Athletes can't win gold medals if they can't make the start line.
The goal of our Sports Medicine team is to have healthy athletes perform their way onto the podium.
The sports medicine team understand that if athletes are to perform they need to train effectively, and to train effectively they must be free from injury and illness - this is why we have a strong focus on preventative medicine and work very closely with the physiotherapy team on preventative measures for athletes.
Our experts provide advice and education on travel, recovery and doping. They also work with Sports Scientists as part of integrated teams influencing nutrition and physiology projects.
In the event of injury or illness our network of specialists moves promptly to support athletes back to training and competition.
