Applying an ecosystem approach to explore modifiable factors related to the risk for low motor competence in young childrenEarly childhood is a crucial phase for motor development in which differences between children can manifest. These differences might be related to factors in ecosystems in which children are raised, of which little is currently known. The current study's purpose was to explore which modifiable factors in children's ecosystems are associated with the odds for low versus higher motor competence (MC) in 4- to 6-year-old children.
Association of handgrip strength with all-cause mortality: a nationally longitudinal cohort study in ChinaHandgrip strength is considered a vital and reliable measure of comprehensive physical assessments, whereas the association of handgrip strength with overall mortality risk among Chinese adults was less studied. We prospectively investigated the association between handgrip strength and all-cause mortality among Chinese middle-aged and older people based on data from the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS).3
Reduced death rates of elite Australian Rules footballers compared to age-matched general populationTo determine age-matched death rates of current and retired elite male Australian football players (Australian and/or Victorian Football League) with the general population.

Subscapularis tendinopathy is highly prevalent in elite swimmer's shoulders: an MRI studyThe aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of abnormal anatomical change present on MRI in elite swimmers' shoulders compared to age-matched controls.
The impact of exercise modality on exercise-induced gastrointestinal syndrome and associated gastrointestinal symptomsThis study aimed to determine the impact of running and cycling exercise modalities on the magnitude of exercise-induced gastrointestinal syndrome (EIGS) and associated gastrointestinal symptoms (GIS).
Epidemiology of sudden cardiac death and sudden cardiac arrest with resultant disability during high school organized sport in JapanTo examine the incidence and survival rates of sudden cardiac arrest that were documented during school organized sports in Japan.
Longitudinal associations of childhood fitness and obesity profiles with midlife cognitive function: an Australian cohort studyClusters of low fitness and high obesity in childhood are associated with poorer health outcomes in later life, however their relationship with cognition is unknown. Identifying such profiles may inform strategies to reduce risk of cognitive decline. This study examined whether specific profiles of childhood fitness and obesity were associated with midlife cognition.
Comparison of different test protocols to determine maximal lactate steady state intensity in swimmingThis study compared step test, lactate minimum (LM) test and reverse lactate threshold (RLT) test protocols with maximal lactate steady state (MLSS) in free-swimming. All test protocols used fixed duration increments and high work-rate resolution (≤ 0.03 m·s−1) to ensure high sensitivity.
Neck strength and concussion prevalence in football and rugby athletesTo determine the maximal isometric neck strength of male and female rugby and football (soccer) athletes, and to investigate the relationship between neck strength and sport played, sex, age, anthropometric measurements and concussion history.
Sports Dietitian practices for assessing and managing athletes at risk of low energy availability (LEA)To characterise the assessment and management practices employed by Sports Dietitians when assessing and managing athletes at risk of low energy availability (LEA).
Hamstring injuries in England and Wales elite men's domestic cricket from 2010 to 2019Describe hamstring injury incidence across competition formats, activity at time of injury, and time of season, facilitating the identification of injury risk factors in elite men's senior First-Class County Cricket.
Match and training injury risk in semi-professional rugby union: A four-year studyDescribe medical-attention and time-loss injuries during matches and training in a Welsh Premiership Rugby Union team.
A profile of the skills, attributes, development, and employment opportunities for sport scientists in AustraliaThe purpose of this study was to document the technical and transferrable skills required for sport scientists, and perceived employment opportunities both currently and in the future with a particular emphasis on comparisons between academic and applied sport scientists.
Results of a nationally implemented cardiac screening programme in elite cricket players in England and WalesWe assessed the diagnostic yield and costs of an electrocardiogram-based national screening programme in elite cricket players and the incremental value of transthoracic echocardiography and periodic evaluation.
Analysis of more than 20,000 injuries in European professional football by using a citizen science-based approach: An opportunity for epidemiological research?It has been claimed that analyses of large datasets from publicly accessible, open-collaborated (“citizen science-based”) online databases may provide additional insight into the epidemiology of injuries in professional football. However, this approach comes with major limitations, raising critical questions about the current trend of utilizing citizen science-based data. Therefore, we aimed to determine if citizen science-based health data from a popular online database on professional football players can be used for epidemiological research, i.e.
Diagnostic yield and cost analysis of electrocardiographic screening in Swiss paediatric athletesAthletes performing sports on high level are at increased risk for sudden cardiac death. This includes paediatric athletes, even though data on screening strategies in this age group remain scarce. This study aimed to assess electrocardiogram interpretation criteria in paediatric athletes and to evaluate the cost of screening.
The efficacy of weekly and bi-weekly heat training to maintain the physiological benefits of heat acclimationTo examine the efficacy of weekly and bi-weekly heat training to maintain heat acclimatization (HAz) and heat acclimation (HA) for 8 weeks in aerobically trained athletes.
Normative data and percentile curves for long-term athlete development in swimmingTo provide normative data and establish percentile curves for long-course (50 m pool length) swimming events and to compare progression of race times longitudinally for the various swimming strokes and race distances.
