TLF ID M024884

This module, Sports science and biomechanics in elite and adaptive sports, introduces students to the concept of ‘marginal gains’. At the elite level, athletes and competitors seek to make targeted changes to their performance in order to achieve minor improvements. These marginal gains can be the difference needed to beat a personal best or break a world record. Students will explore how science and technology can assist elite competitors in their pursuit of marginal gains. Then, students will engage in a process of recording and analysing their performance over a 10m sprint and will evaluate and improve their sprinting technique using a combination of slow-motion video, targeted sprinting models and data recording in a spreadsheet. This resource is also downloadable as a SCORM file: the downloaded version will only work if you upload it to a webserver, such as Moodle or Canvas.
