About

FOSTERINGTHE EVOLUTIONOF TALENT

TW1N supports athletes, institutions and projects across Europe in freeing the power of dual career.

Dual Career refers to the alliance of high-performance sport with education or work to allow an athlete to realize their full potential in life. In this respect, investing in vocational development means more to athletes than just a safety net for the future.

Years of working with sportsmen and sportswomen have taught us that the tailored exploration of a meaningful life alongside sport is a supreme factor in well-being and, thus, athletic development. In short: Happy people are better athletes.

Help building this link is the mission of TW1N; in favour of the athlete, in favour of the sport system, and, in favour of the international community.
