In this episode, I speak with Conrad Leinemann, a former Canadian Olympic athlete, about his journey in sport and the major life lessons that he has learned about resilience, hard work, and pursuing excellence, both personally and professionally. Performing at our best requires a specific mindset, as well as putting certain strategies to work with regularity in our lives. Conrad shares what he learned from being coached by some amazing mentors throughout his athletic career. As well, he discusses the charitable organization, CANFUND, that he and his wife, Jane Roos, set up to help fund countless members of the Canadian Olympic team over the last decade. To date they have raised over 22 million dollars.
Conrad Leinemann (born April 2, 1971 in Kelowna, British Columbia) is a male beach volleyball player from Canada, who won the gold medal in the men’s beach team competition at the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Manitoba, partnering with Jody Holden. He represented his native country at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia.
