Students attended a conference at lycee Jean Bart with 5 professional handball players from USDK. Players were from Cuba, Brazil, Lithuania, Spain and Portugal and each player was able to communicate in more than one language. The athletes were asked various questions regarding health and well being including about how the athletes are able to mentally and physically prepare themselves to train at a top level. How they prepare for competition, how they keep fit, nutrition, training, how they deal with the pressure of being a professional athlete. How the ‘spirit’ of the team is created. Each player took turns to discuss their motivation, how they were supported in pursing their dreams and discussed how their ability to communicate in many languages has enabled them to progress further in competing at the higher level. Students were then given the opportunity to talk personally to the athletes and recieved a momento poster and photographs with the players.
