Reflections on the Summer Games of the XXXI Olympiad

Dr Giles Warrington, Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Sciences in PESS is Lead Performance Physiologist and Sports Science advisor to the Olympic Council of Ireland. Giles was Team Manager at the pre-Games training camp in Uberlandia and was also part of the OCI Medical Team in Rio where he provided sport science support to the competing Irish athletes. This feature provides an account of Giles’ reflections on the Irish Performances, the pre-Games training camp and plans for the future.

There were some other noticeable performances including UL’s own Thomas Barr (MSc Sports Performance) who finished in a magnificent 4th place in the Men’s 400m hurdles, narrowly missing out on a medal in a new Irish record of 47.97 seconds. His performance was all the more remarkable when considering that his preparations for the Olympics where severely hindered by injury which meant he was only able to train consistently for the last 12 weeks leading into the Games! Michelle Finn (year 4 Physical Education) represented Ireland in the 3,000m steeplechase at the games and finished in a time of 9:49:45.

The light of the Olympic flame in Rio has been extinguished and the Olympic torch begins its 4 year journey towards Tokyo which provides an opportunity to review and reflect on the Summer Games of the XXXI Olympiad. This was Ireland’s twenty first appearance at a Summer Olympics and despite some disappointments and controversies was one of our most successful when you look at the overall performances of the Irish team.

Whilst the medal tables are the media driven method of quantifying performances, this crude evaluation tool masks many of the trends and only tells half the story. It should be noted that Ireland had a number of finalists and top 10 finishes and several personal bests. These performances are reflective of the growing strength of depth emerging in a number of sports as well as the positive performance impact the support services delivered through the Irish Institute of Sport coupled with the preparation strategies and support programmes put in place by the Olympic Council of Ireland (OCI) sports science and medical team had.

In total 77 athletes from 14 sports competed for Ireland in Rio which represented our largest team ever. This included men’s hockey which represented Ireland’s first team sport to qualify since 1948. For many athletes the 4 year journey to Olympic qualification with the extremely challenging qualifying standards represents the pinnacle of their sporting careers. The records shows that Ireland won a total of 2 silver medals in rowing (Men’s lightweight double sculls - Gary and Paul O’Donovan) and sailing (Women’s laser radial – Annalise Murphy).

No sooner had the Olympic Games finished in London in 2012, the attentions of the OCI turned to preparing for Rio which posed its own unique challenges. These included long haul travel as well as a number of environmental factors such as heat, humidity, sun and hygiene as well as medical issues such as Zika.


NEWS

The first priority was to secure a high quality training base which replicated the conditions that would be faced in Rio. In this regard Ireland was ahead of the pack in being only the second competing nation to finalise its pre-Games training camp in Brazil in Uberlandia in 2013. The training camp in Uberlandia proved to be a great success which allowed athletes to fine tune their final preparations in a quiet performance focused environment away from the Olympic hype. The same training base was later used to similar effect by the Irish Paralympic Team which won an impressive 11 medals in Rio. Such was the universal positivity associated with the training environment created in Uberlandia that this will serve as a blue print for future pre-Games training camps.

Aside from the training environment a considerable amount of planning and preparation went into developing performance focused support structures and resources. A number of information and educational resources and videos were developed for athletes, coaches and support staff and incorporated into a designated password protected OCI Olympic app. These included specifically prepared Irish strategies on: travel, sleep, rest and Paralympians won recovery, health and hygiene, nutrition and hydration as well as an impressive 11 tapering and peaking. medals in Rio Another important area is related to the key issue of continuity of care. Due to restrictions on flights and the number of accreditations available to the Team Ireland it was never going to be possible for each athlete to have their own support staff with them at the Games. However every attempt was made to ensure that there was appropriate transfer of information between support personnel and also making sure that the core HQ sports science and medical support staff comprised of those actively working with the sports. For many athletes the Olympic quadrennial represents 4 years of commitment, sacrifice and hard training. The post-Games period represents a time to rest, recharge and reflect. The same applies to the extended support team which comprises of coaches, managers, medics, physiotherapists and sports science personnel. A formal review and debrief process will now take place over the coming months so that the lessons learned in Rio can be distilled and dissected and serve as a framework on which to build future success.

