James Wild – Show Notes

In this episode I am joined by James Wild. James is the Technical Lead for Performance at Surrey Sports Park and a Teaching Fellow in Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Surry. In addition he works as a Speed and Agility Coach with Harlequins Rugby and is Head of Perforance with England Lacrosse. Throughout this episode James outlines key characteristics of initial sprint acceleration in both sprinters and team sport athletes and some of the research he has completed as part of his PhD.
