SportsAid is a charity which supports young athletes, like Marco and helps them become the stars of the future.
The day included various tests for the athletes invited, which included:
Body Composition (using the Bodpod)
Power Assessment (vertical jumps on force platform)
Mentoring (with Olympic swimmer, Kerri-Anne Payne) on self-awareness
Temperature Assessment & Environmental Chamber (measuring core body temperature during a treadmill protocol in the lab and environmental chamber, set to 32degrees Celsius and 60% humidity).
Cognitive Assessment (iPad games including reactions, concentration and awareness)
