A lot of athletes spend long periods away from home, travelling, training and competing in their sport, and it can't be easy. International cricketers perhaps have it the worst, with some, like David Warner, even spending more than 300 days away from home! Luckily, a lot of the cricketers can bring their families away on tours, but the vast majority of athletes don't have that option. #athletesempoweringathletes #athletesawayfromhome

There was no greater story from the Rio Olympics about how technology, self-motivation and talent identification aligned than Kenya's silver medallist javelin thrower, Julius Yego, who was nicknamed "Mr YouTube Man" because he learned how to throw by watching videos of javelin athletes. #AthletesEmpoweringAthletes #EliteAthleteDevelopment

This is an interesting take on talent identification. Much like our career philosophy at The Final Whistle, sampling sports can help with skill development and eventually choosing your correct sport. #talentidentification #eliteathletedevelopment #athletesempoweringathletes
