Natural sporting ability and predisposition to cardiovascular disorders. (1/1605)

We tested the hypothesis that people with a natural ability in 'power sports' (a presumed marker for predominance of type 2, glycolytic muscle fibres) might have increased risks of coronary heart disease (CHD) compared to those with a natural ability in 'endurance sports' (as a marker for predominance of type 1, oxidative muscle fibres). We examined subsequent cardiovascular disorders retrospectively in 231 male former soldiers, aged 34-87 years, who had undergone a course in physical training in the Army School of Physical Training, Aldershot, UK, who assessed themselves as having natural ability in either power (n = 107) or endurance (n = 124) sports. The proportion with CHD, defined as angina and/or coronary angioplasty and/or coronary artery bypass graft and/or heart attack was 18.7% in the 'power group' vs. 9.7% in the 'endurance group' (difference: chi 2 = 3.9, p = 0.05). The proportions with CHD and/or risk factors rose to 39.3% in the 'power group' vs. 25.8% in the 'endurance group' (difference: chi 2 = 4.8, p = 0.03). Under logistic regression analysis, compared to the 'endurance group', the 'power group' had 2.2 (95% CI: 1.00-4.63) the risk of developing CHD, and 1.86 (95% confidence interval: 1.06 to 3.25) the risk of developing CHD and/or risk factors. Men with a natural ability in 'power sports' are at increased risk of developing cardiovascular disorders, compared to men with a natural ability in 'endurance sports'. A predominance of type 2, glycolytic muscle fibres, presumably of genetic origin, may predispose to cardiovascular disorders.  (+info)

Cardiovascular and metabolic adaptations in horses competing in cross-country events. (2/1605)

The cardiovascular and metabolic response to two cross-country events (CC*: preliminary level and CC*** advanced level) were analysed in 8 male eventing horses (4 Anglo-Hunter and 4 Anglo-Arabian). This study focused on the establishment of the main metabolic pathways involved in the muscle energy resynthesis during the competitions. Heart rate (HR) was recorded throughout the CC events. Jugular venous blood samples were withdrawn before the warm-up period, immediately after the competitions and at 5 and 10 min in the recuperation period. The following haematological parameters were studied: red blood cells (RBC), packed cell volume (PCV), haemoglobin concentration (Hb), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC), white blood cells (WBC), and number and percentages of lymphocytes (LYM) and granulocytes and monocytes (GRAN). One fraction of blood was centrifuged and, in plasma, lactate (LA), total plasma protein (TPP) and the rate of LA disappearance were determined. The competitions induced significant increases in RBC, Hb, PCV, MCV and TPP. Plasma LA response exceeded the anaerobic threshold of 4 mmol/l, reaching a maximum level of 13.3 mmol/l. HR ranged from 140 to more than 200 bpm, peaking at 230 bpm, revealing a limitation in the oxygen supply to the working muscles. It was concluded that muscle energy resynthesis during a CC event is provided both through oxidative processes and glycolysis with LA formation. Therefore, both stamina and power exercises are required for eventing horses.  (+info)

Should a history section be included on the National Youth Sports Program preparticipation physical examination? (3/1605)

The National Youth Sports Program (NYSP) is an annual event sponsored by the National Collegiate Athletic Association that provides structured sports and enrichment programs to youth of low socioeconomic status. As part of the program, youths undergo a free medical examination that uses a physical examination checklist but does not include a section on medical history. To determine what additional information a medical history would provide, a history form was used in conjunction with the regular preparticipation examination for participants in the 1996 NYSP at the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. The history form provided information such as family history of sudden death, personal history of asthma or bone injury, and whether participants took medications or used corrective lenses. Seventy-nine percent of the completed history forms documented a positive response to at least one question. Of these, only 5% had physical findings on examination. Conversely, 15% of participants had physical findings that were not reported on the history form. Because much of what is discovered by a medical history often is not found on physical examination and because history information can be used to prevent the occurrence of an accident or illness, this study suggests that the use of such a form is beneficial in providing a more comprehensive screening.  (+info)

A physiological evaluation of professional soccer players. (4/1605)

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.  (+info)

