Quantifying movement demands in elite sport: Highlighting Performance Issues

Professor Liam Kilduff

Spring has sprung so it's time to conclude the winter seminar series - and for that we are delighted to welcome Professor Liam Kilduff, a sport scientist from the College of Engineering at Swansea University. Liam is keenly interested in finding out what makes elite athletes excel - and how to use this information to help them train to perform even better. His research interests range from Strength and Power Development to Recovery Strategies to pre-conditioning strategies and athlete monitoring. His 'study systems' include fencing (e.g. see here), international netball players and professional rugby union players (e.g. see here).

This presentation will focus on the role of microtechnology within elite and professional sport and demonstrate how this technology is allowing both the

researcher and practitioner to work in synergy. It will highlight how microtechnology is currently helping identify key performance issues and the toolbox of strategies developed to provide performance solutions, with a focus on the 4 key performance pillars. 

Hope to see many of you - everyone most welcome to attend!
