Upon reading the article on the home page I felt compelled to comment on the hyperbole presented. You can't tell me that elite sporting teams have not been doing sports specific training, eccentric training, pre-season screening, injury surveillance and everything else presented as an abstract at the conference for at least 20 years. If not, what are we blowing our money on an Institute of Sport for? If someone reckons that this same approach can therefore reduce current injury rates in elite sports by a further 80% then I'm sorry but they are suffering the aftermath of a few too many Carlsberg's. Perhaps it should be quantified that the study spoken of was garden variety underage athletes and there is no evidence for any correlation with any other level of play. Whilst the studies stated are good science and interesting they are far from earth shattering and although I may be taking the comments out of context, are no magic bullet answer to injury prevention in elite sport.
