    World-first biomechanics research on indoor athletics released in Birmingham:
    This study follows on from the initial, larger project conducted during the IAAF World Championships London 2017 (the Pod. Arena link to that found here: http://podiatryarena.com/index.php?...ndertaken-at-iaaf-world-championships.109146/)

    "Indoor athletics was put under the microscope like never before at last year’s IAAF World Indoor Championships in Birmingham, where 28 high speed cameras recorded all the action as part of the most extensive biomechanics study ever conducted at these championships...

    … the IAAF, in partnership with Leeds Beckett University, has released the results of the ambitious project, which examined the performances of 161 athletes across 13 events in forensic detail.

    For the Birmingham study, the Leeds Beckett team of 25 academics, technical staff and students spent more than 1500 hours capturing and analysing more than 650 video files.

    Lead researcher Dr Athanassios Bissas, Head of Biomechanics at the Carnegie School of Sport, Leeds Beckett University, said the London study had been exceptionally well-received around the world and he expected this study would have similar resonance with the athletics community."
