Please also see below request from Anita Murphy, who is seeking assistance from Master Athletes. Any assistance that can be offered to Anita would be appreciated & perhaps can also provide invaluable information
Hello, My name is Anita Murphy, I am a postgraduate student in the University of Limerick (UL), studying sports performance. To fulfil the requirements of the course I must complete a dissertation; as part of my project I require masters athletes (aged 50-70) from water based and land-based sports. I am looking for both male and female volunteers who are masters athletes (actively training and/or competing) aged between 50-70 years, to perform body composition and functional assessments. These assessments are not invasive or time consuming. The assessment would take place in the UL PESS build (potentially an option to test offsite). These are a once off assessment with no further time required by the volunteers. I would really appreciate if you circulated this email or notified members of the study. Please don’t hesitate to contact me regarding any queries you or members may have. Kind regards, Anita
