Student testimonial – Pablo did his internship at the Sporting Clube de Portugal

Meet Pablo, our Sport and Exercise Science student who traveled to Lisbon to complete a 2-month internship with the volleyball teams of the Sporting Clube de Portugal!

Here are his impressions:

“My name is Pablo Gongas, I’m 22 years old and I’m Colombian 🇨🇴

I made a 2-month internship in Lisbon with Sporting Club de Portugal and I worked more in depth with the physical & performance area with senior male and female volleyball teams. 

My tasks consisted of observing, helping in the gym, making some warm-ups for the teams, helping analyze and perform different types of physical tests (power, strength, balance, agility and mobility). I also supported the coaching staff, attended some meetings and got to know the people around. 

I learned how a huge sports organization work. Learned from Performance, coaching, psychology, nutrition and the organizational part. How professional athletes live day to day. Their perspectives, their diets, the pressure, the commitment and way more things. It’s a very practical job so I was always moving around learning from different people about different aspects in the sports world. It has been the most enriching and wonderful experience in my life. I’m grateful to the university and sporting for the big opportunity they have given me. I enjoyed every second working there and made me think about my future job working in a sports organization. I think that it’s a great chance to open doors and make contacts for the future, it’s an opportunity to expand our knowledge and become way better professionally. If I go back in time, I will choose it again without a doubt.”