We used 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose and positron emission tomography combined with the euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp technique to compare the ability of insulin to stimulate myocardial, skeletal muscle, and whole body glucose uptake between weight lifters (n = 8), endurance athletes (n = 8), and sedentary men (n = 9). Maximal aerobic power (ml. kg- 1. min- 1) was higher in the endurance athletes (71 +/- 2, P < 0.001) than the weight lifters (42 +/- 2) and the sedentary men (42 +/- 2). Skeletal muscle glucose uptake (micromol. kg muscle- 1. min- 1) was enhanced in the endurance athletes (125 +/- 16, P < 0.01) but was similar in weight lifters (59 +/- 12) and sedentary (63 +/- 7) men. The rate of glucose uptake per unit mass of myocardium (micromol. kg- 1. min- 1) was similarly decreased in endurance athletes (544 +/- 50) and weight lifters (651 +/- 45) compared with sedentary men (1,041 +/- 78, P < 0.001 vs. endurance athletes and weight lifters). Both groups of athletes had increased left ventricular mass. Consequently, total left ventricular glucose uptake was comparable in all groups. These data demonstrate that aerobic but not resistance training is associated with enhanced insulin sensitivity in skeletal muscle. Despite this, cardiac changes are remarkably similar in weight lifters and endurance athletes and are characterized by an increase in left ventricular mass and diminished insulin-stimulated glucose uptake per heart mass.  (+info)

Incidence and causes of tenosynovitis of the wrist extensors in long distance paddle canoeists. (6/1605)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the incidence and causes of acute tenosynovitis of the forearm of long distance canoeists. METHOD: A systematic sample of canoeists competing in four canoe marathons were interviewed. The interview included questions about the presence and severity of pain in the forearm and average training distances. Features of the paddles and canoes were determined. RESULTS: An average of 23% of the competitors in each race developed this condition. The incidence was significantly higher in the dominant than the nondominant hand but was unrelated to the type of canoe and the angle of the paddle blades. Canoeists who covered more than 100 km a week for eight weeks preceding the race had a significantly lower incidence of tenosynovitis than those who trained less. Environmental conditions during racing, including fast flowing water, high winds, and choppy waters, and the paddling techniques, especially hyperextension of the wrist during the pushing phase of the stroke, were both related to the incidence of tenosynovitis. CONCLUSION: Tenosynovitis is a common injury in long distance canoeists. The study suggests that development of tenosynovitis is not related to the equipment used, but is probably caused by difficult paddling conditions, in particular uneven surface conditions, which may cause an altered paddling style. However, a number of factors can affect canoeing style. Level of fitness and the ability to balance even a less stable canoe, thereby maintaining optimum paddling style without repeated eccentric loading of the forearm tendons to limit hyperextension of the wrist, would seem to be important.  (+info)

Dynamic strength of the quadriceps muscle and sports activity. (7/1605)

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)

Effects of physical and sporting activities on balance control in elderly people. (8/1605)

OBJECTIVE: Balance disorders increase with aging and raise the risk of accidental falls in the elderly. It has been suggested that the practice of physical and sporting activities (PSA) efficiently counteracts these age related disorders, reducing the risk of falling significantly. METHODS: This study, principally based on a period during which the subjects were engaged in PSA, included 65 healthy subjects, aged over 60, who were living at home. Three series of posturographic tests (static, dynamic with a single and fast upward tilt, and dynamic with slow sinusoidal oscillations) analysing the centre of foot pressure displacements or electromyographic responses were conducted to determine the effects of PSA practice on balance control. RESULTS: The major variables of postural control were best in subjects who had always practised PSA (AA group). Those who did not take part in PSA at all (II group) had the worst postural performances, whatever the test. Subjects having lately begun PSA practice (IA group) had good postural performances, close to those of the AA group, whereas the subjects who had stopped the practice of PSA at an early age (AI group) did not perform as well. Overall, the postural control in the group studied decreased in the order AA > IA > AI > II. CONCLUSIONS: The period during which PSA are practised seems to be of major importance, having a positive bearing on postural control. It seems that recent periods of practice have greater beneficial effects on the subject's postural stability than PSA practice only at an early age. These data are compatible with the fact that PSA are extremely useful for elderly people even if it has not been a lifelong habit.  (+info)

Background: We measured blood alcohol content (BAC) levels of attendees at professional sporting events and assessed the factors associated with higher BACs.. Methods: We conducted BAC tests of 362 adult attendees following 13 baseball games and three football games. We ran multivariate analyses to obtain factors associated with the risk of having a higher BAC.. Results: In this assessment, 40% of the participants had a positive BAC, ranging from 0.005 to 0.217. Those who reported tailgating before the event had 14 times the odds of having a BAC , 0.08 and those under age 35 had nearly 8 times the odds of having a BAC , 0.08 (both compared to a zero BAC). Attendees of Monday night football games were more likely to have positive BACs compared to attendees at all other games.. Conclusions: We found that it is feasible to assess BAC levels of attendees at professional sporting events. Our findings suggest that a significant number of attendees at professional sporting events may have elevated BAC ...

