Eating ice cream while watching our Australian athletes compete at Rio, I told my ten year old that he could become an Olympic champion. He still has time to apply himself and train, train, train (never mind that he has yet to distinguish himself in school sports of any kind). He could do it! Conversely, my days of pie in the sky champion status are long gone.
Can we move on from these lost opportunities (after all, who needs gold?) and harness some learning and teaching related benefits from movement and exercise?
