Chariots and Horses

Life Lessons from an Olympic Rower

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Jason Dorland is no stranger to competition. As a rower and coach, he’s seen his share of races won and lost. But after a devastating performance at the 1988 Olympics, Jason was overwhelmed by a sense of failure—and with small wonder. Winning at all costs, whereby the playing field is seen as a battlefield, is pretty much the industry standard when it comes to motivating elite athletes. That philosophy coloured his own coaching style, until he met someone who coped with the loss of her own Olympic dream, and viewed competition itself, in a different way.

An honest, intimate look at the reality of high-level athletics, Chariots and Horses is more than a sports story. In charting his progress from struggling athlete to an inspirational coach driven to instill a healthy competitive spirit in his rowers, Jason Dorland shows how in sports and in life, it’s all about the journey.

Customer Reviews

Better than I expected

I heard an interview with the author and thought it would be an interesting read. I don't subscribe to the authors original "win at all cost" coaching style, but I coach recreational kids' sports and thought it would be interesting to understand that mindset and how it was changed. His story is so well told that I've been recounting it to my wife and kids. His personal growth is inspiring and the attitude he embraced about competitive sports would serve all parents and athletes.
