What you'll do

Your entire contribution to this experience will go to support the Make A Mark project, a personal initiative led by Abhinav and me which supports three refugee athletes in order to reach the minimum qualifying score for Tokyo 2020.

Together, Abhinav and I will help you understand the techniques of stress management. We’ll also teach you about how to deal with your inner thoughts and emotions.

If meditation was a sport, it would be shooting. So, with 15+ years of shooting experience, both Abhinav and I have learned a whole bunch of techniques when it comes to managing extreme and highly emotional situations.
We’ll explore visualization and techniques, hypnosis, neurofeedback, biofeedback, and more.

Being an elite shooter is the very opposite of being emotionless, it's about learning how to deal with anxiety and pressure in the most positive way—via mindfulness, smart goal setting (focusing exclusively on what is really under our control) and, most importantly, an overarching philosophy of life where medals and records do not define who we are, but vice versa.

During our session, we will present a series of practical anecdotes that contain transferrable skills which are applicable in and beyond beyond athletics.

Come join us! To learn how to sleep at night, and more...

In Nicco's 16 year career he fired over 400,000 shots, and afterward as a Sport Engineer, worked for Ferrari developing his own air rifle, used to win the gold medal at Rio 2016. Nicco now works at the International Olympic Committee as Senior Sports Intelligence Manager.

Abhinav and Nicco are great story tellers and very humble about their careers and life achievements. It was very personable and they made me think about some moments and dreams that I am trying to achieve and I found the techniques and ideas they shared very applicable and useful.

It was amazing to hear stories from 2 Olympic champs, tips and tricks how to get better, stronger and enjoy sport much beyond the trainings and competitions. Really a must-do for shooters and everyone who wants to improve their performance in the psychological level!

What a treat, listening to world-class athletes! I expected tips and tricks, and instead had a glimpse into the hosts' lives. I am in awe of their focus, drive and accomplishments -- and how they got there seems totally achievable, the way it was presented and shared. Authentic, honest and real storytelling. Resiliency in action. Thank you for opening us to an audience! I am inspired.

I think an hour it's too short on terms of what you are trying to explain, it was awesome this short time but will be cool to have a more extensive chat! Thanks for sharing this!!!!

Niccolò è stato amichevole e coinvolgente. Molto interessante l'aspetto della scelta dei giusti obiettivi (quelli che sono sotto il proprio controllo) e la distinzione tra obiettivi e conseguenze. I discorsi di carattere più generale sono stati intervallati da aneddoti, spesso divertenti, che danno uno spaccato sul mondo non solo del tiro ma dello sport professionistico.
