Sports Discovery was inspired by the late Nick Broad, who sadly passed away five year ago. It was created by people who were brought together through Nick’s work. Nick was a pioneer of Sports Science. His legacy lives on through the many careers he developed and influenced.
You can read more about Nick on his profile page here.
Five years on since we lost Nick, Simon Austin at Training Ground Guru has shared two articles in tribute to him. In these articles, Simon interviewed some of the people across the football world who worked closely with him. These include Carlo Ancelotti, Paul Clement, Andy Cole, Mike Forde, Jack Nayler and our own Jo Clubb. You can find both those articles here:
Three years ago on Sports Discovery we also shared an article Nick had written in 2004. This focussed on nutrition for football and is still very relevant for us today! You can find that article here: http://sportsdiscovery.net/journal/2015/01/18/nutrition-for-football/
We hope Sports Discovery continues to be a small part of Nick’s legacy.
