Torchbearer Korakaki on the power of a positive mindset

Olympic champ Anna Korakaki knows how to train a strong mind, telling us "Every thought, even positive, can have a negative effect". Winning the Rio 2016 gold medal in the 25m pistol shooting competition was evidence to her that any emotion can be the difference between victory and defeat in her sport. The Greek even suggests avoiding social media to keep focused. That's despite going viral herself after being chosen to be the first female ever to start an Olympic torch relay, after she was selected to receive the flame from the High Priestess at the lighting ceremony in Ancient Olympia.
