(Public Event): Athlete Weight Management in Sport - thought leadership panel discussion

About this event

Weight-cutting is one of the biggest risks to athlete welfare in mixed martial arts but is not an issue distinct to MMA, impacting a range of mainstream sports. In this panel discussion, experts from across sport will share their experiences and learnings to promote awareness and provide recommendations for safe and effective weight management that can be practically applied by athletes, coaches and administrators.

The panel discussion will be followed by an opportunity for questions and answers.