Professor Ann MacPhail, Head of the Department of Physical Education and Sport Sciences, was awarded the title of the British Education Research Association (BERA) Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy Scholar for 2016 at the BERA Conference at Leeds University (13-15 September). The award recognizes the distinguished contribution to the Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy research community of the awardee. The scholar lecture provides an opportunity for participants to listen and debate a variety of issues pertinent to the Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy research community. The lecture seeks to advance scholarly thinking. Professor MacPhail’s lecture was titled ‘PESP and the three ‘A’s: apprenticeship, academia and administration’ and focused on the power scholars, as individuals and as a community, have to (i) entice and encourage individuals into the area of sport pedagogy, (ii) to mentor them as they develop as scholars, (iii) to learn from and with them, and (iv) to prepare them to become confident, informed and caring individuals with a continued passion for the field. Professor MacPhail urged attendees to consider a number of pertinent and urgent issues including (i) being cognisant of the extent to which PESP is actively recruiting early-career scholars, and (ii) doing more work on establishing ‘participation frameworks’ and sharing what they look like, encouraging more work on how early-career / younger colleagues negotiate their development in the field of PESP through entry into the university system. Professor MacPhail is pictured above being awarded the Scholar Medal by Professor David Kirk. Also attending from the PESS department included Dr. Missy Parker, who received an Outstanding Reviewer award for the journal, Dr. Antonio Calderon, and Cassandra Iannucci. |04 | Autumn 2016| PESS e-Zine

Feature

Sport & Exercise Sciences Graduate Profile Daniel Downey BSc. 2014 Daniel Downey, Sport and Exercise Sciences Graduate (2014) is an Applied Sport Scientist with STATSports Technologies Ltd, a global leader in performance monitoring technology. He is the National Team GPS Analyst with the Irish Rugby Football Union. During the Rugby World Cup, Daniel took time out to talk about his career to date, his role with STATSports and offers advice to Sport and Exercise Sciences students for their future careers.

What does your job involve? My role with STATSports as an Applied Sports Scientist is to assist and educate sporting professionals in the operation and integration of IMU Inertial Movement Unit (IMU) technology (more commonly known as GPS) in their training programmes. The collection and analysis of GPS and accelerometry data are becoming a necessity in all sports rather than a commodity. My job is varied and involves testing new concepts and technologies in Dundalk Institute of Technology, carrying out research at the head office in Newry, presenting at conferences or visiting teams at their training grounds around the world. Within the National Irish Rugby Football Union team setup, I use the STATSports Viper system as a performance monitoring tool. I use the technology in the identification of key performance indicators, monitoring load and return to play protocols and recognising potential injury risk factors.

How did you get your current job? I wanted my FYP to be something relevant to me and something to use going forward into the working world. With the help of Joseph O'Halloran, a Teaching Assistant in PESS at the time, I completed an evidenced based literature review on physiological and psychological monitoring methods in elite Rugby Union which grew into my Final Year Project. I was then able to reference this work at my interview with STATSports.

What are the key skills your role requires? Initiative and innovation. Not waiting to be told ‘what to do’ but coming forward with original ideas will make you stand out from the crowd and will help you excel. Around any one athlete there are a host of other professionals all feeding into the one process. Hundreds of data points are collected every day and it's using these objective numbers effectively with some subjective feedback which yield the most positive

results. I have to avoid getting lost in the data that I’m sitting in front of day in and day out. Being able to take a step back from a red flag and analysing a scenario from everyone's perspective is pivotal. The degree in Sport and Exercise Sciences allowed me to appreciate and understand the multiple roles involved at a professional outfit and recognise the importance of communication between the roles. STATSports works with companies and professional organisations from around the world towards the release of a new range of products that aim to revolutionize the way we monitor and assess elite athletes. I act as the direct point of contact for the client, be it in person, at the training ground or online.

