Soccer players under regular training show oxidative stress but an improved plasma antioxidant status. (1/466)Physical activity is known to induce oxidative stress in individuals subjected to intense exercise. In this study, we investigated the lipoprotein profile and the plasma antioxidant status in a group of soccer players engaged in a regular training programme. As was expected for aerobic exercise, high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) and HDL3-C levels were significantly increased in the sportsmen (P<0.05). Total plasma antioxidant capacity was 25% higher in sportsmen than in controls (P<0.005). Accordingly, plasma hydrosoluble antioxidant levels (ascorbic acid and uric acid) were found to be significantly elevated in the soccer players (P<0.005). In addition, these subjects showed high concentrations of alpha-tocopherol in plasma compared with controls (P<0.005). Furthermore, an increase in plasma superoxide dismutase activity was also observed in relation to exercise (P<0.01). The elevation in plasma activities of antioxidant enzymes and the higher levels of free radical scavengers of low molecular mass may compensate the oxidative stress caused by physical activity. High levels of high-density lipoprotein in plasma may offer additional protection by inhibiting low-density lipoprotein oxidation and thus liposoluble antioxidant consumption. Therefore, soccer players under regular training show an improved plasma antioxidant status in comparison to sedentary controls. (+info)
A physiological evaluation of professional soccer players. (2/466)The purpose of this study was to evaluate the physiological functions of a professional soccer team in the North American Soccer League (NASL). Eighteen players were evaluated on cardiorespiratory function, endurance performance, body composition, blood chemistry, and motor fitness measures near the end of their competitive season. The following means were observed: age, 26 yrs; height, 176 cm; weight 75.5 kg; resting heart rate, 50 beats/min; maximum heart rate (MHR), 188 beats/min; maximum oxygen intake (VO2 max), 58.4 ml/kg-min-1; maximum ventilation (VEmax BTPS), 154 L/min; body fat, 9.59%; 12-min run, 1.86 miles; and Illinois agility run, 15.6 secs. Results on resting blood pressure, serum lipids, vital capacity, flexibility, upper body strength, and vertical jump tests were comparable to values found for the sedentary population. Comparing the results with previously collected data on professional American Football backs indicated that the soccer players were shorter; lighter in body weight; higher in VO2 max (4 ml/kg-min-1) and body fat (1.8%); and similar in MHR, VE max, and VC. The 12-min run scores were similar to the initial values observed for the 1970 Brazilian World Cup Team. The agility run results were superior to data collected from other groups. Their endurance capabilities, agility, and low percent of body fat clearly differentiate them from the sedentary population and show them to be similar to that of professional American football backs.

Injuries caused by falling soccer goalposts in Denmark. (3/466)OBJECTIVE: A falling soccer goalpost is associated with the potential risk of serious injury that can sometimes even be fatal. The aim of the study was to analyse the extent of the problem in Denmark and focus on the mechanism of injury and prevention. METHODS: Data were analysed for the period 1989-1997 from the European Home and Leisure Accident Surveillance System, which is an electronic register of the injuries seen in the casualty departments of the hospitals of five selected cities in Denmark representing 14% of the Danish population; in addition, fatal accidents in the whole of Denmark since 1981 were examined. Forty two injured persons were interviewed about the circumstances of the accident. Attempts were made to estimate the proportion of goalposts secured by counterweight in the five different regions, compared with the proportion secured with ground stakes and those that were unsecured, by analysing data from the largest producers of goalposts in Denmark. RESULTS: In the period 1981-1988, two fatal accidents were recorded. In the period 1989-1997, 117 people were injured by a falling goalpost; six of the injuries required hospitalisation. Some 88% of the injured were under the age of 15. In a telephone interview with 42 of the injured, 50% stated that the goalpost fell because someone was hanging on the crossbar. Comparing the five different regions with respect to the proportion of goalposts secured by counterweight and the number of accidents, the following relation was found. Areas in which a high percentage of the goalposts were secured by a counterweight correlated inversely with a high number of accidents (r = -0.9; p = 0.04). CONCLUSION: Soccer is a widely played sport and it is important to be aware that accidents caused by falling goalposts can occur and that they presumably can be prevented by proper use of goalposts, by using secure goalposts, and by securing old goalposts with a counterweight.

