    HSBC Sport | Inside the Minds of the World’s Best Athletes

    In the sevens game the lungs on the legs are what get fatigued first and then the mind goes after that So if we can get our legs and lungs to fatigue as far as they can and then keep our mind in the game then we know that we can go just a little bit extra Doesn’t mean we’re gonna play a whole other game it means that last 30 seconds the last minute that last two minutes that’s all we need You do suddenly realize that you’re breathing a little bit shallower than normal that you’re slightly more nervous than you should be and it’s a reminder you…

    Interview Jeremy Rozier – Sevens Rugby

    In fact XVs rugby is a lot more a game where there is, since there are fifteen players on the field, a little more physical clash whereas at 7 rugby since the number of players is divided by two There is a little less confrontation for a little more action, due to the speed, the long passes and it necessarily involves a lot more the individual technique of the players as well their stamina Efforts are very intense between the repetition of rushes and the repetition of the high intensity races that the players will do on a field which is of the same size. Massive changes on the regulatory…

    Coming Back from Injury – Tiana Penitani

    I was playing in Moscow last year at the Rugby Sevens World Cup, and then I just got hit in an awkward tackle. I tried to take a step, then heard a pop. So, straight away I knew that was my anterior cruciate ligament, also known as ACL. It was heart-breaking. It definitely was. My biggest injury had been a sprained ankle which put me out for a couple of weeks. Not being able to play sport at all, it wasn’t me at all. So I just put all my focus into rehab. Everything I started off with in rehab was really, really basic. And correcting all of the previous…

    Charlotte Caslick | My Journey | YoPRO

    Meet Charlotte… She’s the glamorous sports star with her sights set on 2020. And she was born to play Rugby Sevens! Umm…excuse me Sevens for women didn’t even exist when I started my journey. Oh…really? Yeah, I had a crack at heaps of other sports. But they weren’t for me. Then I found rugby. Right..Then you mastered Sevens? Well, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing. I had to learn to tackle. And hit, and get hit, over, and over. But…it was worth it. And who can forget your golden moment? Second time round, and it doesn’t get easier. I’ll have to train twice as hard. And twice as long. You…

    The Secret Motivations of the World’s Toughest Athletes

    My heart wouldn’t have been nearly as full without rugby. I used to play college football and yes I had the passion for it and I loved it, but nothing would fill my heart like rugby did, it’s just an amazing experience all around there’s nothing like it and without it I mean, I wouldn’t have met my best friends, my brothers and I wouldn’t have experienced probably the greatest life I could have asked for without rugby. I got a wife and two kids. I’m away from the kids a lot and so they always ask me – what am I doing, what am I doing? They want to…

    Rugby Sevens: Canada Defending on Home Turf at TO2015

    What is Rugby Sevens? Rugby Sevens is an exciting sport. The games are only 14 minutes long with seven-minute halves. It’s quick. It’s very fast. For spectators who don’t necessarily know rugby, I think rugby sevens is the perfect sport. It’s almost like a sprint for 14 minutes. It’s a bit like taking the essentials of the game and putting it out there for the crowd to see; that’s kind of what sevens really does. Tell us about your Pan Am experience Guadalajara in 2011. John Moonlight Team Canada, rugby sevens and Canada’s senior men’s rugby team It’s such an awesome feeling. Not many people actually get to represent their…