What advice can you give PESS students who are thinking about their future Coop? Pick something you feel will benefit you most when it comes to looking for co-op employment. I did my co-op placement in New Zealand with the Chiefs Super Rugby Franchise. New Zealand was daunting to say the least. The financial burden and the thought of being 28 hours away from home was scary but I knew it was going to be an experience that would reap the most rewards in the future. While on co-op I was approached by Waikato Rugby about taking up a role with them for the upcoming ITM Cup (domestic professional rugby union) competition season. Although this meant taking a year out from my studies in UL, I knew a higher position with another professional team would be worth delaying my graduation for one year.

What advice can you give Sport and Exercise Sciences students? Before you know it your UL experience will be over and the stress and responsibility that comes with the working world will start to come at you thick and fast. Start preparing as soon as you can. Constantly update your CV and LinkedIn profile and NETWORK online or in person. The Sports Science industry is a relatively small one. A lot of companies will look to employ someone with a mutual connection or trusted reference. Staying in contact with people you’ve only had a short interaction with could prove to be the difference in landing a new job because when that someone is asked to recommend a candidate, YOU want YOUR NAME to be the first person that comes to mind.

PESS Staff Walking on World MS Day Prof. Mary O’Sullivan Department of Physical Education and Sport Sciences

There are 9,000 people living with MS in Ireland and on May 25, 2016, PESS staff took one step for each of them to create awareness and raise vital funds for MS services in the community. The “9000 Steps for MS” walk was organised by UL and our colleagues in Clinical Therapies. The walk was led by former Munster and Ireland rugby player, Jerry Flannery. Staff were encouraged to walk or run, one lap or two, or just walk over the bridge and make a donation. It was a wonderful morning and a good way to celebrate the end of the examinations and marking period on campus. Six PESS staff joined the UL MS Walk and five are pictured below: from left to right: Mary O’Sullivan, Brigitte Moody, Missy Parker, Deborah Tannehill (with her dog Sierra), and Ursula Freyne.

Paula McCarthy (PME - Physical Education) Paula McCarthy is a graduate from the Professional Master in Education (Physical Education) programme at the University of Limerick. Prior to taking up a teaching post in Dubai, Paula took time to reflect on her involvement in research initiatives in Physical Education and encourages Physical Education teachers and students to look for similar opportunities. Having just completed the Professional Master of Education (Physical Education) programme in UL, research is still fresh on my mind! Throughout the programme a huge emphasis is placed on the importance of being both an active researcher, and applying research to practice. Along with completing my thesis, in the past few months I have been part of two exciting events that are evidence that research is alive and growing in the world of Physical Education in Ireland today. I hope that other Physical Education students and teachers can see that events such as these are raising the status of Physical Education in Ireland and are based on simple concepts that students and teachers can actively get involved in.

The Physical Education Expo, Trinity Comprehensive School, Dublin Over a number of weeks I worked with a group of transition year students on a research project for this year’s Physical Education (P.E.) Expo while I was on placement. Of the many categories to choose from (such as nutrition, components of fitness, health promotion and performance psychology), the transition year students chose Games Development and created a new game to help increase levels of engagement in Physical Education in their school.

The theme of the event was ‘Charter for Change’. The day was packed with Masters and PhD presentations, and guest speakers who provided some great insights into the work being done, and the future of youth sport in Ireland. I came away from the event with a feeling of encouragement in that I engaged in deep conversation with a number of people who were enthusiastic about the future implications of my research. Furthermore I gained a range of inspiring ideas for my own teaching through other presentations and questioning.

The students and I travelled to Dublin in March and the students presented their project to the judges, including RTÉ sports presenter Darragh Moloney. The projects in all categories were fantastic to see – a great example of the

Students Raise €4000 for Charities 12th Annual Jacinta O’Brien, Plassey 10km Run Saoirse Farrelly and Peter Gallagher 3rd Year Sport and Exercise Sciences

The Jacinta O’Brien Plassey 10km run is an annual event organised in the memory of Jacinta O’Brien. As a lecturer Jacinta had a major influence on the UL campus and its people. Jacinta’s memory lives on in this race as she was instrumental in the organising of previous Plassey 10Ks which will furthermore be named in her honour. The event is part of the second year BSc. Sport and Exercise Sciences module ‘Coaching Science and performance 3’ which is coordinated by Dr. Mark Lyons (PESS).

