AISTS Sports Medicine Podcast - Is Running Marathons Healthy For You?

Discover the world of sports management through the AISTS Sports Medicine podcast, featuring interviews with leading experts, professionals and academics.

Sports medicine is one of the scientific disciplines of the AISTS Master of Advanced Studies programme and is led by Dr Boris Gojanovic.  It brings participants up to speed with the current challenges in maintaining a healthy and performing human athletic body.  Did you know that every time your foot hits the ground when running, a stress of 3 to 4 times your body weight is absorbed by the ankles, knees, hips and lower back.  In this month's AISTS Sports Medicine podcast Gonzalo Lasarte and Paola Lopez pose the question - is marathon running good for you.  They take a close look at the pro's and con's of long distance running and the hot topic of sudden death in runners.
