For our Biology class we studied “Tommy Bowes Body Cheack” witch aired on RTÉ One. This was very interesting to do as we got to look at the fitness you would have to maintain to be one of the top athletes. This sports science documentary chronicles the sporting-life and season of one of our top sportsmen as he makes his return from injury to play for his country. Along the road to recovery, Tommy is tested through cutting edge sports science experiments to uncover what makes him the elite sportsperson he is, from grueling pre-season training to full match fitness. And, just as Tommy returns to elite performance, his RBS 6 Nations hopes are dashed when he suffers a serious injury.
This was a very interesting topic to learn in class and found it interesting to know the types of fitness and dietary requirements you need to be the top athlete at your own game.
