Performance and recovery
Wade L. Knez
This seminar and the attachments below all treat a somewhat similar subject – sports in hot environments, creating thermal stress. Considering the efforts made by some Gulf States to acquire international sporting events, viz. the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, this is a timely topic of near dramatic urgency. Wade Knez provides us with three papers, of which the first is the most important to read beforehand; the other two he is the first author of.
- “Training and playing football in hot environments” by J. Dvorak & S. Raciness, from Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports
Authored by FIFA’s Chief Medical Officer, this article provides an interesting account of the perspectives and challenges that footballers face when playing football in the heat. Its interesting to take note of the changes that have taken place to the scheduled timing of the World Cup in 2022 since this article was published.
- “The impact of match-play tennis in a hot environment on indirect markers of oxidative stress and antioxidant status” by Wade L Knez & JP Périard, from British Journal of Sports Medicine
- “Does Living and Working in a Hot Environment Induce Clinically Relevant Changes in Immune Function and Voluntary Force Production Capacity?” by Wade Knez, Olivier Girard, Sebastien Raciness, Andrew Walsh, Nadia Gaoua and Justin Grantham