A parimutuel betting game based on events unfolding during a determinate sporting event, such as a trivia game, a principal objective being to acquire the largest number of betting tokens by the end of the sporting event. Participants are asked a plurality of questions, each question being a betting event. One or more betting lines are opened in each betting event. Players are allowed to bet tokens on an open betting line until it is closed by the administrator. Once a line is closed, a new line opens within the betting event. When a termination event occurs for a given betting event, the betting event is terminated and all lines are paid off in parimutuel style. Payoffs may be made in a hierarchical manner, such that players placing riskier bets in a betting line receive a higher parimutuel style payoff. The game may be played over the Internet.

Participation in a sport is widely considered a valuable form of physical activity, especially for children and adolescents. In addition, many think that sport participation translates to future physical activity. However, limited research has examined the ability of youth sport to significantly contribute to meeting daily physical activity guidelines (60 min/day of moderate to vigorous physical activity) and whether the physical activity behaviors of youth sport participants will translate into future, habitual activity in both the short and the long term. In this paper, available research on the role of youth sport in the promotion of physical activity is evaluated. Two major questions are used to frame the discussion: How much physical activity do youth sport participants attain during games and practices, and does sport participation during childhood and adolescence translate into habitual physical activity in adulthood? This is followed by ideas for future research and preliminary ...
The government has announced that a small number of sporting events will be used to pilot the safe return of spectators through late July and early August - with a view to reopening competition venues for sports fans, with social distancing measures in place, from October 2020.. The events have been carefully selected to represent a range of sports and indoor and outdoor spectator environments.. They are expected to include two mens county cricket friendly matches - such as Surrey v Middlesex at The Oval on 26-27 July - the World Snooker Championship at Sheffields Crucible Theatre from 31 July, and the Glorious Goodwood horse racing festival on 1 August. There are also likely to be further pilot events for other sports, in order to build up to and prepare for the full, socially distanced return of sporting events from 1 October 2020.. The pilot events will provide the opportunity to stress-test the Governments stage five guidance, on the return of fans to elite sports events.. The guidance ...
In a wide-ranging SmartTeamTMTalk, Dr. Jim MacDonald, a clinical professor at Ohio State and pediatric sports medicine specialist at Nationwide Childrens Hospital, urges a comprehensive approach to preventing youth sports injuries based on three proven public health strategies: (1) thinking like Sweden in setting as a goal zero youth sports injuries; (2) encouraging greater use of personal protective equipment shown to reduce injury risk, including properly fitted and maintained helmets, and the wearing of mouthguards and goggles in a wide range of sports; and (3) recognizing that education is not enough to change the cultural and physical environment of youth sports, but requires active implementation of sports safety best practices, including more certified athletic trainers, not just in high school sports but at the middle school and youth level; doing a better job of getting high school and youth coaches to buy into injury prevention, and through programs such as MomsTEAM Institutes ...
Exercise causes alterations in redox homeostasis (ARH). Measuring ARH in elite athletes may aid in the identification of training tolerance, fatigued states, and underperformance. To the best of our knowledge, no studies have examined ARH in elite male and female distance runners at sea level. The monitoring of ARH in athletes is hindered by a lack of reliable and repeatable in-the-field testing tools and by the rapid turnaround of results. We examined the effects of various exercise intensities on ARH in healthy (non-over-reached) elite male and female endurance athletes using clinical point-of-care (POC) redox tests, referred to as the free oxygen radical test (FORT) (pro-oxidant) and the free oxygen radical defence (FORD) (antioxidant). Elite male and female endurance athletes (n = 22) completed a discontinuous incremental treadmill protocol at submaximal running speeds and a test to exhaustion. Redox measures were analyzed via blood sampling at rest, warm-up, submaximal exercise, exhaustion, ...
Handball performance is influenced by age, anthropometric characteristics, technical skills, tactical understanding, and physical abilities. The aims of this study were (i) to determine differences in anthropometric characteristics and physical performance between adolescent handball players across age categories, and (ii) to determine which anthropometric and maturity variables have the greatest relative importance in fitness for this sport. Seventy-nine male handball players drawn from a team in the elite Tunisian Handball league [U18 (n = 10); U17 (n = 12); U16 (n = 17); U15 (n = 18); and U14 (n = 22)] volunteered for the investigation. Assessments included sprint performances; change in direction tests (T-half test and Illinois modified test); jumping tests (squat jump; counter movement jump; countermovement jump with aimed arms; five-jump test); medicine ball throwing; handgrip force; back extensor force and selected anthropometric measurements. The individuals age category affected all
Handball is a team sport played by two male or female teams consisting of seven players (6 fielders and 1 goalie) each. The players are allowed to handle and throw the ball using their hands, but they must not touch the ball with their feet. The objective of the game is to score and avoid getting goals. The team that scores more goals in a given period of time wins the match. The game is played at a very high speed and body contact is permitted. As a result, Fair Play has a central importance. Basic handball is either played in a sports hall or outdoors on a 40x20 meter court.The other variations of the game such as Minihandball, Beach Handball or Streethandball are all based on the fundamental rules of the game, although both facilities and rules shall be adapted to their needs. The European Handball Federation (EHF) has published a great number of leaflets, booklets or other publications on the so-called Handball Basics over the past years. Here are some of them to be viewed as e-books in ...
The results show that hypertrophic cardiomyopathy was an uncommon cause of death in these young competitive athletes and suggest that the identification and disqualification of affected athletes at screening before participation in competitive sports may have prevented sudden death.
As the baby boomers age, yet often desire to keep an active and athletic lifestyle, the number of cases of painful osteoarthritis in joints such as the hip and knee, have escalated. As a result, more and younger people are demanding joint replacements throughout the US and in Europe, in an effort to keep the same lifestyle.. There are many benefits of athletic activity following total joint replacements, but also risks such as repetitive loading and wear of the joint causing loosening of the implant, or in the more acute stage fractures surrounding the prosthesis. Therefore, high impact activities are typically recommended against.. Several studies have shown no negative effects on total hip replacements after athletic participation, even at 10-year-follow-up, and have even shown lower rates of loosening of the implant, compared to sedentary people. Proponents of athletics after hip replacement argue that exercise induced loading of bone and increased muscle coordination, endurance and strength ...
Sickle cell trait (SCT), in which a normal hemoglobin gene and an abnormal mutated β-globin sickle gene (HbS) are inherited, occurs in 8% of blacks in the United States (0.08% of nonblacks).1,2 SCT has been regarded as a benign condition that generally does not expose affected people to health risks, although for many years it has also been recognized as a potential cause of death in military training recruits during vigorous and intense physical exertion.3 More recently, evidence has been assembled proposing SCT as a cause of sudden death in competitive athletes, usually during training and conditioning.4,5 In 2010, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) mandated SCT screening (with solubility testing) for all student-athletes in division I sports (division II, 2012; division III, 2013). In addition, all newborns have been routinely tested for SCT shortly after birth since 1987 in accordance with a National Institutes of Health recommendation.1,6 Much of the controversy regarding ...

