European Athletics’ third High Performance Webinar Series restarts on Friday 10 September after a brief summer break with the renowned German throws coach Rene Sack providing a presentation on The discus throw: technical model and training for the elite athlete.
Sack has been Germany’s head coach for women's discus since January 2017. Beside working as a coach and for the German federation, he is one of the organisers of the famous throws meeting in Halle.
Later in the month, on Friday 24 September, Italy’s Luca Filipas will present on The effects of mental fatigue on physical performance.
Filipas is an endurance coach for elite long-distance runners, cyclists and triathletes. The interest of researchers and coaches in investigating a potential impact of mental fatigue on physical performance has increased during the last years and Filipas will discuss the different effects of mental exertion that have been found in strength and endurance disciplines, including athletics.
The full programme for the remaining eight webinars until the end of 2021 – each lasting approximately one hour between 1300 and 1400 CET – can be seen here.
