Reflection is now regarded as a key facet to any coach’s repertoire. Much of the sports coaching literature related to reflection consider how coaches’ reflect. However, few studies contemplate the possible ways that reflective practice may be used with athletes or how performers themselves engage in such a process. This paper offers the sports coaching fraternity fresh insights into the world of elite performers’ reflective practice and process. Furthermore, the research method used represents an alternative to invasive interview techniques and highlights a paradox wherein representations of the truth may be seen more clearly from a distance.
