Show Notes for Episode Two of the Go Girls Podcast – Interview with Rechelle Hawkes

Click below to listen to episode two of the Go Girls Podcast.  In this episode, I talk to Rechelle Hawkes and my friend Maria. Rechelle is a triple Olympic gold medal HockeyRoo. She has also taken the Athlete’s Oath at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. She is a superstar!

This is what Rechelle has to say:

On results that don’t go your way:

  • There are always results that you’re not happy with. As an athlete, you are always striving for excellence. Seoul 88 always drove her on to be a better player in the future.
  • A lot of people give up after their first disappointment. Get back up on, reset your goals and reevaluate. Keep persevering.

On losing gracefully:

  • It is about not sulking and whinging and carrying on and complaining. Be respectful for the opposition and say to your team and yourself: “let’s learn from this. Next time we are going to do better.”

On life:

  • Never give up ..  you are going to have setbacks along the way. Small setbacks or big setbacks. You have to keep persevering. no one has everything thing go all their way all the time.

On failure:

  • You have to have failure.. We tend to learn more from our failures because we focus in on what we did wrong. Failures are good.
