Article Notes:

The Tokyo Olympics were a big step forward for team South Africa with the addition of bringing sport psychologist Professor Pieter Kruger to the Games for athlete support.  While other countries have made this addition at past Games, it’s a first for SA.  However, Kruger himself is well-versed in working with a wide range of athletes and organizations.  He’s supported numerous rugby clubs in both South Africa and internationally.  His clients have also included Formula 1’s McLaren, Great Britain Rowing, UK Athletics, Chelsea FC, Hollywood actors, and well-known singers.  What’s the same is that they are all human, with the same physiological aspects to their brains and the same neurological processes.
