It’s a family affair for this episode of Mind On The Game as our Founder Freddie Cocker checks in with his half-Swedish cousin, Lucas Burns.
Lucas is currently studying for a Masters in IT & Management at Linkoping University but growing up he was quite a handy handball player (pardon the pun).
Lucas played the sport until he was 19 years old and almost took it up professionally aged 15 when he was offered the opportunity.
In this episode we discuss his handball journey, how it shaped his identity growing up, team culture and how the concept of pressure impacted his playing career.
We also discuss the impact that moving around different countries growing up had on his identity, his mental health and the period of depression he went through during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We chuck in a bit of family chat as well!
As always, #itsokaytovent
