Morgan On Success: 'I Don't Stress Out Over The Small Stuff'
(5 votes, average 3.40 out of 5)

Winner of five medals at the recent European junior championships, British gymnast Amelie Morgan told IG in a recent interview that her practical physical and psychological approach to training helps produce success in competition.

“Mentally, I’m pretty relaxed,” said Morgan, who won two silver medals (all-around, balance beam) and three bronze medals (vault, floor exercise, team) at the 2018 European Junior Championships held August 2-5 in Glasgow, Scotland. “I don’t stress out over the small stuff and try to just look at the bigger picture.”

Morgan, who finished second all-around to fellow quintuple medalist Giorgia Villa of Italy in Glasgow, said there is no secret to her consistency and competitive excellence.

“I’m not superstitious, and I believe hard work and putting in the numbers are what make the difference,” she told IG.
