Olympian, Olympian Coach and author

Pat Winslow Connolly

3 Time Olympian: 

  • Rome
  • Tokyo
  • Mexico City

When at 16 years old, Pat qualified in the 800 meter run for the USA Olympic Track and Field Team, she became a life long pioneer in women's sports both as an athlete and a coach. After winning 15 National Championship titles in the 800m. Pentathlon and Long Jump and competing on several USA Teams she began coaching at Beverly Hills High School. She started UCLA's first Women's Track Team that eventually went on to win the National Team Championship in 1977. 

Olympians Evelyn Ashford and Alyson Felix are amongst the many Olympic Champions Coach Connolly has worked with. Pat is outspoken and often quoted about the use of performance enhancing drugs. "Using banned substances to get an edge on your competitor is un-sportsmanlike; it is cheating. An athlete who takes drugs will never know if her performances are a result of hard work and talent, or the pharmacist who games doping controls." With these steadfast beliefs she set out to conquer East German drug takers. Pat left no stone unturned in the field of reaching peak performances by pioneering with sports psychologists to learn biofeedback and positive imagery, and the non invasive healing arts of alternative medicine and nutrition.
