Learning about the limits of human performance: Participants can gain general
knowledge about the limits of human performance. This can help athletes
understand what factors affect their performance and how they can perform
Importance of Research in Sport Sciences: The presentation shows how research
and findings in the field of sport sciences can be used to improve the
performance of athletes. This enables students to grasp the importance of
conducting research and using scientific data.
Developing Critical Thinking and Analysing Skills: By evaluating the
information presented in the activity, participants can develop their own
critical thinking and analysis skills. This can help them to question
information, think critically and draw their own conclusions.
Motivation and Goal Setting: Seeing what athletes can achieve by pushing their
own limits can inspire participants to set their own goals and find the
motivation to achieve them.
