Marina Gallego Durán IOC

For more than 10 years, Marina Gallego Durán has been a professional sailor wholly devoted to her discipline. In 2008, after missing out on qualifying for the Olympic Games in Beijing, she reflected on a career beyond sports. “I got in touch with the Adecco Foundation in Spain because of the IOC Athlete Career Programme. After attending one of their seminars, they advised me on how to combine sailing with a trainer career for young athletes in Palma de Mallorca, where I come from. As well as this, I am coaching a laser sailing team, which helps keep my finger on the pulse of the sailing world.”
