가장 완벽한 수행을 한 25인의 여자운동선수들

For professional athletes, striving to be the best comes as second nature. In a competitive world driven by high stakes and high pressure, the ones who reign from the top tend to possess both the technical precision required of their sport and also minds of steel that won’t crack under pressure. But is the pursuit of perfection ultimately worth it in the end? Below, famous athletes including Nadia Comaneci, Kim Yu-Na, Katie Ledecky, and more talk about winning, losing, and dealing with pressure the size of a nation.

Kim Yu-Na

“Because winning a gold medal had been a dream of mine since a young age, I needed to empty my mind during the preparation for the Olympics by telling myself that it would be OK not to win a gold medal. It was to reduce the pressure within me. So, to my surprise, I wasn’t nervous at all. I felt almost comfortable right before and during the performance. I think that’s how I was able to perform really well.” —CNN Talk Asia, June 2011

금메달은 어린 시절부터의 꿈이었기 때문에 저는 올림픽을 준비하는 동안 금메달이 아니어도 좋아라고 스스로에게 말함으로써 마음을 비우는 것이 필요했어요..그것은 스스로에게 가해지는 압박감을 줄이기 위한 것이었죠..그리고 놀랍게도 저는 경기 전이나 경기하는 동안 어떤 긴장감도 없이 아주 편안함을 느꼈어요.. 그것이 제가 경기를 잘 할수 있도록 했다고 생각해요.
