A new state-of-the art sports science laboratory has opened at the University of East London.
The facility, which is located at SportsDock at UEL’s Docklands campus, will give students the opportunity to hone their skills using the very latest fitness-testing equipment.
It was opened officially by Charmagne Barnes, Dean of the School of Health, Sport and Bioscience..
Sports Science lecturer, Andy Galbraith, said: “Students learn the theory in their lectures and now they can come to a space in the same building where they can get the practical hands-on experience teaching them those key sports science skills.
“They can do all of the key tests that an elite athlete would have done to assess their fitness.
