Tia Hellebaut and Wim Vandeven announce new initiative
Former Olympic champion high jump Tia Hellebaut and her partner Wim Vandeven have revealed a new initiative on Friday at the press conference on the Night of Athletics.
“In collaboration with a number of athletic clubs, including AV Toekomst, Looise AV, Roba and the South Limburg athletics, we have decided to set up an academy that will work across teams, with the subtitle ‘the athlete at the center’. The reason for this is that our athletics trainers have too much work and that they are paid too little. We therefore want a fair remuneration to be paid. That then creates a win-win situation. The target group is the youth athletes, especially the mini-men, cadets and students. They will be accompanied and trained at one of the clubs and within their infrastructure. There will be a summer and winter program with three stages of a week “, it sounded.
Intention is a versatile qualitative training for talented youth athletes by providing better youth trainers. The focus will be on tailored quality and guidance and that in cooperation with and within the existing clubs. That training may not become one-sided. The athletes must be able to taste various disciplines. This yields more results, just look at Tia, Daphne Schippers and Nafissatou Thiam who all received their training in multiple disciplines. ”
