AUSTRALIAN MASTERS ATHLETICS Inc
The Australian Institute of Sport has been working with Breast Research Australia to develop a short but comprehensive online survey to identify the breast support issues that female athletes experience at an elite level in order to improve their comfort and, ultimately, their athletic performance.
Brooke Brisbine at AIS Biomechanics is conducting a survey on breast pain and sports bra use in female athletes as part of her PhD studies. The majority of responses to the survey thus far have come from young athletes, so she is interested to incorporate Masters athletes into this research so that she can really understand breast issues and how they affect athletes of all ages. See also the flyer [PDF].
To participate, athletes need to be 18+ yrs females competing in national or international competitions. The survey takes less than 10 minutes and asks questions related to sports bra use, breast pain and breast injuries. Athletes can access the survey online at bit.ly/2g2BOPm or by emailing Brooke Brisbine directly at this email address.
