Once in a generation, an athlete comes along who resets the definition of success and sets the bar higher for everyone who follows behind him. In the past few weeks, Jamie Vardy has emerged as one of these athletes after scoring 10 goals in 10 games as a striker for Leicester City.
*Results may vary based on the individual.
Prior to Vardy’s incredible performance, Leicester City was a team not exactly known for its performance. In fact, it was swept under the rug by most as a team that was considered nothing out of the ordinary. This all changed with Vardy’s incredible goal streak. When interviewed to see what the strategies behind his record-breaking performance were, Vardy responded with two things – studying his opponent’s weaknesses and cryotherapy.
After their performance last season, the managers of Leicester City brought in a cryotherapy chamber in hopes that it would help their team. Hearing that the chamber increased performance and the difference cryotherapy made is evident in Vardy’s record-setting performance. Not only did it increase his performance, it also helped him recover from a groin injury that would have otherwise kept him off the field. When interviewed about how he reached levels of peak performance, Vardy said: “Obviously, the Cryo chamber that we’ve got at the training grounds come in use. It’s absolutely freezing, but it helps you in your recovery so fair play to the club for getting that in.”
