Tuesday, 8 May, 2018

On Thursday 3 May, four Grade 11 IBCP BTEC Sport students and two Grade 10 future BTEC Sport students, visited the sports medicine clinic at the Berlin Olympic Stadium and enjoyed a 90-minute guided tour of the Olympic Park. The trip was in preparation for their next year’s units of study on assessing risk in sport and fitness testing for sport.

A detailed medical analysis took place, investigating, lung volumes, lactic acid tolerance and oxygen uptake. The stadium tour helped to emphasize a wide variety of career opportunities associated with sport. They looked at VIP event management, film-making, journalism, physiotherapist facilities, sports coaching, facility maintenance and marketing.
