Sports Performance Conference 2016
January 22, 2016
As momentum builds for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, athletes, coaches, researchers and students will convene at the University for a major Sports Performance Conference just announced for January 2016.
Aiming to build stronger links between the latest sports science research from around the world with athletes’ performances on the pitch, the Sports Performance Conference 2016 will consider how physiology, nutrition, coaching education, psychology and talent spotting all go together to impact on individual and team performance across a range of sports.
Organised by individuals involved in the highly-successful Sports Performance course based within the Department for Health, keynote speakers at the event include Professor Romain Meeusen, head of the Department of Human Physiology from the Vrije Universiteit Brussels, talking about the risks of over-training as well as the cognitive aspects of performance; plus leading academics Professor Mike Gleeson, from Loughborough University and Professor Dave Collins of the University of Central Lancashire.
