With winning in mind by lanny bassham
Bassham was born in Comanche, Texas. He graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1969, where he participated in the ROTC program.
At the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Bassham won the silver medal in the mixed 50 m rifle three positions event. Between 1972 and 1978, Lanny Bassham won three gold medals at the Pan American Games, and 22 world individual and team titles, setting 4 world records. At the 1976 Olympic he tied for first place with Margaret Murdock in the mixed 50 m rifle three positions. Bassham suggested that both were awarded with gold medals, but the judges placed him first based on review of targets. Yet at the awards ceremony, he asked Murdock to share the first place with him.
Leadership development career
After the 1972 Olympics silver finish, Bassham sought classes in mental discipline under pressure. After failing to find such a seminar, Bassham created a system of mental control after interviewing Olympic gold medalists to discover their winning strategies. Bassham began to write books and teach courses in his methods under the name "Mental Management". For the past 31 years, he has provided "Mental Management" training programs to clients including PGA Tour golfers, Miss America finalists, CEOs, US Navy SEALs, SWAT teams, and the FBI.
In addition, Bassham briefly headed the U.S. Olympic shooting team and raises registered American Quarter Horses.
