From originally missing out on making the US Paralympic team, to meeting President Barack Obama, 2016 has been a wild ride for Team Athletigen’s Lacey Jai Henderson.
This year marks the 120th anniversary of the first modern Olympic Games. In our retrospective of the past 49 Olympic Games, we have seen feats of extraordinary athletic ability performed on the world’s greatest stage. Thousands of athletes have graced the Olympic arena in the hundreds of events the Olympics offer.
Athletic performance is an intricate mix between coaching, training, access to resources, motivation, and genetics. There is no one perfect recipe for success, because of the complex dependency between these factors.
