The English Institute of Sport (EIS) has worked with British Triathlon since 2002 and predominantly delivers support to athletes across the UK.
The EIS are part of British Triathlon’s support team and are integrated within the programme, which is centralised at Loughborough. Members of the team often travel away to training camps and competitions as part of their roles.
The sport of Para-triathlon requires a wide range of expertise including specialist rehabilitation programmes and injury prevention in order to support the athletes and help them discover what it takes to win.
EIS Performance Nutrition and Physiology support services have also played an integral part within the sport. Performance Nutrition strategies within training have continued to develop and the altitude work and athlete profiles within the physiology lab and in-the-field have continued to input into coaches’ decision making.
