In the interviews following their successes, they spoke as one about the importance of their 'teams', of their coaches who had brought them to their athletic peaks of ability.
I took this on board.
Clearly, in order to do better at my own sport I needed to see a coach and let him guide me to perfection.
So I did. I had a two-hour session with a professional who certainly improved my performance.
I also now have a strict training regime to follow. I must spend at least an hour per session, two or three times a day training hard.
Shouldn't be too exhausting though. Oh didn't I mention? My sport is darts.