Discussion. The aim of the study was to examine the relationship between athletes satisfaction and role ambiguity among team handball players. It was predicted that role ambiguity would have a negative relationship to the satisfaction dimensions and that Scope of Responsibilities was the most prominent manifestation of role ambiguity related to the dimensions (subscales) of athlete satisfaction.. First, the reliability estimates showed that after the exemption of four items, which were removed from the analysis on the ambiguity instrument, all factors from both questionnaires had good internal consistency. The exclusion of the items significantly improved the internal reliability of the factors. It should be noted that only these items had negative wording, whereas the other items of the questionnaire had positive wording. There is evidence suggesting that item wording may influence the results of a study (Spector, Van Katwyk, & Brannick, 1997; Brown, 2003; Tsiggilis, Masmnidis, & Koustelios, ...

Participation in school sports may be, for many students, as important as the degree of success attained in the classroom. This study investigated the relationships between academic achievement, athletic achievement, self-concept, locus of control, and achievement motivation. The Tennessee Self Concept Scale, Locus of Control Scale for Children, Achievement-Related Affect Scale, and Measure of Achievement Motivation were administered to 130 male and 59 female urban high school students. Of these, 79 participated in school sports and were called school sport participants, while the remaining 110 did not and were termed school sport nonparticipants. Academic achievement was defined as the students grade point averages, and athletic achievement was assessed by a newly developed 31-item scale in which coaches rated the school sport participants. Academic achievement and athletic achievement were not significantly associated, but athletic achievement was positively related to self-concept (p $|$.03). School
The world keeps changing, and modern young athletes would appreciate a few changes to the game choices they have at their disposal while taking part in the Olympics. In fact, in line with the Olympic Agenda 2020, the events need to have new and upcoming games that will appeal to modern young athletes.. Of note are four particular sports that will be part of the Youth Olympic Games program during the Japanese installation of this world-famous sporting event. Not to be left behind by this sweeping trend, Latino athletes are preparing themselves to shine at these new sports.. 4 Sports Making their Youth Olympic Games Debut. 1. Karate Karate will now be in the Youth Olympics, and it is poised to be a huge hit.

