Star gymnast Simone Biles’ pullout from the Tokyo Olympics and tennis player Naomi Osaka’s withdrawal from the French Open has yet again brought mental health of athletes back in focus. Olympic bronze medalist Gagan Narang shares with us what it’s like to be in the pressure cooker of the world’s most intense competition, while sports psychologist to elite athletes Vaibhav Agashe shares why it’s important to train the mind and not just the body.