Dynamic strength of the quadriceps muscle and sports activity. (4/466)The study objectives were to examine the dynamic strength of the quadriceps muscle in athletes, and investigate its association with participation in sport. The study comprised 168 active competitive non-pregnant athletes, aged 14-24 years. The dynamic strength of their quadriceps muscle was measured, and they answered a questionnaire about sports activity and occupation. The dynamic strength of the quadriceps muscle was significantly higher in men than in women, and was positively associated with body weight, years of jogging, years of soccer, and weekly hours of basketball. In conclusion, the dynamic strength of the quadriceps muscle seems to be associated with sports activity. The results suggest sport specific adaptation, which may reflect high levels of running and jumping activity. (+info)
Medical cover at Scottish football matches: have the recommendations of the Gibson Report been met? (5/466)OBJECTIVES: To determine if doctors providing medical care at Scottish football stadiums meet the standards recommended by the Gibson Report. METHODS: A postal questionnaire and telephone follow up of doctors involved with the 40 Scottish League teams. RESULTS: 47% of the doctors had not attended any relevant resuscitation courses and 72% had no training in major incident management. CONCLUSIONS: The recommendations of the Gibson Report with regard to medical cover at football stadiums have not been fully implemented in Scotland. (+info)
Development of muscle strength in relation to training level and testosterone in young male soccer players. (6/466)Isometric and functional strength of ninety-eight 11-yr-old male soccer players at an elite (E) and nonelite (NE) level were determined (3-4 times) through a 2-yr period, and the changes were related to growth and maturation. The initial isometric strength for extension with dominant leg [1,502 +/- 35 (E) vs. 1,309 +/- 39 (NE) N], extension with nondominant leg (1,438 +/- 37 vs. 1,267 +/- 45 N), extension with both legs (2,113 +/- 76 vs. 1,915 +/- 72 N), back muscles (487 +/- 11 vs. 414 +/- 10 N), abdominal muscles (320 +/- 9 vs. 294 +/- 8 N), and handgrip (304 +/- 10 vs. 259 +/- 8 N) increased by 15-40% during the period. Broad jump increased (P < 0. 05) by 15 (E) and 10% (NE). The E players had higher (P < 0.05) initial isometric strength and broad jump performance compared with NE players, and differences were maintained throughout the period (multiple ANOVA for repeated measures) also when adjustment was made for age, dimensions, testosterone, and insulin-like growth factor I (generalized estimating equations analyses). The development of strength for both E and NE players together was significantly (P < 0. 001) related to changes in serum testosterone concentrations. The present data indicate that testosterone is important for development of strength in young boys and that, independent of serum testosterone concentration, E players have developed greater muscle strength compared with NE players.

A pilot study examining injuries in elite gaelic footballers. (7/466)OBJECTIVES: To quantify injuries in elite gaelic footballers and to determine the nature, sites, and outcome of injuries and the possible risk factors involved. METHODS: Information on injuries was collected from six elite gaelic football teams by a questionnaire. The footballers were asked to recall injuries over the preceding six month period. RESULTS: A total of 88 out of 107 subjects sustained injuries over the study period. Ninety five injuries were recorded, giving an incidence rate of 1.78 injuries per subject per year, of which 35% were recurring. It was found that 35% of injuries were sustained during training sessions. Lower body injuries predominated (77%), the ankle being the most commonly injured anatomic site. Most injuries were soft tissue in nature: muscle, 33%; ligament, 32%; tendon, 16%. The most common situations giving rise to injuries were collision (22%) and twist/turn (19%). Foul play only accounted for about 6% of injuries. Mean time off play as a result of injury was 17.3 days, and hospital admission was necessary for 15% of the injuries. CONCLUSION: Despite the limitations of a retrospective of this nature, the study provides useful and important information on injuries in gaelic footballers. (+info)
Measurement of fatigue in knee flexor and extensor muscles. (8/466)In order to examine fatigue of the knee flexor and extensor muscles and to investigate the characteristics of muscular fatigue in different sports, a Cybex machine was used to measure muscle fatigue and recovery during isokinetic knee flexion and extension. Eighteen baseball players, 12 soccer players and 13 marathon runners were studied. Each subject was tested in the sitting position and made to perform 50 consecutive right knee bends and stretches at maximum strength. This was done 3 times with an interval of 10 min between each series. The peak torque to body weight ratio and the fatigue rate were determined in each case. In all subjects, the peak torque to body weight ratio was higher for extensors than flexors. Over the 3 trials, the fatigue rate of extensors showed little change, while that of flexors had a tendency to increase. In each subject, knee extensors showed a high fatigue rate but a quick recovery, while knee flexors showed a low fatigue rate but a slow recovery. As the marathon runners had the smallest fatigue rates for both flexors and extensors, we concluded that marathon runners had more stamina than baseball players and soccer players. (+info)
"Oral Health Status of the Professional Soccer Players in Thailand" by Ariya Chantaramanee
Objectives: To evaluate the oral health status of the professional soccer players in Thailand. Methods: Twenty-five Thailand professional soccer players oral conditions were examined and included in this study. DMFT, Quigley & Hein plaque index (PI), Löe & Silness gingival index, World Health Organization malocclusion index, pocket depth, TMJ examination and history of dental trauma were recorded. Results: The results demonstrated poor oral health level including dental caries (84%), DMFT score mean was 10.08, dental attrition (60%) and periodontal pocket (36%). Thirty percent of all players presented bruxism. More than 40% of athletes were bothered by their oral health with 28% reporting an impact on quality of life and 18% on training and performance. Conclusion: The oral health of Thai professional soccer players was poor that may result in negative impact on well-being, training and performance. As oral health is an important element of overall health and well-being, health promotion is required

CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that the intake of 25 g of p-EVOO was able to modulate, in postprandial time, the antioxidant profile and the expression of inflammation and of the oxidative stress-related genes, such as SOD1, USF1 and CAT. We also observed a significant reduction of MDA and oxLDL, plasma metabolites of oxidative stress. Our data show that the postprandial intake of phenols and antioxidants can reduce the inflammatory pathway and oxidative stress and therefore the risk of muscle injuries and early atherosclerosis in professional soccer players. More studies on a larger population are necessary before definitive conclusions can be draw.. ...

Western Canada Soccer League - Wikipedia
The Western Canada Soccer League was a soccer league in Canada. The league operated for eight seasons over a nine-year period from 1963 to 1971 and eventually operated across nine cities in four Canadian provinces and one American state. In the 1960s, the Western Canada Soccer League was one of four major leagues in Canadian soccer alongside the Pacific Coast League, the National Soccer League of Ontario/Quebec, and the Eastern Canada Professional Soccer League. In 1963, the league featured 10 clubs across five cities in Alberta and Saskatchewan. In 1967, the league expanded to Manitoba, thus becoming the first Canadian soccer league to operate a league schedule across three provinces. The league later added teams in British Columbia and, for one season only, a team in Washington, United States. Along with a regular season schedule that usually operated from May to August, the Molson Cup playoffs took place in August or September. Teams also participated in other competitions including ...

Research examines effect of heading in previously concussed female soccer players
Heading is such an integral part of the game that I think its important for us to know whether or not its actually dangerous based on scientific data rather than anecdotal evidence," says Tom Kaminski, professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology at the University of Delaware. Ten years ago, Kaminski began to document heading exposures in both collegiate and high school female soccer players. With a battery of neuropsychological and balance tests administered both before and after the soccer season, he found that heading did not affect short-term neurocognitive function in this pool of athletes.. But is the same true for young women who have already sustained concussions?. Neuroscience major Cameron Forbes was interested in this question as a topic for his senior thesis, and Kaminskis database proved to be a perfect source of information for him. Advised by Kaminski and Joseph Glutting, professor in UDs School of Education, Forbes conducted a study to examine ...

The Football Association medical research programme: an audit of injuries in academy youth football | British Journal of Sports...
The definition of injury used follows that of many other authors1,16,17 and includes four subdivisions of severity.18-21 The inclusion of slight injuries (up to three days out of competition and training) allows calculations to be made about injuries that are reportable under the Reporting of injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences regulations (RIDDOR).22 Reporting of injuries that prevented normal participation for less than 48 hours was deemed impractical because of the working practices of football academies.. When considering the findings of the audit, it is important to understand the academy games programme. Up to the age of 13, games are played with reduced team members-that is, seven against seven. After this age, games involving 11 against 11 are allowed. This may obviously alter the load on the players and hence affect the injury rates.. In professional football, the impact of injury on a club can be measured in terms of competitive matches missed and therefore costed against a ...
2014 FIFA World Cup Football/Soccer Thread
Okay folks, Its time to do another FIFA World Cup thread. Brazil is hosting their second FIFA World Cup in 2014, the fifth country to host two World Cups after Mexico, Italy, France and Germany.

