teaches us the importance of having a wider skills focus, being a generalist rather than a specialist. Sacha’s undergraduate degree was in human movement studies and her PhD focused on Movement Characteristics of Paralympic swimmers, an area where a wide focus is surely an advantage. Her academic achievements and support to the highly successful Australian Paralympic swimming team is only the tip of the iceberg.
Sacha has also completed a marathon, a handful of sprint distance and half distance triathlons and eight ironman triathlons, one of which was the iconic Kona, Hawaiian Ironman. If that isn’t enough to prove her legitimacy as an athlete – she has also completed two solo Rottnest island swims (bear in mind these are twenty-kilometre crossings) and she has also walked the Camino De Santiago, which is the Pilgrims Trail stretching 1700kms through France to Spain. The Camino was the birthplace of her business Peak Preparation – Sacha now uses her depth of academic study, personal experiences and vast network to assist coaches, business and athletes to prepare for whatever their missions might be.