Purpose: We tested the hypothesis that participation in small-sided team handball training could provide beneficial effects on cardiovascular and metabolic parameters in overweight premenopausal women with special focus on the importance of prior team handball experience.. Methods: A 16-week RCT training intervention was conducted in overweight premenopausal women randomized into three groups; a team handball training group without prior experience (UN; n=13), a team handball group with prior experience (EXP; n=10), and an inactive control group (CON; n=9). Both UN and EXP completed 1.6±0.3 training sessions per week with average heart rates of 84±5 and 85±9% of maximal heart rate, respectively. Cardiovascular and metabolic parameters were assessed before and after the intervention.. Results: Compared to CON, UN had significant increases in VO2max (7±4%) and intermittent endurance performance (26±14%) as well as reduced total fat mass (4±6%), total fat percentage (4±5%) and android fat ...
Challenging the interests of para-sport is the threat of one sided and predictable competition, in which the least impaired athlete always wins. To prevent this, para-athletes are placed in categories for competition based on their impairment, these are called sport classes. The IPC classification system determines which athletes are eligible to compete in a sport and how athletes are grouped together for competition. This, to a certain extent, is similar to grouping athletes by age, gender or weight.. In para-sport, athletes are grouped by the degree of activity limitation resulting from the impairment. Different sports require athletes to perform different activities, such as: sprinting, propelling a wheelchair, rowing and shooting. As sports require different activities, the impact of the impairment on each sport also differs. Therefore, for classification to minimise the impact of impairment on sport performance, classification must be sport specific.. Three steps of Classification. Athletes ...

Outbreaks of community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA) occur in various populations, including children attending child care, prison inmates, and men who have sex with men (1--3). This report demonstrates that CA-MRSA has the potential to spread and cause outbreaks among players of competitive sports, including those sports that involve little skin-to-skin contact among players, such as fencing. Physicians should be aware of the potential for MRSA infections in sports participants when evaluating patients and making treatment decisions. As demonstrated by this cluster of MRSA infections among fencers, patients with recurrent MRSA infections might make multiple health-care visits before a wound culture is obtained. Recurrence of infections might be avoided if physicians obtain cultures more routinely when athletes have infected wounds. Transmission of S. aureus, for both susceptible and antimicrobial resistant strains, usually occurs through close contact with a person who has either a draining lesion ...
Adolescent sport participants, particularly girls, continue to drop out of sport at alarmingly high rates, which presents an opportunity for new sport programs to enter the marketplace to better cater to those participants. Starting new sport programs, however, presents significant challenges, including acquiring and mobilizing resources in innovative ways. Using theory in sport development and the resource-based view, the authors examined six emergent sport programs for girls within the United States and United Kingdom to identify the resources obtained and mobilized to create new and distinctive sport opportunities in a crowded marketplace. Following a case study approach, data from site visits and interviews with 137 individuals were analyzed using within- and across-case analysis. The findings reveal the resources needed to grow the programs, the ways in which those resources are attained, and strategies to mobilize resource bundles to maximize sport opportunities by differentiating programs ...

But UW does not have a womens sports team thats proportionately equal to mens football, Gawlik explained. If UW were to correct the differences in male and female sports financial aid to be proportionate to one another, UW would need to add six womens sports teams. But the additional womens teams wouldnt match the proportionality of male and female athletes - there would be too many women, Gawlik said. We dont match it because we dont believe as an institution that [a proportional] prong is feasible to what we are trying to do, she said. Coaches are also never limited to the amount of in-state and out-of-state students they can recruit. Coaches are allowed to use the maximum amount of scholarships delegated by the NCAA to recruit students, Gawlik said. Gawlik explained some sports may need to attract more out-of-state students and therefore spend more money on recruitment. For a sport like volleyball, UWs coach may stay closer to Wisconsin and recruit students from the volleyball ...

