The European Olympic Academies is delighted to announce the appointment of Katrin Wallmann as its Project Manager of Olympic Education and EU Projects. The appointment of Wallmann comes at a crucial time for the EOA as it continues to develop its programmes and initiatives.
With a desire to combine her educational background of politics and her passion for sports, Wallmann is currently in the final stages of completing her master’s degree in International Sport Development and Politics from the German Sport University Cologne. She is known at the EOA for holding the position of Coordinator of the President’s office, which led her to the new role.
Having gained valuable insights into organised sports and established a wide network of contacts through her position at the EOA, Wallmann expressed her enthusiasm to join the new role and her commitment to fostering a thriving Olympic education and EU Projects.
“During the EOA Congress last year, I gradually familiarised myself more with the organisational aspects and responsibilities of the EOA. This experience motivated me to take this opportunity and apply for this position. I am willing to gain more responsibility and expand my knowledge while engaging with various EU projects and connecting with new people.”
Wallmann is excited about her duties in a new role.
“I will be actively participating in three Erasmus+ projects: SOPROS, BESST, and FB-LS, alongside my involvement in the upcoming EOA Congress where I will be developing the meeting’s concept.”
On top of her responsibilities with EU projects, Wallmann will be involved in the different Olympic and EOA events.
“One project that I am excited about is the European Youth Olympic Festival in Maribor, where the EOA will play a visible role. This will be one of my first projects to take on, and I am eager to contribute by working closely with the event’s preparations and then witnessing the outcome.”
Wallmann is thrilled to embark on this journey with the EOA and eagerly anticipates contributing to the organisation missions.
“I approach my role with a dedicated work ethic and a genuine passion for sport, ensuring that the upcoming events will run smoothly and successfully. This is a wonderful opportunity for me to learn, grow, and gain further expertise.”
The EOA warmly welcomes Wallmann to her new role and looks forward to her contribution in Olympic Education and EU projects.
