Take the Plunge with Chris Mears

Published on 27/07/2017 by Reka Sardy

A positive mental attitude, not only in sport but generally in life, is a person's biggest strength.

Bridgestone UK are partnering with Chris Mears and Team GB to host an event aimed at helping people realise how self-belief and a positive mental attitude can be their greatest strength in battling and overcoming life’s obstacles.

Diving sensation Chris Mears is no stranger to struggle. He was told he would never compete again after a life-threatening illness landed him in a coma for 3 days, but Chris proved the naysayers wrong and fought his way back to health, and to Olympic gold at the Olympic Games Rio 2016.

“Part of my work as a Bridgestone ambassador is about helping people realise they can chase their dream, no matter what.”

Chris now wants to show everyday battlers that to chase your dream, you have to start with finding the right mental approach. A programme of events at the John Charles Centre in his hometown of Leeds will see him working with Team GB to help people overcome their fear of failure and lack of confidence and to chase their dreams no matter what.

We are incredibly excited to be working with Chris and Team GB and look forward to sharing the stories from the event with you all. Follow us on Facebook to stay up to date with the latest from the Chase Your Dream, No Matter What campaign.
