The female athlete / ed. Margo L. Mountjoy

Mountjoy, Margo L | International Olympic Committee. Medical and Scientific Commission

Edited by International Olympic Committee

This new International Olympic Committee (IOC) handbook covers the science, medicine and psycho–social aspects of females in sports at all levels of competition. It focuses on the specific issues that female athletes confront both on and off the field, such as bone health, nutritional recommendations, exercise/competition during menstruation and pregnancy, and much more. Fully endorsed by the IOC and drawing upon the experience of an international team of expert contributors, no other publication deals with the topic in such a concise and complete manner. It is recommended for all health care providers for women and girl athletes internationally for all sports and all levels of competition. It is a valuable resource for medical doctors, physical and occupational therapists, nutritionists, and sports scientists as well as coaches, personal trainers and athletes.
