This is an edited sound recording of the Australian sports scientist and swimming coach Forbes Carlile (1921-), speaking about sports science as a career. Carlile states that being competent at sport is useful, but not absolutely essential, for someone to be a good sports scientist. He says all scientific discoveries lend themselves to application in sport, and many discoveries are yet to be made. He suggests that much of the currently accepted knowledge about sport science will be replaced by new discoveries. The recording was made in October 2008.