Three race leaders elected: Gordon McKevitt, Philip Maher and Clodagh Quilter. Other committees included: budget, advertising, entertainment and communications, race management, safety and facilities and registration.

The class worked closely with Neasa O’Donnell (UL Sport), who without her help and support, the race could not have ran as smoothly as it did. Each evening, two students promoted the race in the foyer of the ARENA registering people for the event. Hannah McCormack and Cormac Powell (PESS PhD students) assisted the class tremendously by attending and running weekly tutorials, promoting the event in the department and keeping us on our toes. Despite the weather the race day was a great success. The teamwork on the day was immense and even the weather couldn’t dampen our spirits. Tom and Jessie Barr kicked off the event - a great start to the race by two great PESS athletes.

RACE DAY

Chosen by a class vote, the charities selected were The Irish Heart Foundation and Suicide Aware. A Launch Day for the race took place on the 10th of March, in the Students Union Courtyard to fundraise for the RACE charities and to raise awareness about LAUNCH the race. A bake sale, games, music, dancing and activities were organised for the Launch Day and wristbands for the race were sold.

PESS DELEGATION VISIT BEIJING SPORT UNIVERSITY

News

A delegation from the Department of Physical Education and Sport Sciences (PESS) recently (October 2016) made a second trip to Beijing Sport University (BSU) to explore the possibilities of BSU students attending PESS as exchange, Masters or PhD students. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the two universities with a focus with respect to developing collaborative research opportunities between the two universities. BSU has a similar number of students to UL (i.e. approximately 13,000 students) with the unique context that all students who attend the university are registered on sport-related programmes, e.g. sports science, physical education, journalism, sports training, sports coaching and sport therapy and health.

‘A NATION OF COUCH POTATOES ?’ Physical activity, sedentary behaviour and health in Ireland Researchers in PESS are working to address the epidemic of sedentary behaviour in Ireland. Effective national level health guidelines and policy must be based on accurate information about how physical activity and sedentary behaviour contribute to health. The Health Research Institute (HRI) recorded Professor Alan Donnelly and Dr. Ciarán MacDonncha earlier this year talking about the impact of their research. Click here for full case study

Professor Alan Donnelly explains: “Low levels of physical activity are attributed to 6-10% of coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, breast and colon cancer and over 20% risk of Alzheimer’s disease in Europe.” In their research, Alan and Ciarán along with PhD Students Gráinne Hayes & Cormac Powell apply technology to accurately measure levels of physical activity and sedentary behaviour. They have related these findings to health indices and behavioural determinants.

L-R Prof. Paul McCutcheon (VPA&R UL), Prof. Ann MacPhail, Dr. Mark Campbell and Gary Ryan (PESS)

The visit allowed the PESS delegation (Professor Ann MacPhail, Dr. Mark Campbell and Gary Ryan) to meet with BSU students interested in spending time in PESS in UL as an exchange student or a research student. The PESS delegation introduced selected students to the PESS Department, research areas and research expertise. The delegation also introduced five potential research projects to the students to provide them with a selection of potential projects they could consider contributing to if they were to undertake further study in PESS. Dr. Mark Campbell also delivered a lecture to selected Sport Science students. On return from the visit to BSU, Professor Ann MacPhail, Head of PESS commented, “It was very important for us to connect directly with BSU students who are serious about considering the opportunities studying abroad can provide them. The students appeared genuinely interested in learning more about the study opportunities in PESS and interacted with each project idea that we shared with them".

Previous research of Prof. Donnelly’s highlighted alarmingly high levels of sedentary behaviour among female teenagers in Ireland with 79% of their total day or 19 hours spent lying or siting down.

Dr. Ciarán Mac Donncha indicates the importance of this research “Our research has had a significant impact on national policy. National physical activity guidelines, a dedicated dissemination platform for these guidelines, and a national physical activity plan comprise a sea change for promotion of physical activity in Ireland. UL has made a significant contribution to these achievements”.
