Ryan Sheckler Wins X-Games Gold Medal

ryan-sheckler-1024x682During the 2009 finals of the summer X-Games, Ryan Sheckler broke his foot. In April the following year, he hired me to coach him as he prepared to make a comeback. After many hours of hard work, Ryan made it to the finals and was facing stiff competition in a young up and coming professional, Nyjah Huston.

Ryan beat Nyjah by a very small margin, and this was the beginning of my path as a coach. I realized that if Ryan beat Nyjah by a small percent, and if I was able to provide Ryan with a small percent increase in his final performance, I was a part of that win.