Not every athlete attending the Olympic games gets the opportunity to stand on the winners podium. After years and years of dedication, training, and hard work, only the most elite athletes enjoy the luxury of taking a medal home. The medal represents more than just the metallic element handed out. It represents the fruit of labour and sacrifice it took to achieve success. Many athletes pass their medals down to their families as a heirloom. Piotr Małachowski from Poland won the silver medal at the Summer Olympics in Rio in discus throw. Instead of keeping the award to himself, the man chose to auction it after he received an email from a woman in his native country asking for his help. The stranger asked the Olympian to help her raise money for her son who is in desperate need of a retinoblastoma procedure in New York. ...
HOLLAND -- Dr. R. Richard Ray Jr. of the Hope College faculty has been chosen to receive the National Athletic Trainers Associations highest honor for an athletic training educator.
Introduction. Baron Pierre de Coubertin had an ideal of bringing people together through sport. Does this ideal still exist in the Olympics? I believe this is both a true comment and a false comment. The fact that people are brought together through sport especially like the Olympics is true. The event does bring a mass of viewers around the world through TV and other commercial use and every 4 years there always seems to be a new face in the form of a country competing with the top countries in the so called biggest sporting event in the world. With this Baron Pierre de Coubertins ideal worked then or did it? When the modern Olympics were finally realised in 1986 on the 5th of April. Baron Pierre De Coubertin has made a remarkable achievement he managed to bring 13 nations together to compete against each other in nine different sports from four of the worlds continents at a time when travel and communications were often difficult. more. Middle. The 1936 Olympics is a great example ...
Downloadable! This paper investigates how students collegiate athletic participation affects their subsequent labor market success. It uses newly developed distributional tests to establish that the wage distribution of former college athletes is significantly different from non-athletes and that athletic participation is a significant determinant of wages. Additionally, by using newly developed techniques in nonparametric regression, it shows that on average former college athletes earn a wage premium. However, the premium is not uniform, but skewed so that more than half the athletes actually earn less than non-athletes. Further, the premium is not uniform across occupations. Athletes earn more in the fields of business, military, and manual labor, but surprisingly, athletes are more likely to become high school teachers, which pays a relatively lower wage to athletes. We conclude that nonpecuniary factors play an important role in occupational choice, at least for many former collegiate athletes.
It has been proposed that high exercise loads increase the risk of infection, most frequently reported as upper respiratory tract infections, by suppressing the immune system. Most athletes will not train when experiencing sickness due to the fear of health complications. However, high training volumes are incompatible with high rates of non-training days, regardless of the cause. The purpose of this observational study was to examine the relationship between self-reported, exercise-constraining days of sickness (days when the athlete decided not to train due to symptoms of disease, either self-reported or by a physician) and the volumes of exercise training in elite endurance athletes by analyzing data from training logs kept for several years. The subjects included 11 elite endurance athletes (8 male, 3 female) competing at national and international levels in cross-country skiing, biathlon and long-distance running. Training logs available from these 11 subjects added to a total of 61 ...

OBJECTIVES:. To describe the incidence of injury in the precompetition and competition periods of the Rio 2016 Summer Paralympic Games.. METHODS:. A total of 3657 athletes from 78 countries, representing 83.4% of all athletes at the Games, were monitored on the web-based injury and illness surveillance system over 51 198 athlete days during the Rio 2016 Summer Paralympic Games. Injury data were obtained daily from teams with their own medical support.. RESULTS:. A total of 510 injuries were reported during the 14-day Games period, with an injury incidence rate (IR) of 10.0 injuries per 1000 athlete days (12.1% of all athletes surveyed). The highest IRs were reported for football 5-a-side (22.5), judo (15.5) and football 7-a-side (15.3) compared with other sports (p,0.05). Precompetition injuries were significantly higher than in the competition period (risk ratio: 1.40, p,0.05), and acute traumatic injuries were the most common injuries at the Games (IR of 5.5).

The genetic profile that is needed to define an endurance athlete has been studied during recent years. The main objective of this work is to approach for the first time the study of genetic variants in liver-metabolizing genes and their role in endurance performance by comparing the allelic and genotypic frequencies in elite endurance athletes to the non-athlete population. Genotypic and allelic frequencies were determined in 123 elite endurance athletes (75 professional road cyclists and 48 endurance elite runners) and 122 male non-athlete subjects (sedentary). Genotyping of cytochrome P450 family 2 subfamily D member 6 (CYP2D6 rs3892097), glutathione-S transferase mu isoform 1 (GSTM1), glutathione S-transferase pi (GSTP rs1695) and glutathione S-transferase theta (GSTT) genes was performed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

South Africa was excluded from the 1964 Tokyo and 1968 Mexico City Olympic Games over their governments apartheid policies, before being finally expelled from the Olympic Movement in 1970. In contrast, South Africa first competed in the International Stoke Mandeville Games, which in an Olympic year became known as the Paralympic Games, in 1962. South Africa continued to compete until 1985 (although they had been excluded from both the 1980 and 1984 Paralympic Games) when they were finally expelled from the movement despite having competed with a racially integrated team since 1975. This article looks at some of the events and issues, particularly the influence of international politics, which led to their exclusion and eventual expulsion from the disability sports movement, despite the claims by both the South African team and the organizers of international disability sport that the fully racially integrated team was challenging apartheid by setting an example for others to follow.

