OBJECTIVES Recent studies have identified rates of injuries in young elite athletes during major athletic events. However, no such data exist on master athletes. The aim of this study was to assess incidence and types of injuries during the 2012 European Veteran Athletics Championships as a function of age, performance and athletic discipline. METHODS Report forms were used to identify injured athletes and injury types. Analysis included age (grouped in five-year bands beginning at age 35… Expand

Acute Injuries in Track and Field Athletes
TLDR
Medical coverage teams for future large-scale track and field events need to plan for at least 2 major orthopaedic and 7 major medical injuries per 10,000 participants, particularly masters male athletes, are at greater risk of injury compared with other sexes and competition levels. Expand
A Review of Injury Patterns in Athletes Competing in Combined Competitions: Heptathlon and Decathlon
TLDR
The purpose of this article is to review the common injuries and injury patterns affecting the combined event athlete. Expand
Chapter 1 Achilles Tendon and Athletes
Achilles tendon (AT) is the strongest human tendon. AT disorders are common among athletes. AT pathologies vary from tendinopathy to frank rupture. Diagnosis is made clinically. Imaging modalitiesExpand
Age-Related Changes of Sprint Kinematics
TLDR
The age-related changes of sprinting kinematics have a minor contribution to the aging-related decline in performance and differ between sexes and change with age. Expand
Genome-wide association screens for Achilles tendon and ACL tears and tendinopathy
TLDR
Achilles tendinopathy or rupture and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture are substantial injuries affecting athletes, associated with delayed recovery or inability to return to competition, and genome-wide association screens for these injuries using data from the GERA cohort are performed. Expand
Clinical considerations for the ageing athlete.
  • S. Brun
  • Medicine
  • Australian family physician
  • 2016
TLDR
For the ageing athlete, there are differing needs as well as risks associated with higher intensity physical activity, and how to cater for these needs and minimise the potential risks is outlined. Expand
Effect of age on the sex difference in Ironman triathlon performance
TLDR
Results suggest that, in Ironman triathletes, the increase in the sex difference in performance with advancing age is discipline dependent, and further examination of the (physiological and training load related) factors that are associated with the age-related decline inIronman triathlon performance is required to understand why thesex difference in cycling and running performance increases with age. Expand
The master female triathlete.
  • J. Loudon
  • Medicine
  • Physical therapy in sport : official journal of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sports Medicine
  • 2016
TLDR
Biology of aging, injury prevention and a suggested training program for master female athletes are presented in this Masterclass article. Expand
Nutrition for Older Athletes: Focus on Sex-Differences
TLDR
The most important hormonal alterations occurring during aging pertaining regulation of appetite, glucose homeostasis and energy expenditure and the modulatory role of exercise training are described and nutritional aspects that may support health and physical performance for older athletes are highlighted. Expand
Aging affects mechanical properties and lubricin/PRG4 gene expression in normal ligaments.
TLDR
Lubricin/PRG4 gene expression was affected by aging and its speculated role in ligament function may be related to interfascicular lubrication, which in turn may lead to altered mechanical function with aging and increases in potential for injury. Expand

Injuries in Youth and National Combined Events Championships.
TLDR
During the National and Youth Combined Events Championships, over one third of the registered athletes incurred an injury, with an injury incidence higher than in international elite track and field competitions, Interestingly, this higher injury risk concerned the younger population affecting immature musculoskeletal structures.

TLDR
Master athletes had a lower risk of chronic diseases than the controls and it remains to be determined how far this advantage is due to initial selection and/or incomplete adjustment for covariates. Expand

TLDR
The data indicate that the injury surveillance system covered almost all of the participating athletes, and the results highlight areas of high risk for sport injury such as the in-competition period, the ankle and thigh, and specific sports. Expand