The Effects of Hypnosis on Self-Efficacy, Affect, and Soccer Performance: A Case Study in: Journal of Clinical Sport Psychology...
This study reports the effects of a hypnosis intervention on a professional soccer player who reported low self-efficacy and a negative mood state relative to his soccer performance. Pre- and postintervention data were collected via a Soccer Self-Efficacy Questionnaire (SSEQ) that consisted of 10 items relating to good soccer performance, the Trait Sport Confidence Inventory (TSCI), the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS), and a Soccer Performance Measure (SPM). An intervention program consisting of eight hypnosis sessions was conducted. These sessions comprised the presentation of ego-strengthening suggestions. Both visual and statistical analysis revealed substantial increases in trait sport confidence, self-efficacy, positive affect, and soccer performance, as well as a substantial decrease in negative affect over the course of the intervention. The findings of this case study suggest that hypnosis can be used to enhance self-efficacy, affect, and sport performance. A number of ...
Circus Maximus: The Economic Gamble Behind Hosting the Olympics and the World Cup: The Independent Review: The Independent...
Andrew Zimbalist has written a timely and important book addressing a topic of vital importance for taxpayers, sports fans, and public officials around the world. The May 2015 indictment of a number of Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) executives by the U.S. attorney general for corruption related to the awarding of the 2010 Copa America soccer tournament and the subsequent resignation of newly reelected FIFA president Sepp Blatter highlight the seedy underside of the process of allocating sports mega-events, which Zimbalist examines in detail. The increasingly vocal opposition to Boston s bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games also provides a rich backdrop for this book. Circus Maximus is required reading for anyone interested in a thorough, no-holds-barred account of how sports mega-events are awarded and what impact these events have on host communities.. The book contains a narrative account of the awarding and hosting of the Olympic Games and FIFA World Cup since ...

Soccer Training in Sequences - Soccer Training Info
The soccer drill doesnt have to be as elaborate as this Barcelona drill. And you dont need that many players working within the drill. Plus, this is something you can work on individually. The key is just adding different skills together and then building off of them. Thats the key thing to do in soccer training sequences - which in many ways is similar to soccer patterns of play. Every top level soccer team works on sequences of play and patterns of play. Its about triangles and support from up high in the attack, at the wings and then in the back. Players have to move and make runs at the right time to offer support and keep the sequences of passes going.. The idea is to train for soccer in sequences or a series of skills since in a game youre never going to stand still and juggle or calmly knock the ball against the wall without any pressure. In a game, youre constantly doing a series of different moves or skills while youre under pressure from a defender. So it makes sense to try to ...

The Training Edge: Macro nutrition for elite soccer players
Soccer is a complicated physical and technical sport that requires multiple energy systems dominating throughout the game. A match usually last 90-95 minutes, with a 15 minute break at half time. One would assume that soccer is mostly dominated by aerobic fitness and the aerobic energy system, but it is not. Soccer consists of short bursts of speed and strength followed by a long chase or battle with opponents, all of which are performed by the anaerobic energy system.

