Towards the end of this month’s broadcast of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards, Michael Johnson introduced the Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented this year to Britain’s retired former Olympic and world heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill. In the course of his short address to the camera the former US sprinter - who finished his athletics career with four Olympic and eight world golds - spoke of how top performers had to accept and then deal with the pressure of expectation.

The road to the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, runs through Norwich, a hilly and wooded family-oriented farming community tucked between Interstates 89 and 91 in rural Vermont. With a main street lined with white clapboard colonial buildings and a landmark steepled church, Norwich could be a set designer’s rendering of a tiny New England village.
