Neeraj, who is currently training in Finland for the upcoming World Championships in Athletics and Commonwealth Games (CWG), attended the online session and said that having a team with technical knowledge in sports science and biomechanics helps grow as an athlete and deliver world-class performance.
“I believe that to be able to give a world-class performance, things like sports science and biomechanics matter a lot with your regular training. In addition, having knowledge of sports science also helps you understand things technically. such as nutrition, diet, recovery and biomechanics. Only after understanding all of this and more can we progress as an athlete and as a competitor. This is my case here and at NSNIS Patiala, where I learn all this little by little and I can progress as a player, so having knowledge of sports science and biomechanics helps a lot.
