Keynote: My weakest link
M2 May 26, 2023, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Nils van der Poel
Olympic Champion, World Champion and World Record Holder Speed Skating
In public, Nils has been portrayed as an athlete who knows what he wants and who does not give way to anything. He says himself that it has not been a given self-image, that he has quite often felt weak and not particularly motivated at all.
"Motivation - My weakest link" is a dissection of the most important lessons from Nils' sports career. The lecture is not a passionate speech, but instead an autobiographical account of a boy from Trollhättan who became the best in the world at skating in circles.
