An explosion of activity

such areas as sports injury prevention, injury treatment and rehabilitation, the
physiology of conditioning and competition, sports biomechanics, and sports nutrition.
Under the leadership and guidance of the IOC Medical Commission, the Olympic Museum Library has established the most complete and authoritative Collection of Sports Medicine / Sports Science publications in the world.The Collection includes all types of monographs and references texts as well as scientific journals in French, English, German, Spanish, and Italian.
