Born in “the sportiest city in the world”, Anta was drawn into sports by his father, who was a coach himself. He has been playing handball since he was six years old, and after finishing his studies he managed both Australian national team selections and a number of clubs. He entered the Guinness Book of Records as the youngest coach of a world national team in handball history.
In addition to having a diploma in sports management, he also studied in the USA, where he completed his postgraduate MBA studies. He completed many additional courses and professional seminars, both for work purposes and for his own interests in the fields of handball, fitness, mind body, and all types of coaching, where he combines his knowledge and passions from metaphysics, psychology, philosophy, relationships and literature.
