My name is
Assadillah Karani, I landed on the track more than 6 years ago, after spending
a youth playing soccer. My qualities of speed naturally oriented me towards
sprinting (100m and 200m).
I toasted the stages by winning the French Junior Indoor Championships during my first year. I was then selected in the French Junior team, but I seriously injured my quadriceps. My body wasn't ready to support the level of demands that the high level requires.
It was during this reconstruction phase that I was able to experience the philosophy and methodology put in place by Loïc Aumont.
At that time, we created a working group with my coach Benoit Constant, Loïc, my physiotherapist, and other athletes. I gradually
developed as an athlete but also as a man. I learned to apprehend my thoughts, my feelings on the track, and not to play another character than my own. This in-depth work allowed me to abandon the destructive doubts that surrounded me and hindered my fulfillment.
Loïc's role in this change was decisive. I have integrated the premises of the O.P.O. method and I now think that it is its key
concepts and their practical applications that make the O.P.O. movement specific.
Some of them have particularly marked me:
The first concept, "The Mobility Triangle", still allows me to progress today thanks to a complete vision of performance.
Applicable on the track and in professional life, it helps to easily identify blockages and to act on them before they unbalance the general harmony.
The third concept, "The patient actor of his own path" made me aware of the role I had in creating my own path and making
my own way. Through my thoughts and actions, I can choose my destination and set up a path to get there.
During these 6 years of work, we have done group workshops, mental preparation courses, and long training sessions. We have
experimented many tools that now allow me to coach groups of young athletes, while remaining focused on my olympic goal with the Comoros.
I can't wait to discover the next chapters that the O.P.O. method has in store for me. Thank you and see you soon on the track.
