Experienced coaches and trainers will be the key to a sustainable way of getting athletes on the best possible level and keeping the passion for sport alive.

The professional sports industry has changed massively in the past and will continue to undergo constant development in the future. Nevertheless, there are some invariants, such as the competition between athletes at the highest international level.
