Lots of athletes have lucky pieces of clothing or lucky rituals. Choose a popular athlete for your country with a ritual. Then discuss - can knickers make you jump further, or is it just psychology getting into a positive frame of mind. This can get you into placebo effects, selective memory, how strong an impact on memory coincidences can be.
