The Department of Health and Human Performance at A&M-Commerce recently conducted performance testing with athletes competing at the John Green Texas Greatest Athletes Invitational from June 2-4 at the Greenhill School in Addison, Texas.
The research team included Drs. Michael Oldham, Vipa Bernhardt and Steve Prewitt; Kaylie Daniels, RDN; and Assistant Track and Field Coach Glen Sefcik.
The event provided an opportunity for the team to conduct innovative research designed to bridge the gap between sports science and the art of coaching. The overarching goal is to enable elite performance for athletes competing in USA Track & Field decathlon and heptathlon events.
“We're excited to conduct this research and contribute to elite athletic performance,” Oldham said. “Working with these high-level athletes and USA Track & Field is an amazing opportunity for our research team, including faculty, graduate and undergraduate students.”
