Peter Jensen is a sports psychologist who has worked frequently with professional Canadian sports teams. A native of Toronto, Jensen played several sports including baseball, hockey, and football. He attributed his interest in sports psychology to his youth when he “had a very excitable personality, and learned that my excitability got in the way of performing at my best in certain situations”. Jensen has worked as a sports psychologist for the Canadian Olympics team since 1984; the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games marked his seventh Olympics. Jensen served as the athletic director of Glendon College, York University’s satellite campus. In 1988, he managed Collingwood’s Centre for High Performance. In 1991, he established the consulting company Performance Coaching.