Background: Agility in general and change-of-direction speed (CoD) in particular represent important performance determinants in elite soccer. Objectives: The objectives of this study were to determine the effects of a 6-week neuromuscular training program on agility performance, and to determine differences in movement times between the slower and faster turning directions in elite soccer players. Materials and Methods: Twenty male elite soccer players from the Stade Rennais Football Club (Ligue 1, France) participated in this study. The players were randomly assigned to a neuromuscular training group (NTG, n = 10) or an active control (CG, n = 10) according to their playing position. NTG participated in a 6-week, twice per week neuromuscular training program that included CoD, plyometric and dynamic stability exercises. Neuromuscular training replaced the regular warm-up program. Each training session lasted 30 min. CG continued their regular training program. Training volume was similar ...
Action bias among elite soccer goalkeepers: The case of penalty kicks
Downloadable (with restrictions)! In soccer penalty kicks, goalkeepers choose their action before they can clearly observe the kick direction. An analysis of 286 penalty kicks in top leagues and championships worldwide shows that given the probability distribution of kick direction, the optimal strategy for goalkeepers is to stay in the goals center. Goalkeepers, however, almost always jump right or left. We propose the following explanation for this behavior: because the norm is to jump, norm theory (Kahneman and Miller, 1986) implies that a goal scored yields worse feelings for the goalkeeper following inaction (staying in the center) than following action (jumping), leading to a bias for action. The omission bias, a bias in favor of inaction, is reversed here because the norm here is reversed - to act rather than to choose inaction. The claim that jumping is the norm is supported by a second study, a survey conducted with 32 top professional goalkeepers. The seemingly biased decision making is

Nutrients | Free Full-Text | The Effect of Carbohydrate Ingestion on Performance during a Simulated Soccer Match
Aim: This study investigated how performance was affected after soccer players, in a postprandial state, ingested a 7% carbohydrate (CHO) solution compared to a placebo (0% CHO) during a simulated soccer match. Methods: Using a double-blind placebo-controlled design, 22 trained male league soccer players (age: 24 ± 7 years, wt: 73.4 ± 12.0 kg, VO2max: 51.8 ± 4.3 mL O2/kg/min) completed two trials, separated by 7 days, during which they ingested, in random order, 700 mL of either a 7% CHO or placebo drink during a simulated soccer match. Ratings of perceived exertion (RPE), agility, timed and run to fatigue were measured during the trials. Results: Change in agility times was not altered by CHO vs. placebo ingestion (0.57 ± 1.48 vs. 0.66 ± 1.00, p = 0.81). Timed runs to fatigue were 381 ± 267 s vs. 294 ± 159 s for the CHO and placebo drinks, respectively (p = 0.11). Body mass modified the relationship between time to fatigue and drink ingestion (p = 0.02 for drink × body mass), such that lower

ISSN 1517-8692. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-86922007000300003.. INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: The association of muscular performance with risk of injury and functional performance in different sports has been reported in numerous studies in the literature. However, there is a paucity of data that characterizes the muscular performance in Brazilian professional soccer athletes. Therefore, the objective of this study was to make a descriptive analysis of parameters related to the muscular performance of this population. METHODS: The sample of this study was composed of 117 athletes belonging to professional soccer clubs in Minas Gerais State. In order to evaluate the muscular performance of the athletes, an isokinetic dynamometer was used and the tests involved maximum voluntary contractions of the selected muscles. Hip abductors and ...
Elite female footballers stories of sociocultural factors, emotions, and behaviours prior to anterior cruciate ligament injury
The aim of the study was to examine how players perceptions of sociocultural factors and intra- and interpersonal aspects of sporting experiences may have influenced the emotions, cognitions, and behaviours of elite female soccer players prior to the occurrence of ACL injuries. The research questions guiding the study were: (a) how did female elite soccer players perceive that their psychosocial experiences were related to their cognitive, physiological, and emotional states prior to their ACL injuries, and (b) how did the players feel their perceived states influenced their behaviours prior to injury occurrence. The participants consisted of the total population of female players (N = 18) competing in the Swedish womens elite league, who incurred a total ACL tear during the 2012 season. Using a semi-structured interview guide, all players were interviewed post-season. We represented the data using a storytelling approach of aggregated creative nonfiction. The aggregated stories showed ...

Weak hip extensors contribute to ankle sprains in soccer players | LERpediatrics.com
Khalil Khayambashi, PT, PhD, a professor in the Department of Sports Sciences at the University of Isfahan, implemented and oversaw the data collection for the Isfahan-USC study.. "The hip is the focal point between the heavier trunk and upper and lower extremities," Khayambashi said. "To have good balance, superior hip muscle strength is mandatory.". The Belgian authors hypothesized that the ability to attenuate impact during high-velocity maneuvers may be limited or inadequate in youth soccer players with poor hip extension strength, and that this limitation may be exacerbated under fatigued conditions.. The authors of both studies suggested hip-strengthening exercises can be integrated into soccer training programs to help reduce ankle sprain risk. Simple exercises to improve hip strength that could easily be added to soccer training programs include lunges and resistance-band exercises.. Interestingly, the findings of the two soccer studies appear to contrast with those of a 2006 AJSM study ...
Neuropsychological impairment in amateur soccer players

