An Evening of Endurance - Monday 17th November, 1830, UoB

From our friends at the University of Birmingham:

Hello,

I hope you don’t mind me contacting you about our workshop next Monday, run in conjunction with our partners Physiokinetic.  I think you/your club may find it relevant and a cost effective way of finding out a little bit about sports science and what the Hi Performance Centre at UBSport actually do!

The format of the session is:

·         Refreshments will be served from 1800 for a 1830 start for this 2 hour session.

·         25 minute slots on 3 of the following topics: endurance psychology, sports nutrition, injury prevention and laboratory testing.

·         The last half an hour is a panel discussion / Q+A session with your chance to quiz our experts.

The workshop is open to endurance athletes from all sports – cycling, triathlon, running etc.

The presenters are:

·         Eleanor Jones – A registered sports nutritionist, Eleanor is a multiple National Masters Cycling champion. She’s worked with our scholarship athletes, preparing them for life at university and towards major sporting games like the Commonwealths.

·         Matthew Thompson – Matt’s a fairly new addition to our team, but we’re really glad to have him. He’s a sport psychologist, having worked with pro teams such as Derby County Cricket and Newcastle Falcons (rugby). He’s not too bad at cricket either.

·         Alex McGregor – Alex is a specialist in the training and testing of athletes. He’s also really into his environmental stuff, so if you’re planning on doing anything crazy like the Marathon des Sables or even an altitude camp, he’s your guy.

·         Mike Gosling – Mike is our uber experienced physiotherapist. Mike owns Physiokinetic (www.physiokinetic.co.uk) and specialises in the treatment of sporting injuries. He’s also really unique because he works alongside our team trying to prevent injuries. He has loads of tips and tricks to keep you injury free.

The cost is £3/£5 and tickets are available online here: http://shop.bham.ac.uk/browse/extra_info.asp?compid=1&modid=1&catid=413&prodvarid=242

Hope to see you on the night,

Eleanor Jones
