An Olympian’s perspective on the role of sport science and psychology in athlete performance
About this Event
Southern Cross University is excited to welcome Craig Pickering to our Coffs Harbour campus to deliver the next of our public guest lecture series, entitled “An Olympian’s perspective on the role of sport science and psychology in athlete performance”.
This public guest lecture series celebrates the new Bachelor of Exercise Science and Psychological Science combined degree at Southern Cross University.
This event will provide insights into the roles of sport science and psychology in enhancing performance in sport. These insights will be useful for anybody interested in studying exercise science and/or psychology, individuals considering careers in this sport, and coaches or athletes who are interested in learning more about performance.
Craig Pickering was selected for both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games, has won medals at the World Championships, and represented Great Britain in both sprinting and bobsledding. Following his career as an elite athlete, Craig has continued his work in the sport industry and is currently Athlete Pathways Manager with Athletics Australia. He has supplemented this work through a Professional Doctorate, and he has conducted high quality research on topics such as the roles of caffeine, technology, and genetics in sport performance.
This lecture will combine Craig’s personal experience as an Olympic athlete with latest research from sport and exercise science, and his knowledge from working in the industry, to share insights into world-class performance.
