Culture of excellence

I was reading this article, and I noticed the following quote from Shane Sutton, the British Cycling Head Coach:

"Dave [Performance Director for British Cycling] always said if we’re not in the top three in our field we shouldn’t be in the building.”

When looking for world-class results, it's not only up to the athletes to strive for excellence. The culture of excellence should be present from top to bottom and be a mission for every single member of the organization.

That's why I do believe in comitted teamwork for individual athletes! The athlete is the machine that is perfected to do the job and the others to support it and guide all of the others issues! Keep posting! Marcos

Remember for every champion, there is team of champions that have supported that person to make him or her a success!
