Abstract

In the extremely demanding environment of Olympic sport, the difference between standing on the podium and finishing “in the pack” can often be fractions of a percentage point. Coaches and athletes are thus constantly striving to find effective ways to improve sport performance. Biomechanists, physiologists, sport psychologists, strength and conditioning specialists, engineers, and computer scientists offer coaches and athletes an integrated, coordinated approach that is specifically designed to unlock each athlete’s ultimate performance capability.
