London becomes a laboratory for Olympic sports science

London becomes a laboratory for Olympic sports science | Exercise Physiology Homepage | Scoop.it

Scientists, engineers, and technology gurus make crucial contributions to the Olympic Games, bringing fresh insight to coaches and athletes at each new round of the international competition.

Interesting; in that it is not often that sport scientists can study athletes and compare them on mass. An amazing opportunity for the development of sport science.

I was part of the OZ2000 team at the Sydney Olympics. We measured the rowers and kayakers. It is very hard to get a research project at the Olympics, but a great experience if you can. We have some photos at: http://petermellow.com/2010/OZ2000photos/index.htm

Why is fluids vital and how her body may respond to environmental conditions and stresses she faces today

Why fluids are vital

 

Dehydration it can impair both physical and mental performance in all  levels of ironman  ways how to avoid this from happening or at least minimising it is  by using appropriate drinking strategies

 

It will decrease overheating of the skin by keeping your fluid level up to standard .

Blood flow to muscles is depleted when dehydration is occuring

Also important to replace the fluids you lost after you finishing exercising because if not you can cause hypohydration

 

How environmental conditions would effect her

 

If she does not drink enough fluids then her body will not reckon well to the environmental conditions.  she will have sweating on her body and he will overheat his skin this will cause  sweating . Her heart rate to increase highly blood volume to muscles will decrease mentaly she will not be there because dehydration has impaired his performance

 

Stresses she will face today - Will be the weather conditions

                                            - Have been fully focused and thinking about nothing else just winning

                                            - Different grounds impact on her feet

                                            - Timing her race to perfection

                                            - Keeping her breathing rate at the right level and the heart rate

Gav-it would have been good to include here the scenario I gave you so that readers could relate what you have written to the context in the scenario. Also, you need to check spelling/sentence structure prior to publication.

Exercise - Exercise's Effects on Diabetes

Exercise - Exercise's Effects on Diabetes | Exercise Physiology Homepage | Scoop.it

Question: You are a type 1 insulin depednent diabetic. You have started to train for a 100km charity bike ride and are currently completely 2 hour rides comfortably every weekend. Explain how engaging in this much exercise will impact you condition.

Answer: It is important to maintain a balanced and regular blood sugar level so during the 2 hour rides it is important to regularly snack on some sugar (barley sugars, jelly beans are easy to use during exercise or a sports drink such as powerade). It is also important to monitor blood sugar levels and how they are being affected and for how long afterwards as well so taking you levels should be done 2 hours before, 1 hour before, 5-10min before, 5-10 min after, 1 hour after, 2 hours after and 3 hours after. By finding out how this much exercise is affecting you blood sugar levels you will be able to make assumptions and corrections in you pre event meal, during snacks and post event meal to help balance out your sugars. Insulin wise; insulin shouldn't be taken too close to the start because you want blood glucose available you don't want it being stored away as glycogen.

Long term changes that occur in an endurance athlete with regular training

1- The  numbers of mitochondria (Powerhouse)  in the cells will increased will  mean eventually  an increase in the rate of energy production created in the cells

 

2-  Muscles limbs and bones become stronger to cope with the limited stress

3-  The respiratory level will increase therefore allow more oxygen to be diffused into the blood

4 -  Latic acid level is much lower during competitions because due to the circulatory system providing alot more Oxygen and removing waste products alot quicker than usual

5 - Arterial walls will become eventually alot more elastic which allows higher  tolerance of changes in amount blood pressure.

The Science of Sport, part of The Guardian Sport Network: The tour is getting slower, so what can we read into this?

What do you all think about this? We have discussed ergogenic aids in sport as part of sports medicine and I find it interesting that the Tour is reporting a trend of slower times.
