Success in sport relies on the optimal development of the physical, mental, technical and tactical elements of performance. At the core of every performance is the physiological or physical preparation of the athlete. The methods and techniques of sports science are tools, and like the tools of any trade their effectiveness lies in the skills and knowledge of the user.
