The High Performance Project takes you into the world of sports science and elite sport, through the stories and experiences of the most influential people in the sports industry.
Elite sport has been going through a rapid evolution on the back of huge technological and scientific advancements and investment.
Sport has changed for ever, and the scientific experts have never been more important. But with the opportunities come greater pressures and challenges.
On the High Performance Project, hosts Ben Tripodi and Jack Shepard talk to the industry experts, scientists, coaches and professional athletes, who share their insights and perspectives on technology, data and performance. The guests also talk about their lives outside of sport and how they maintain balance with their high pressure environments.
