In commitment to local athletes, Formentera frees up €15k in aid

foto ajudes esport 2The Formentera Council's office of sport reports it has awarded €15,000 in assistance to four local sportswomen and men—two windsurfers (Sergi Escandell and Mateo Sanz), one runner (Andrea Romero) and one tennis player (Gemma Lairón).

Sport secretary Jordi Vidal described the goal of the assistance as “helping [these four] to develop and continue receiving guidance in competitions at the national and international level”. According to the secretary, the individual subsidies come thanks to a deal struck between the Formentera Council and a wing of the regional government's directorate general for sport, the Fundació per a l'Esport Balear.

The money will go towards gear, equipment and travel to competitions, as well as nutritionists, sport psychologists, physiotherapists and other professionals involved in elite sports.

For their part, the four pledge to wear insignia of the Formentera Council on their competitive and training gear, collaborate in and give technical feedback on the Council's programme on sportsmanlike values; and mention the Council's sponsorship on social media.
