Few sports fans know her name, yet they probably have her to thank for the Springboks’ World Cup victory in 2007.

Dr Sherylle Calder is probably the most successful person in sport.

Exaggeration?

Well, consider this…

She helped both the Springboks and the English rugby sides win World Cups.

She helped the All Blacks and the Australian cricket team to victory.

There’s also the South African hockey and Davis Cup tennis teams, England’s 2012 elite athletes, the national cricket teams of Kenya, Canada and Netherlands, the Prada Yachting team, an Australian AFL side, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, the French First division club AS Monaco and one of the England county cricket sides.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed visual awareness coach (and EyeGym founder) Dr Sherylle Calder for his weekly “ShapeShifter” feature.
