Also in 2020 we would like to organise a training stage to set great results at the Para Athletics Grand Prix in Paris (France), Jesolo (Italy) and Notwill (Zwitserland). Last year Johannes Nambala and Ananias Shikongo with guide Sem Shimanda participated in a training stage in The Netherlands. During this training stage they set fast times for a good position in the current rankings.
The athletes improved their running techniques at athletics club AC TION and got strength training from Leon Stevense Personal Training. They also get support from Pro-F physiotherapists. Members of AC TION participated in a Paralympic Meet & Greet and learned how to be a guide runner and how running blind feels. We also visited the Dutch National Training Center Papendal and trained together with the Dutch Paralympic athletics team. We shared our story with the participants of the Sports Leadership program at Nyenrode Business University. It was a great first meeting between the Dutch and Namibian sports professionals!
