Water polo, Spain
Sergi Pedrerol plays water polo for Spain and has won gold and silver medals in the Olympic Games and World Championships.
"When I began to see the end of my sporting career, I started thinking about my future. I joined the IOC ACP in 2006 and, with Adecco's help, I'm now a director’s assistant in water sport installation. I feel lucky because I can mix the end of my sporting life with the start of my work life – a perfect transition. The support and help I received has been very important. I'm beginning a new life with increased career knowledge. I love sports management. I’m not sure what will happen in the future, but I have increased confidence in terms of my career and would like to continue in the sports world."
