Hochleistungstraining und gesundheitliches Risiko aus der Sicht des Athleten

  • J. Verschl


According to personal experiences of a top track athlete, dangers to health in high-level competitive sports lie not only in the increasing quantitative and qualitative demands of training, but perhaps even more in the increasing competition density with less time for recuperation and regeneration. Higher and higher qualification norms set by the various sport associations or committees force athletes to resort to means and measures questionable in sports medicine and sports ethics, e.g. taking anabolic drugs. In order to reduce these health risks, sports medicine is challenged, especially in the orthopedic sector, to improve care and control of the athlete during competition and training, as well as to better apply and supervise preventive measures and curative treatment.
