About Elite Sports

  • Elite sports is top level sports which typically mean professional sports in that the sport is the athlete’s job rather than merely a hobby.
  • It goes without saying there is a difference between playing football with your friends or the local club and then being a top player with Manchester United or between having a go at a punching bag a couple of times a week and then being Muhammad Ali or Mike Tyson.
  • What does it actually take to do elite sports? How good do you need to be and how much do you need to train? What sacrifices can you expect to make in terms of for instance family, wild parties and alcohol?
  • Keynote speakers on elite sports take a closer look at these matters and questions.
