Fantasy Camp


I spend this past Tuesday at SMU in Dallas meeting with Peter Weyand, Ralph Mann and Peter Vint. This was originally going to be the day of the first annual SMU Speed Symposium that was canceled due to some administrative and logistical considerations. The idea of the meeting was to brainstorm about a future conference and talk about potential future research ideas on all aspects of speed. Just the opportunity to sit around a table and share ideas with sport scientists of this stature was a great honor; it was like a sport science fantasy camp for me. The outcome will be a great conference that will bridge the gap between the scientist and the practitioner. Any input that you the reader could provide as to the optimum time of year would be greatly appreciated. Remember this will be an international conference.
