    A career change and high performance organizations: The good, the bad & the ugly

    sportsscientists.com 23 Jan '15, 11am

    As I posted the other day , I’ve just finished my first (of presumably/hopefully many) stint in Dublin, working for World Rugby in a career change. I resigned from the University of Cape Town at the end of last year, and rugby’s global governing body came forward right away to offer m...

    Women vs Men Part III

    sportsscientists.com 20 Jan '15, 12pm

    What this graph shows is that when you look at the SAME person across a range of different distances, then you find that the running speed is higher in the men from 5 km up to 56 km, but that the gap between men and women decreased progressively, until eventually, we hit the Two Ocean...

  • 2015 Genie: Three wishes for the year

    sportsscientists.com 03 Jan '15, 10am

  • 2014 Wrap Part 1: Week by week musings

    sportsscientists.com 29 Dec '14, 10am

    Let’s wrap up 2014 with a two-part series covering some of the big stories of 2014. As usual, it feels as though the science aspect of sport was dominated by doping accusations, explanations and justifications. These always provide the most controversial, news-worthy stories. And this...

  • 2014 Wrap Part 2: The science of sport review

    sportsscientists.com 30 Dec '14, 2pm

    In response, Kenyan athletics have, and I’m being kind, blundered and blustered their way through their defences and counter-allegations. The whole of Kenyan sport deserves some kind of condemnation for their approach to doping in 2014, because they also produced an official investiga...
