The Rafa Nadal Foundation and Telefónica – through their ‘Podium’ program – with the participation of the Spanish Olympic Committee, have created the ‘More than Sports’ Day, with the aim of bringing Olympic sport and its values closer to the children of the Rafa Nadal Foundation Centre.

The first edition of ‘More than Sport’ took place on 5th July, 2017, and sw participation from 70 vulnerable youngsters, alongside four athletes that have received scholarships from Telefonica´s ‘Podium’ program.

After a chat between the children and athletes, during which the youngsters had the chance to learn at first-hand what it takes to become a performance athlete – effort, determination, consistency – it was time to put into practice the various sporting disciplines represented on the day.

Carlos Mayo (athletics), Margarita Morata (karate), Miguel Ángel Pifaffre (archery) and Sofia Zhang (table tennis) were on hand to demonstrate the techniques and peculiarities of each of their sports, whilst emphasising the intrinsic sporting values.

The opportunity to learn about the experiences of high performance athletes showed the children of the Rafa Nadal Foundation Centre how with effort, consistency and determination, anyone can achieve their goals.
