This Tuesday afternoon, the project ELIT-in took place, belonging to the European programme Erasmus+, which has been in development since the beginning of 2018 coordinated by the Andalucian Swimming Federation (FAN) together with the Sevilla FC Foundation, with the main objective of focusing on the enhancement of the skill and quality of elite athletes as well as their professional development.

With the event taking place at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, the attendees expressed different opinions on the sport. They also discussed both public and private entities in a relaxed setting and with experimental methodologies. Carlos Marchena, the assistant to the director of football, as the representative of the club, was in attendance at the ceremony as an elite Andalucian athlete who is taking part in different professional activities after retiring from competitive sport.

The results and conclusions of the meeting will be included in the inquiry of the ELIT-in project, which now reaches the end of the diagnostic phase, having carried out surveys and interviews with more than a hundred elite European athletes as well as sporting organisations of interest.
