The Science of Sport: How to Win Gold
The Science of Sport: How to Win Gold was the largest schools competition ever run by The Physiological Society.
In this competition, A-Level (or equivalent) students were given an opportunity to direct their own sports physiology research project, work with their friends and gain invaluable experience for the next step in their career. The students were also provided with access to scientific mentors to support the development of their projects.
Shortlisted students were invited to present their work at The Society's scientific meeting, The Biomedical Basis of Elite Performance, in London on 20 March 2012. Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes were awarded to the best projects on the day.
Gold prize was a Train Like a Champion Day at an English Institute of Sport High Performance Centre, which went to a team at Northgate High School in Suffolk for their project: ‘The effect of video imagery on sports performance.’
