Why did I write it?

As outlined in the Introduction to the book respectively the “What is it about?” page Athletes’ Health & Top Performance answers a need in elite sports and empowers athletes, coaches and parents. I therefore formulated the following three goals:

1. Breaking down recent and essential findings in sports medicine and sports sciences and presenting them to you in a written and understandable manner supported by pictures and illustrations

2. Empowering athletes, coaches and parents by directly bringing you applied knowledge and practical skills to support you in your everyday life as sportsmen and women

3. Giving practical advice for good preventive measures, early self-treatment options and recommendations when to see a doctor during training and competition.
