Well, it's been an amazing two weeks at the winter Olympics games in Pyeongchang, hasn't it?
Filled with amazing record-breaking feats, it's been must-watch viewing. If you're like us at MAT, you've been glued to screen to see how far the human body can be pushed. Often just a little too far as the injury list of hundreds of major injuries over the past two weeks proves.
This blog post isn't about how many injuries occurred though, or how they could have used the MAT to help identify those who may have been at a higher risk of injury during the games. They could have, but that's another post altogether. It's not even about the biomechanics of the sports and common risk factors that need to be assessed or improved.

It is performed on a safe and consistent surface to ensure that test-retest reliability is high. Besides testing an individual's ability to move in all directions as quickly as possible it also tests a “combination of leg speed, leg power, and agility for performance” (Pauole. K, Madole. K, Garhammer. J, Lacourse. M and Rozenek. R, 2000).
