James Magnussen helped by mind guru at NRL’s Bulldogs


Read The Telegraph

As the 100m freestyle world champion prepares to return to the pool following admissions of Stilnox use and childish behaviour, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal that Magnussen turned to the Bulldogs to help rekindle his career.

Magnussen contacted the Bulldogs two months after his failed Olympic campaign, with Hasler telling him he needed to adjust his attitude.

Hasler suggested Magnussen should work with John Novak, the mind coach employed by the club.

“One of the biggest things to come out of this was there was no one to help him over there. There were no sports psychiatrists and he had limited support.”
