General info about WAoS
The programme gives the essential insights into how the engines of one of the biggest projects of humanity, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, work
I am speechless. I came with an empty cup, now I have something to share. Inspired with how to implement what I have learned.
One of the best courses I ever did in my sports career!
You may have developed strategies before, but the IPC workshop has been simplified and modified for the NPCs to get on with planning and implementation
It's been an amazing opportunity to discuss so many issues surrounding the world of Sport, with so many positive people
