London, England in Association with Stanford, CA, USA
Friday 9th December 2011
After some last minute itinerary shuffling, schedule revision & some sharp logistical planning, this afternoon will see Johan Terpstra & Cheri Mah presenting to the UK Athletics support staff, coaches & athletes on the effect sleep has on performance & recovery.  Johan is Intus Heathcare's sleep expert & will be coming into UKA's HiPAC at Lee Valley to present & discuss the importance of sleep strategies pertinent to our athletes, whilst Cheri is one of the foremost names in sleep research & will be presenting on-line from her sleep lab at Stanford University in California.

The afternoon has been long in discussion but short in the planning as a window of opportunity presented itself before Christmas & more pertinently, before a large group of our athletes head off to South Africa for warm weather training in I am very grateful to Cheri & Johan for agreeing to present at such short notice.

For those of you planning to attend this afternoon, Johan will be speaking at 15.00 in the old UKA/EIS office at Lee Valley Athletics Centre, whilst Cheri will be presenting at 19.00 on-line.  To access Cheri's presentation, click on the link below:

Below are a list of papers that would be valuable pre-lecture reading or post-lecture review - just click on the links to access.

The intention is to film Johan's presentation & record Cheri's, which, once edited, will be available for those unable to make either presentation to access at your leisure.

See you this afternoon!
