Life is not a sport for spectators

I have always been involved and committed in sport – as an athlete, coach, volunteer, researcher, communicator and spectator. My educational background is a master degree in Political Science and Physical Education and I have five chapters of my work life with different perspectives of sport. I have extensive theoretical knowledge and many practical experiences about the value of sport. My knowledge and experiences are obtained from youth education, higher education and research institutions, and the daily life of Danish and international elite sport.

For more than three decades I have worked with top athletes, coaches, high performance managers and researchers. In addition, I have worked with many municipalities, clubs, federations and organizations as well as some of Denmark’s largest private companies. Finally, I have many experiences as chairman and member of boards, voluntary organizations, federations, associations and public institutions. Today I have a number of collaborators whom I appreciate and which I solve different types of tasks for and along with. Because – Life is not a sport for spectators!

The happy guy from Funen with a passion for the world’s fastest ball game

The joy of seeing each other is mutual, when a few weeks ago I met Allan Bentsen at his office in the House of Sports: the “epicenter” of sports in the cathedral city of Roskilde. The face has become more furrowed and the hair has become shorter on the 55-year-old sports director, but the Funen … Read more