A landmark study funded by the charitable arm of the UK footballers union PFA and the Football Association has confirmed former professional footballers (soccer players) are much more likely to die of degenerative brain diseases compared to the general population. The University of Glasgow led FIELD study compared the causes of death of 7,676 former Scottish male professional football players who were born between 1900 and 1976 against those of more than 23,000 matched individuals from the general population.. Commenting on the findings published in the New England Journal of Medicine, lead author and consultant neuropathologist Dr Willie Stewart said former professional footballers had an approximately three and a half times higher rate of death due to neurodegenerative disease than expected. "This is the largest study to date looking in this detail at the incidence of neurodegenerative disease in any sport, not just professional footballers," he said. "This analysis revealed that risk ranged ...

The Effect of Training Experience and Leg Dominance on the Prevalence of Asymptomatic Intraarticular Changes of the Knee Joints...
Currently, no data is available regarding the association between professional experience or limb dominance and the prevalence of asymptomatic knee joint lesions in adult professional male soccer players. The prevalence of the accumulated changes increases with training experience. This is especially true for the dominant leg, which is involved in a large proportion of the athletes movements. Level 2 cross-sectional cohort study MRI was used to assess the condition of 94 knee joints in 47 adult professional male soccer players (mean age 25.7 ± 4.6 years, BMI 22.8 ± 1.4). Previous surgery on joints was an exclusion criterion. No football player had knee injuries (including fresh bruises) for at least 3 months before the examination. All the scans were performed using a 1.5T MRI scanner and a slice thickness of 3 mm. The images were blindly analyzed by two experienced radiologists. We analyzed all the three compartments of the knee joint. We consider a chondral lesion already from grade I in modified

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy: quantifying risk and clarifying pathogenesis | SpringerLink
Association football (soccer) is the most popular sport in the world, and the growing recognition that playing soccer is associated with CTE has significant public health implications. However, the health benefits of playing sport are also recognised to reduce all cause mortality, particularly from cardiovascular causes. A public health policy limiting or restricting access to contact sports, which is not carefully considered, may therefore cause more harm than good. This retrospective case control study identified former professional footballers and compared mortality outcomes with a cohort of matched controls.. 7,676 registered soccer players were recruited by searching the records of the Scottish football museum and professional soccer clubs for registered professionals. The records (name and date of birth) were then linked with the community health number (a health record number unique to each individual in Scotland) on a probabilistic basis. Former soccer players were matched to other ...
Low injury rate strongly correlates with team success in Qatari professional football | British Journal of Sports Medicine
This is the first study describing a strong correlation between lower injury incidence rate and superior team success in professional football. Previous literature on such a correlation has been inconclusive, but one study described a trend towards a better final league ranking and fewer injury days in Icelandic elite clubs.5 In a 15-season study of one French professional football team, injury rate did not correlate with team ranking.6 Ekstrand et al7 found no association between injury incidence and team success but they reported a correlation between more frequent training and higher ranking; however, they focused on amateur footballers.. The relationship of physical fitness with team as well as individual success has been more extensively proven. A study in the Norwegian elite football league demonstrated higher pre-season VO2max scores from the highest- compared with the lowest-ranking team.10 In ice hockey, aerobic capacity was related to individual on-ice performance in the US national ...

Why is the US so bad at soccer? | The Distributed Republic
Now that Team USA has emerged winless for the second time in the last three World Cups, the quadrennial gnashing of teeth has begun once again. As poorly as the team has historically performed in international competition, one fact that is overlooked is the popularity of soccer youth leagues. Id guess that at least as many kids in America, if not more, play soccer as football, baseball, or basketball. Theres a reason we have the term "soccer mom" but not "baseball mom". So why doesnt this popularity translate into success at the international level? A couple of theories:. 1) Our best athletes choose to play football and basketball, whereas the best athletes in other countries choose to play soccer. This theory assumes that sports skills are fungible. The best intramural basketball players at Virginia Tech were the varsity football players (the varsity basketball players werent allowed to compete in the intramural leagues). While this might be true for basketball and football, I believe that ...

