Managing pressure and emotions can be one of the biggest challenges that elite sportspeople face. Performing physically and obtaining results is impossible without being in good state of mental health. The mind has to be in a good place for everything to come together on the field. Many sportspeople have openly highlighted the issue, but awareness still needs to be raised. The Sports Tomorrow Congress, the sport innovation congress initiative from Barça Innovation Hub, will take place on 27 and 28 February, and one of the sessions will look into the matter with former Barça player Bojan Krkic.
The former FC Barcelona first team player will be the main draw at the 'Emotional management in highly demanding and high performance environments' session on Monday 27 February on the first day of the congress. Bojan will relate his personal experiences in this area, both while he was at Barça and other clubs around the world. Managing expectations, media pressure and emotional well-being will be some of the topics covered during the session scheduled for 10.00am CET, moderated by the journalist, Raül Llimós.
The panel featuring Bojan will be one of the main draws on the first day of the Sports Tomorrow Congress. Other sports-related initiatives will see the roller hockey coach Edu Castro feature at the 'High performance psychology & methodology application' session. The afternoon programme will see an in-depth discussion with the basketball player Cory Higgins during the session, 'Mental preparation for elite basketball: A fire chat with Cory Higgins'.
The Sports Tomorrow Congress will take place at the Feria de Gran Vía, as part of the Mobile World Congress, and will see experts from the world of technology, innovation, medicine, and performance in sport convene for two days of sessions. This year's slogan is The Minds Behind The Game and will include a discussion about the importance of artificial intelligence in the different sports-related disciplines.
The congress is aimed at every professional involved in the wide range of sport-related disciplines. Attending this edition in-person requires an invitation, but the entire congress can be watched online, with tickets available via this link.
