Emotional Fitness: Reflection of an Olympic Swimmer | Michael Jamieson | TEDxUniversityofStrathclyde


After a career in sports which featured great achievements as well as significant challenges, Michael shares some of his career lessons with the audience. Michael recently ‘transitioned’ out of competitive swimming after 10 years as a professional. He was very privileged to compete and win medals at two Commonwealth Games, European/World Championships and the Olympic Games.

Michael is passionate about promoting conversation around psychological health and particularly a personal duty of care in high pressure environments.
