Women’s Sport is growing so quickly right now and we love it! The levels to which female athletes are rising too is great to see, take the recent Commonwealth Games as an example and the fact that over half the medals were won by the girls.
As the progression of Elite Female Athletes rises, our focus and education should be around the entire female athlete.
Women’s physiology is different to males, and all too often over the years research papers have neglected to add much focus to that fact. However, times are changing and now we are seeing more than ever the inclusion of female subjects in research papers giving us access to much more accurate findings that we can adapt and feed into our athletes programs.
If we’re proactive hopefully we can provide them with better opportunities and strategies that are suited to their physiological needs.
