Athletes from less affluent countries need more education on health to prevent injuries during hard training. But knowing more can also be a risk. This is the conclusion in a new study from Linköping University on inequality in athletics.
A research project coordinated by LiU has been awarded more than SEK 15 million by the Swedish Research Council to evaluate vaccination against Covid-19.
Reports from Imperial College regarding the spread and the effects of Covid-19 had considerable policy impacts in several European countries. But the models that informed the reports have considerable flaws, according to LiU-researchers.
Researchers at Linköping University have developed a unique method to predict influenza epidemics by combining several sources of data. The forecasts can be used, for example, when planning healthcare provision during an epidemic.
In a new study LiU researchers demonstrate a link between sexual abuse and suicidal thoughts in elite athletes. "We have shown that emotional pain is important to deal with it”, says professor Toomas Timpka.
The anxiety experienced by elite athletes over illness symptoms is linked to the risk being injured during competition, according to a study carried out at the World Championship in Athletics 2015.
Two or three injuries per season – that is standard for an average athlete. The consequence can be life-long suffering. Linköping University now has a research centre devoted to this issue.
Athletics (track and field) is globally one of the most popular individual sports and the largest sport at the Olympic Games. The Athletics Research Center is a hub for international multi-disciplinary Athletics research.
