Description

Preparing for Beijing 2022 - Working with Para and Disability Sport Science

Presented by Phill Heritage

During this talk Phill will reflect on his experiences during the last year working with the GB Para Nordic Ski and Armed Forces Para Snowsport teams as they restructure in preparation for Beijing 2022. Phill will outline some of the key physiological differences between able-bodied and amputee athletes, talking through the classification system and explain the demanding physical requirements of the sport. The talk will also highlight a variety of participation options available in adapted sport, and offer insights to the breadth of roles athlete support personnel have to perform during camps and when competing.
