“Activity, Fitness, Fatness and Youth Sport: Ten Myths and Evidence-Based Physical Education” by National Institute of Education (NIE)

This presentation discusses and challenges some of the current myths surrounding children’s physical activities, fitness levels and participation in youth sport. The potential impact of scientific evidence on school and lifetime physical education will be addressed, with focus on development of an evidence-based curriculum.

He helped develop International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) guidelines for training elite youth athletes, and was involved in numerous international expert committees focused on promotion of children’s sport, activity, fitness and health.
