Sports scientists under test

On Friday 20 April the Dane Court Sport Scientists teamed up with Dan Stretch and Martin Southam from Canterbury Christ Church University to spend a day looking at how their bodies perform and learn. The day kicked off with a variety of laboratory-based physiological tests looking at lung function and performance, although many tried, only Wian Opperman could get close to Mr White. However later in the day the experienced Lewis Ray managed to prove that youth is an advantage when it comes to reactions, ensuring that Mr Wallace, Mr White and Miss Riley finished well down the leader board on the reaction-timing T-Wall. Luke Dawson took on the challenge of completing a VO2 max test along with Wian Opperman, they both scored highly and hopefully with this added information should improve their personal performances on the track and on the rugby pitch.

After fifteen hours on a plane, what struck us first was the brightness; strange really for a place often described as a “dark continent!”  Eighteen months of planning and fund raising has all led to nineteen students finally touching down in Namibia, with its vast open spaces and endless blue skies, to start the adventure of a lifetime.
