This Special Edition is dedicated to those working in the area of elite sport/high performance sports. Elite sport research is about development, performance, training, testing, injury, health, and rehabilitation throughout the entire career of the athletes. Studies can either be performed in the lab, field, or during competition. Research is often interdisciplinary, and combines disciplines such as biomechanics, medicine, nutrition, physiology, physiotherapy, psychology, sociology, and others. New technologies such as wearables, imaging, and customized measurement devices are often used to provide evidence to coaches and athletes. Working with high performance athletes has some particularities, such as the level of performance, but also a limited number of participants. Therefore, we are accepting articles, reviews, and case reports for this Special Issue.