The profession of Athletic Training sometimes requires the certified athletic trainer to work more than 40 hours per week. This fact is true of most salaried professionals. In addition, those athletic trainers working with athletic teams or other sporting events many times work weekends and/or evenings. It is not the intention, nor should it be the practice, to make time demands on the athletic training student that approach those of the certified athletic trainer. The Purdue University Athletic Training Program does, though, want the athletic training student to understand the responsibilities and obligations of the career, i.e., what its really like to work as an athletic trainer.. To that end, we will expect the athletic training student to participate with their preceptor in the care and treatment of student-athletes assigned to that preceptor. That expectation may include clinical experiences that occur prior to 8:00 am, after 5:00 pm in the evening, or on the weekends. It is not the ...

Corrado et al. have published an ESC consensus document on the screening of athletes for competitive sports.[1] Besides a good medical history and examination, a 12 lead ECG is also part of the screening. They have set up special ECG criteria for participants in competitive sports (table 1). If one of the described findings are present on the ECG, the ECG is considered positive and further evaluation is mandatory which can include echocardiography, 24-h ambulatory Holter monitoring, and exercise testing. ECG Features of cardiac diseases detectable at pre-participation screening in young competitive athletes are shown in table 2. Prevalence of ECG abnormalities in competitive athletes has been studied by Pellicia et al.[2](see table below). ECG abnormalities in their study increased with age and level of exercise. In young amateur athletes they found ECG abnormalities in about 7%, a number that rose to 40% in adult elite athletes. Especially RBBB and left ventricular hypertrophy were often ...

by Taylor De Lench of © 2008-2010. The new H1N1 swine flu virus has garnered a lot of attention from the media recently, especially now that school is back in session and the regular flu season has started. Influenza outbreaks are more likely in areas of high foot traffic and dense population. The H1N1 strain, unlike the common flu, seems to prey on the young, who have not acquired the antibodies during previous pandemics, affecting them more than older people. For these reasons, schools have been recognized as potential hot spots for outbreaks. In particular, school sports teams, are of high risk due to the close physical contact of teammates on the fields and on the bus.. Schools nationwide are already experiencing outbreaks: 37 players on Stillman Colleges football team contracted swine flu. Tulane and Duke have experienced similar infection rates on their football teams. 122 students at Camden County High School in Georgia fell ill to the virus as ...

ARVC remains an important diagnosis to consider in U.S. athletes but is less common. It is not clear whether the higher rate of ARVC-related SCD in international populations reflects a higher prevalence of this disease, exclusion of athletes with alternative diagnoses (i.e., HCM) due to systematic preparticipation screening in other countries, or under-recognition of ARVC in the U.S. athlete population.. Preparticipation Screening. Though SCD is rare, its occurrence in athletes who are often young and presumably healthy has a large emotional and social impact on the community. Therefore, considerable effort has been made to better understand the causes of SCD in athletes and to discover optimal strategies for prevention.. Intense athletic activity can trigger SCD or disease progression in these susceptible individuals. Prescreening competitive athletes can improve detection of cardiac abnormalities and minimize the risks associated with athletic participation.. All preparticipation screening ...
Ukraines team of 19 athletes will be hoping to build on this phenomenal progress at the coming Vancouver Paralympics, which are due to start in early March. The transformation of Ukraines paralympic team into one of the world leaders in this inspirational sphere is partly down to the super human efforts of one man - National Paralympic Committee Head Valeriy Shushkevich, who has been at the helm of physically disadvantaged sport in Ukraine since 1996 and is himself a champion disabled athlete. Mr. Shushkevich was in Lviv regions Carpathian Mountains recently to mark the opening of a new training facility and sports centre designed for use by Ukraines paralympic athletes.

This systematic review has evaluated the evidence on the relationship between participation in the most common sports in England and OA. Across all studies, the relationship between sports participation and OA was equivocal. The results suggested an increased risk of OA for those who participate at the elite level. This is most notably in soccer and athletes, with the exception of long-distance/middle-distance running, compared with non-elite sports participants (p,0.001). The majority of studies in elite sports demonstrated an association between sports participants and risk of OA. In previous reviews, sporting activities have been associated with hip and knee OA, although elite sporting participation has not been separately studied.5 ,8 ,9 Interestingly, the analyses suggest that the risk of OA may be associated with the type of sport. Indeed, the majority of studies involving soccer demonstrated that there was a positive association with OA, where all the studies involving non-elite soccer ...
National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) officials, university leaders, and former student athletes testified at a Senate Commerce Committee hearing on college athlete compensation. Among the witnesses were NCAA Board of Governors Chair Michael Drake, University of Mississippi Intercollegiate Athletics Vice Chancellor Keith Carter, former NFL Players Association President Eric Winston, and Southeastern Conference (SEC) Commissioner Greg Sankey. They discussed the potential benefits and challenges of permitting student athletes to benefit financially from the use of their name, image, and likeness, also known as NIL. They also talked about the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic on college sports as well as the impact of a compensation model on female athletes, college athletic departments, and non-revenue generating sports.
Large quantities of data have described left ventricular adaptation to endurance training, but basic concepts on left ventricular performance during exercise remain controversial. In this thesis, we present the results of studies of left ventricular dynamics during exercise in 89 endurance-trained athletes.. Using radionuclide ventriculography, 35 female and 30 male endurance athletes were studied in supine position. During supine exercise at 70% of the age-expected maximal heart rate, the adjustments in left ventricular volumes were small, suggesting a high preload before exercise. Stroke volume increased by changes in the left ventricular end-diastolic volumes but no changes were observed in the end-systolic volumes. Moreover, no significant differences were noted between male and female athletes.. Contrast echocardiography was utilized when 24 male endurance athletes were studied during upright exercise. An almost linear increase in stroke volume was seen from upright rest to upright exercise ...

