Is music influential enough to bring home the gold in Sochi? Some scientists say yes and so do I. You may have seen athletes jamming out just prior to their event or even with their ear buds on during competition. According to research by sports psychologist Peter Terry – music has been shown to improve endurance performance, assisting people to run 18 percent longer. Also when you are doing the same amount of work while listening to music you use 1-2 % less oxygen. Music can help adjust a person’s confidence and mood. YouTube channel ASAP Science says… “Even during competition, music can narrow an athlete’s attention, diverting the athlete’s sensations of fatigue.”

U.S. Gold medalist Jamie Anderson was seen taking out a set of ear buds after her win in the slopestyle event. Snowboarder Seamus O’Connor of Ireland said “If I forgot my headphones or if my phone died then I’d be really, really upset. It would definitely change my performance if I didn’t have my music”. American Luger Kat Hansen says “Strictly Beyoncé. My girl Bey. She just gets me fierce and I get stoked and I just have to (dance). I have good mojo going on so it’s just how I roll”.

I’ll have your mojo workin’ when you’re listening to In The Mix with HK this Friday and Saturday night at 10pm right here on Mix 94.9! I’ll be throwin’ down remixes of Olympic proportions on…….Pharrell Williams – “Happy”, One Republic – “Counting Stars”, Shakira & Rihanna – “Can’t Remember To Forget You” and Miley Cyrus – “Adore You”. And that’s just part of the first set. It’s gonna be like an Olympic Decathlon leaving you in a pool of sweat by the time I get done with the likes of Avicii, Zedd, Passenger, Aloe Blacc, NoNoNo, Katy Perry, One Direction and more!

Remember…if it’s hot, if it’s new and it makes you wanna move…you’re In The Mix with HK.
