UNSTUCK S1E8 (Part 1) Olympic Judo Legend Jimmy Pedro

Jimmy Pedro is one of the most decorated judo players in American history. Pedro represented the United States in the 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2004 Olympic Games, winning bronze in 1996 and 2004. In Part 1 this 2 part interview Jimmy walks us through his journey from starting Judo at age 5 through his Bronze Medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games and then his coming up short of his own (and the world's) expectations for a Gold Medal in Sydney in 2000. Jimmy outlines a simple but crucial formula for success: DESIRE + COMMITTMENT + FOCUS + SACRIFICE + RESILIENCE and shares how he has applied that formula throughout his life both in and outside of competitive judo.
