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 ...
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, ...

10/11/2017. Accidents, injuries and unexpected emergencies can - and do - happen in youth sports.. And they can strike at any time.. During a T-ball game in South Florida last year a drunk driver drove onto the field. Javier Perez, who was there to watch his son play, heroically pushed a man out of the way of the oncoming vehicle but was struck in the process. Both of his legs were amputated and he has endured more than 20 surgeries and procedures.. Perez will speak at the upcoming NAYS Youth Sports Congress in a session entitled Building Your Shield Part 2: Emergency, Crisis and Conflict Readiness. The 16th annual NAYS Congress takes place Nov. 8-11 in Orlando, Fla.. BUILDING YOUR SHIELD.

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 ...
The American Heart Association (AHA) and American College of Cardiology (ACC) have provided recommendations regarding eligibility and disqualification of competitive athletes with cardiovascular abnormalities.
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. ...
The mission of the Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and competition in a variety (33) of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in sharing of gifts and friendship with their families, other athletes, and their communities.

During the last few years, the movement has developed many new global initiatives, which expand its former sports activities. They include: 1. Coaching excellence and the coaching model 2. Partnerships with international (regional) sports federations 3. Sports Resources Teams (SRT) 4. Extended quota for high level athletes 5. Athletes Leadership Program (ALPS) 6. Young Athletes Program 7. Youth volunteer initiatives 8. Unified Sports Program 9. Motor Activity Training Program 10. Healthy Athletes Program These ...
Using the 2003 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, multivariate logistic regression was used to determine the odds of suicide ideation (SI = thoughts and plans) and suicide attempts (SA) during the previous 12 months, by physical activity (PA) behaviors during the previous 7 days. PA was defined as no PA, irregular PA (IREG), moderate intensity PA ≥ 5 days/week (MOD), vigorous intensity PA 3 to 5 days/week (VIG), and frequent vigorous PA 6 to 7 days/week (FVIG). Separate modeling was also conducted on suicide variables and any team sports participation during the previous 12 months (yes or no). Odds ratios (OR) were adjusted for age, race/ethnicity, geographic region, sad/hopeless feelings, cigarette smoking, alcohol use, drug use, a combined BMI/weight perception variable, unhealthy weight control practices, sports participation (during physical activity analyses), and physical activity (during sports participation analyses).. ...

The judicial procedure will also change. Doping cases will all be heard by the FEI Judicial Committee, which will be composed of seven independent members rather than the three or four who make up current committees. Committee members will all have legal background and should not have any interaction with FEI personnel that may influence their decision making. Doping offences will carry a steep suspension of up to two years - which may be reduced or removed under specific circumstances - plus disqualification from the event and a fine. Medication Class A cases will be addressed through the FEI fast track system or through a Judicial Committee hearing. Offences will result in either suspension or in disqualification and a fine. However, if the case is referred to the Judical Committee, a suspension of up to a year can be imposed on top of the disqualification and fine. Medication Class B cases will always be fast-tracked, unless they are repeat offences, and, if ascertained, will result in ...
