The RMP's role in building an Olympic Gold Medalist

An Olympic Weight Lifting champion needed help finding the motivation to continue in his sport after a significant personal loss.

The RMP was administered to the athlete to identify his underlying needs. His RMP highlighted his strongest striving was the desire for Status; meaning he places value on respect, reputation, title and being perceived as 'the best' in his athletic field.


His coach was able to use these results to give the athlete 'VIP treatment', creating an environment that fulfilled his desire for Status. When our needs are met, we are in flow.


His coach used his flow-state as a mechanism to overcome adversity, level-up his performance and motivate him to become 'the sport's unrivalled king'.

In 2008, the athlete went on to win a Gold Medal and break his previous personal records at the Beijing Olympics.
