As a former All-American decathlete, I used to study film on Bryan and follow his every move. He was a legend to me on the track, but once I began to know him as a man I had a completely different level of respect for him.
He had his name and picture on the Wheaties box for participating in the Bejing Olympics
He won silver in 2004 Olympics and finished first at the 2005 World Championships
Gold Winner at 2008 Beijing Olympics (Decathalon),
The Decathlon champion is referred to as the “World’s Greatest Athlete”
The reason why Bryan is such a special individual to me is because I always wanted to be an All-American athlete and going into my senior year of college I was inspired by Bryan’s achievements at the Olympics in 2004. I found every video I could on him so I could break down his technique and study how he became so successful in his craft.
Along with having an amazing coach, he was the guy that I followed to learn how to perform in the decathlon.
We have a special segment of this episode called: Ask the Coach. In it, I ask Bryan’s coach, Kevin Reid, what makes Bryan so coachable and capable of such greatness.
In This Episode, You Will Learn:
What Bryan’s Coach, Kevin Reed Considers the KEYS to his Success
How Bryan got involved in the decathalon
What led to Bryan’s depression and anger in his youth
About the moment when he realized that he was the best in the world
What drives him to keep working to be the best
About the foundation he built to “Build Champions and Change Lives”
About Clay’s religious faith and how he attained it
To understand, “we won’t change until the process of change looks better than where we’re currently at”
Whether he puts a stronger faith in himself or in God
