After being at the Games and seeing some of the fittest athletes in the world throw down, one of the most interesting things I saw was the effect of confidence on the athletes.  If there was a particular athlete that FELT CONFIDENT in an event or a movement, you could see a completely different facial look and body posture over those that didn't like a movement or event.  Nick Urankar is extremely strong and you could see his confidence during the Clean and Jerk Ladder compared to the Snatch and Bar Muscle Up event.  And you could see the difference in Katrin Davisdotter during the Two-Stroke Pull event where she was pushing the field and you could see her confidence.  But then when she realized she couldn't stop Laura Horvath, she literally slowed down and her whole body changed. But confidence isn't about winning.  It's about being confident you will do your absolute best.  It has NOTHING to do with winning.  It has to do with you knowing that you are are able to push as hard as you possibly can because you have put the time in, that you have tested yourself, that you have done what you needed to do.  Sure its great to win but if you are able to give your best performance than the win is just the icing on the cake.  We all want to win but there is only 1 in EVERY situation.  But if you put yourself in a situation that you HAVE to win, then you are putting pressure in areas that don't count or that you can't even do anything about it.  So pick your head up, smile, take a deep breath and then attack.  Don't look concern yourself with anything else.  Just do your best!!! :)