A matter of life and death: population mortality and football results | Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health
We have found an association between the outcome of football matches and deaths from circulatory disease, for men but not women. The association relates to all competitive games played by the local professional football team over a five year period. It extends the observation of Witte et al5 that male mortality increased after a single important international match involving Holland, and allows for possible distortion by the effects of differential death rates by day of the week and month of the year.. We selected the four health authority areas because of the characteristics of the local professional football club. They are the largest clubs in this health region, and the only ones that spent the whole study period within the top two levels of professional football. In each case, the great majority of the football support within the population covered by the local health authority goes to that club. The effect was seen consistently in each area studied and, although the observed increase ...

Identifying Athlete Body Fluid Changes During a Competitive Season With Bioelectrical Impedance Vector Analysis in:...
Purpose: To analyze the association between body fluid changes evaluated by bioelectrical impedance vector analysis and dilution techniques over a competitive season in athletes. Methods: A total of 58 athletes of both sexes (men: age 18.7 [4.0] y and women: age 19.2 [6.0] y) engaging in different sports were evaluated at the beginning (pre) and 6 months after (post) the competitive season. Deuterium dilution and bromide dilution were used as the criterion methods to assess total body water (TBW) and extracellular water (ECW), respectively; intracellular water (ICW) was calculated as TBW-ECW. Bioelectrical resistance and reactance were obtained with a phase-sensitive 50-kHz bioelectrical impedance analysis device; bioelectrical impedance vector analysis was applied. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry was used to assess fat mass and fat-free mass. The athletes were empirically classified considering TBW change (pre-post, increase or decrease) according to sex. Results: Significant mean vector ...

Organic farm wins out over soccer fields - The Washington Post
Organic farm wins out over soccer fields by Bill Turque The Battle of Brickyard Road appears to be over, at least for the moment. Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett announced Tuesday that he has abandoned plans to convert a popular Potomac organic farm operated for the last 30 years by Nick Maravell to soccer fields. The county leased the land from the Montgomery County School Board - owner of the 20-acre property - in 2011 with the idea of sub-leasing it Montgomery Soccer Inc., a private sports organization. The decision produced two lawsuits from neighbors - one asserting that the school board acted without transparancy to lease the property to the county, and the other opposed to soccer fields. In a letter to the board, Leggett announced without elaboration that the county was surrendering the lease. The board voted at a special meeting Tuesday evening to cancel its lease with the county. The land remains property of the board and is considered a possible future site for a school. turqueb

Boo ya! And ever since that first flurry of kicks, roughly 3 months ago, hes constantly dribbling the soccer ball. Dribbling. Is that what its called? I know thats what you call bouncing a basketball to move it down court, but is it the same for soccer? I could Google it but Im terrified that soccer related ads will start showing up in my email and newsfeed. Id rather Google "animal with largest testicles" or "is human pancreas edible" or "am I secretly a woman trapped in a mans body? than have soccer related marketing target me. Thats my level of disdain for soccer.. Youre probably wondering why I hate soccer worse than Donald Trump hates well, everyone. First off, I played one season of soccer back in elementary school and I sucked at it. I know, I know, its hard to believe there was ever anything at which I did not excel. That should be proof enough that soccer is a ridiculous activity. If I wasnt good at it then, by default, it must actually be the thing itself that sucks, because ...

Editorials: New Challenges in Assessing and Managing Concussion in Sports - American Family Physician
In a recent AFP article on sideline management of head and neck injuries, Dr. White-side correctly stated that there is no general agreement on clinical markers of concussion severity or on the appropriate management of concussions.1 However, experts have provided physicians with consensus guidelines to try to standardize the approach to sports concussion. These recommendations continue to evolve. Two recent consensus statements have garnered much attention in the sports medicine community because they present significant departures from current concussion management guidelines.2-4 One statement was a report from the First International Conference on Concussion in Sport, held in Vienna, Austria, in 2001,5 and the other was a report from the Second International Conference on Concussion in Sport, held in Prague, Czech Republic, in 2004.6 These conferences were organized by the International Ice Hockey Federation, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, and the International ...
