Business Pic LargerSarah Johnston, PhD, assistant professor, kinesiology program, ATSU College of Graduate Health Studies, presented at the International Sports Science Symposium held in Eugene, Ore., July 18-21.

Her presentation, Daniels’ Distance Runners – An investigation of cardiovascular fitness over 45 years, was co-authored by Dr. Daniels, kinesiology program, and Dr. Farris, chair of the physical therapy program.

The study measured the cardiovascular fitness of elite male runners. It was started by Dr. Daniels at the Olympic Trials for the 1968 Mexico City Olympics. There were follow-up tests with these same runners in 1993 and 2013. This study now represents the longest investigation of the cardiovascular fitness of former Olympic athletes.

“The data from this study is novel and important because it can help improve the recommendations for physical activity throughout the lifespan,” said Dr. Johnston.
