In this episode we take a deep dive into a seminal study recently published focusing on the injury and illnesses which most contributed to training missed by athletes on the Australian Rowing Team during the London and Rio Olympic Games. This is a must read overview for coaches, athletes and service team members working in Rowing, but also other endurance activities and indeed all sports. Dr Lari openly discusses the study design, the demographic, and the key injury and illness factors which lead to missed training by some of the most elite athletes in the world.

Dr Lari is a Sport & Exercise Physician and has worked in this specialist field for more than 10 years. Dr Lari was the Chief Medical Officer to Rowing Australia for the Rio Olympic Games and has worked as an Australian Team Doctor across a range of other sport settings including the Sochi Winter Olympics, Beijing Paralympics and the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games.
