“Athletes have much to contribute to the world of work and even more so when it is related to sport, because in the end we know first-hand the needs there are. Managing the two things is difficult, but it is possible and it gives us a lot because, after finishing my sporting career, besides being a high-level athlete I will also be as well trained as other people of my age,” reflects Laia.
Last edition, the grant was handed to Laia Talarn, Spanish judo champion in the under 78 kg category. Laia was chosen among hundreds of athletes. She has combined her career as a judoka with the Master in Sports Management: “I thought that to carry on with my life as an athlete, having an eight-hour job now would not be compatible with the training, and continuing my education was a good choice.”, explains Laia.
