Elite sport is getting a lot better at recognising the value that unlocking and maximising our wellbeing, which includes performance; the influence that unlocking this has for someone's 'longevity' in sport. So having a long and, kind of, successful career in sport. And I think that slowly but surely we are starting to view performance and even success as something that is just evolving. Seeing it more than just winning and the outcome of a match, but it is seen as kind of how people's lives can change.

Let's do this together! When you come to Leeds Beckett, you’ll be part of a diverse community of students from around the world.
