Dino Zammit recently completed successfully a degree in business and sports management at the University of Hertfordshire in England.
During the course Dino was awarded a professional sports scholarship under the Malta Sports Scholarship Scheme, which is funded by the government and enables Maltese athletes, coaches, and sports professionals to gain higher levels of specialised education or training.
Zammit focused his thesis research on the well-being of elite athletes ahead of international competition: A case study on waterpolo athletes.
The University considered his research of high quality, especially since managing to get 5 Olympic medallists as interviewees.
Zammit said: “My thesis reflects on what athletes must go through to achieve their goals. The years of sacrifice athletes make are often overlooked, spending months away from family to prepare for competitions was the most common sacrifice from the interviewees.
“I hope to help bring this elite mentality to many Maltese athletes in the future, together with giving importance to the mental well-being during the preparation of our athletes.”
Dino Zammit plans to start working closer with Maltese athletes using his vast experience as an athlete himself together with his studies to provide better preparation and management for Maltese athletes.
