Description In this talk, Brent Hayden uses personal experiences to explore the psyche of failure and how you can learn to use it as a tool for success.

How ultimately, failure can be your greatest coach in life. Brent Hayden is a retired Olympic Bronze Medallist and World Champion swimmer who represented Team Canada for a decade. He is the current Canadian record holder in six events and regarded as the fastest swimmer in Canadian history. Brent's message is that success results from learning through failure.

Increasing Physical Levels is the Key Component to Improving Lifelong Health and Well Being

Increasing Physical Levels is the Key Component to Improving Lifelong Health and Well Being

Plenary Session at ECSS Malmö 2015 "Inactivity and the Ageing Population" Presentation by S Blair, University of South Carolina Sedentary habits are highly prevalent in most countries of the world. In the US approximately 25-35% of adults are inactive, meaning that they have sedentary jobs, no regular physical activity program, and are generally sedentary around the house and yard. Given that sedentary and unfit individuals are at approximately two-fold higher risk for many health conditions than those who are moderately active and fit, the population attributable risk (PAR) of inactivity is high. In the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study (ACLS) the PAR for low fitness in more than 50,000 women and men followed for many years is 16-17% of deaths. This is far higher than other putative risk factors for mortality. For example, obesity accounts for 2-3% of deaths in this cohort. Another example from the ACLS is that in 3,293 obese men (BMI 30.0), 27% of the deaths might have been avoided if none of the men had prevalent cardiovascular disease at baseline whereas 44% of the deaths might have been avoided if none of the men had been unfit. The independent relative risks for death are comparable for prevalent cardiovascular disease (RR=2.4) and for low fitness (RR=2.3). Over the past few decades we have largely engineered the need for physical activity at home, on the job, and during leisure-time out of the daily lives of most people in industrialized societies. To address the major public health problem of physical inactivity we will need to consider and evaluate societal, environmental, and individual approaches to making physical activity more common for more people more of the time.

TalkScience@BL - Doping in sport: fair game?

The 33rd event in the British Library’s TalkScience series in 2016 discussed the issue of performance enhancement in sport: If sport is about pushing the limits of human potential, are drugs an inescapable and integral part of athletics? Or do performance enhancing drugs devalue sporting achievement and deprive athletes of a level playing field? How widespread is doping in professional sports and what impact does this have on amateur athletes and young sportspeople? What are the long term effects of doping on athletes’ physical and mental wellbeing? The expert panel included Professor Andy Miah (University of Salford), Nicole Sapstead (UK Anti-Doping), and Professor Chris Cooper (University of Essex). The event was chaired by Owen Gibson (the Guardian)

SSAC17: Engaging the Modern Fan

SSAC17: Engaging the Modern Fan

The ubiquity of technology has presented a distinct challenge for both sports leagues and teams. With the plethora of options available at one’s fingertips, it’s become increasingly difficult to attract and perhaps more importantly, keep today’s fans interested in and engaged with the product. The most effective organizations meet these challenges of today, and rising to that challenge starts with crafting an amazing live experience where fans can do more than simply watch a game. It involves a mastery of social media, a clarity of brand, and a proficiency with data. The organizations that craft the content that will go viral overnight are the ones that position themselves for success in this new world. The appetite of the modern fan demands more: more engagement, more purposeful content, more ways to watch, more options, and fundamentally, more work from teams, leagues, and brands who wish to build upon the special relationship of being a fan. From the perspective of experts across the sports industry, this MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference panel discusses how these organizations are shaping the interaction with the modern fan.
