Two presentations have been carried out by the Maldives Olympic Committee (MOC) as part of the first phase of their athletes' mentoring programme.
The programme is designed to help develop talent within the country, with instructors stressing how athletes need to show "dedication and desire" and constantly work hard.
It is hoped this will help to move the athletes up to professional standard, and allow them to impress at major events.
The first part of the programme was given by Asiyah Abdul Raheem, who offered guidance through a presentation called "Good Nutrition - a key to win the game".
It was followed by a talk by Ahmed Marzooq, the MOC secretary general.
His presentation was entitled "What If?" and looked at a 12-week period where he utilised a training and diet plan designed for an athlete.
It is claimed his talk provided the programme's participants with added inspiration as they seek to develop their careers.
The session was closed by Abdul Razzaq Ibrahim, managing director of Sports Corporation.
He encouraged athletes to make the change to behaving like professional athletes to strive towards becoming champions in their sport.
The MOC plan to stage the next part of the mentoring programme before the end of the year, with specific sports expected to be targeted.
