As a tough endurance sport, demanding high training volume, British Triathlon uses sport science and medical expertise to build robustness, prevent injury and implement tailored interventions to help each athlete excel when it matters.

EIS practitioners deliver support to athletes and coaches at training camps and competitions as well as day-to-day at the Loughborough and Leeds University bases and also work with Sport Wales in Cardiff to support athletes based there.

From the recovery and rehabilitation support, through to Performance Nutrition and Physiology strategies in the lab and in-the-field, sport science and medical support help to inform coaches’ training and race-day decision making, as well as the training and performance needs of each athlete.

To have the edge in competition, you need to make sure you continually look to improve every aspect of preparation and the EIS helps me make the most of sport science and medical support in achieving that.
