Coaching Ruben Gonzalez in Salt Lake City

Here we are at the Park City bobsled track.

From the left Ruben Gonzalez, me, and Jon Owen — a development coach for the US Luge team.

Jon made a minor adjustment to Ruben’s sled. Ruben said it was handling way better. Jon Owen and I spent a couple hours watching practice….

Ruben slid well, no crashes and his technique, timing, and control are improving. I coached Ruben through some guided imagery to create a confident state of mind for practice. After a minor injury yesterday he slide great — the track was empty — but evidence is when we win races.