Not to be confused with the annual Special Olympics, another amazing set of events, the Paralympic Games are an event held every four years in coordination with the Olympics.. The focus of the Paralympics isnt the disabilities or challenges of the athletes, but rather the training, hard work, and skill necessary to compete in this prestigious event.. Since 1960, the Paralympics have run in-sync with the Olympics, held in the same city, immediately following both the Summer and Winter games.. The Paralympics began as a small gathering of injured British WWII veterans in 1948 but grew over time to become one of the largest international sporting events in the world.

Background: Research have suggested that endurance female athletes tend to have lower bone mineral density (BMD) than power and strength athletes, as a result of maintaining low body weight in addition to perform. This study intends to investigate the association between physical fitness by power and endurance measurements, body composition and BMD. In addition, it will address the differences in BMD measured in female football players, handball players and cross-country skiers.. Methods: A cross-sectional study of 57 Norwegian female athletes aged between 18 and 36 years (mean age 22.6 years) was conducted. The sample consisted of 24 football players, 17 handball players and 16 cross-country skiers. For physical fitness examinations, a graded VO₂max (ml/kg/min) test on treadmill, squat jump on a power plate and bench press with free weights were conducted. Body weight and height was measured and BMI calculated from the aforementioned variables. Lean body mass, body fat percentage and BMD ...
Of the study athletes, seven had started playing handball before the age of 10, while 10 athletes had started it later in life. By comparing the athletes who started playing handball before the age of 10 to those who started later in life, we noticed a difference of 9.69º on the averages of humeral head retroversion angle on the dominant side, and that difference was statistically significant (p=0.025). We also evidenced a greater lateral rotation in these athletes, and also, a wider range of motion, but these differences were not regarded as statistically significant (p=0.156 and p=0.057, respectively).. DISCUSSION. In literature, several studies can be found describing a lower humeral de-rotation in pitcher athletes, resulting in a greater humeral head retroversion on the dominant side when compared to the non-dominant side(2-4,7,8,12).. According to some authors, this would be an adaptive process in order to avoid the impact of humeral head on glenoidal cavity (13). Indeed, some authors ...
Uganda competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, from 13 to 29 August 2004. This was the nations twelfth appearance at the Olympics, except the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, because of the African boycott. The Ugandan Olympic Committee sent a total of eleven athletes to the Games, nine men and two women, to compete in four different sports. Half of these athletes had been participating in boxing, including Joseph Lubega, who later became the nations flag bearer in the opening ceremony. There was only a single competitor in swimming and weightlifting. Uganda left Athens without a single Olympic medal, since the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, where the late John Akii-Bua won the gold in the mens 400 m hurdles. The nations best result came with a fourth-place finish from Boniface Kiprop in the mens 10,000 metres. Ugandan athletes have so far achieved qualifying standards in the following athletics events (up to a maximum of 3 athletes in each event at the A Standard, and 1 ...
The purpose of total hip replacement is to relieve pain, not to make better athletes. Still, the modern patient is likely to return to recreation and sports. There is no current consensus on the safety of resuming athletics, though a surgeons judgment and a patients common sense will serve as appropriate guidelines. The issue of athletic participation after hip arthroplasty has become more relevant in recent years, with an increase in the number of young and active patients receiving joint replacements. The article reviews patient surgery, implant and sports related factors and discusses currently available guidelines that should be considered by the physician when counseling patients regarding a return to athletic activity after total joint arthroplasty. Current evidence regarding appropriate athletic participation after total hip arthroplasty is also reviewed. Patients should be encouraged to be active after total joint arthroplasty, and this may include participation in athletic activity. ...
