The International Olympic Committee organized an expert group to review the “evidence for the relationship of load—including rapid changes in training and competition load, competition calendar congestion, psychological load and travel—and health outcomes in sport.” Part 1 for risk of injury covers terminology and definitions, monitoring of load and injury, load and risk of injury in athletes, practical guidelines for load management, and research directions for load management in sport. Part 2 for risk of illness covers terminology and definitions, measures and monitoring, load and risk of illness in athletes, practical clinical guidelines, and suggested research.
