My name is Jess and I’m a Sport Psychology student from Melbourne, Australia. I’ve started this blog so I can share my thoughts on Sport, Psychology and everything in between. Expect posts about social issues in sport, sport as a vehicle to mental health and my own experiences with psychological illness.
Oh and if you have been wondering where the name for this blog comes from it originates from a lesser known quote by the late, great(est) Muhammad Ali.
‘Only a man who knows what is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.‘
The ‘Extra Ounce’ refers to that something special we can draw from deep within ourselves to be successful.
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to embarking on this journey with you!
