Upon completing Wednesday’s training session, Ibiza’s first team squad had a special activity on its agenda. Pablo Alfaro’s team received a visit from Mar Sánchez, a former, and so far, the only Ibizan Olympian. One of the Balearic island’s sporting references, Mar Sánchez competed during the Sydney 2000 games as a pole-vaulter proudly representing Spain and the island of Ibiza on the global stage. Today, Mar held a presentation for the players at the press conference room of Can Misses where she shared the experiences gained throughout her career. The squad was also given an insight into the life lessons learned by the former Olympian before being given pieces of advice as professional athletes. With the visit and speech, the team and technical staff rounded off a successful day of resuming training after yesterday’s day off.
