Every winter, athletes from all sports come to Jeju Island to improve their training. In the warmer weather, athletes prepare for the season with physical fitness and practical training.
Jeju City has an all-weather indoor stadium that allows athletes to train in snow or rain, making it a favorite training location for athletes.
This year, a new program was added to support athletes. The ‘Injury Prevention + Management Camp’ is run by experts from IHC International Training Center and Aulim Hospital under the IS0 (International Quality Certification Institute) and ran from February 22 to February 6.
Doctors, physiotherapists, and professional trainers were stationed at the indoor training center opposite the Jeju General Training Center and provided one-on-one guidance on cold compresses, taping, and rehabilitation before, during, and after exercise, as well as balance and strengthening training for each body part.
On the first day, Lee Yoon-hee (PhD, exercise physiology, vice president of the Korean Society of Sports Nutrition), a leading authority on sports nutrition in Korea, gave a special lecture on ‘Changes in energy metabolism by exercise phase’ and Gil Joo-hyun (PhD, exercise physiology, clinical, sports nutritionist) gave a lecture on ‘Sports nutrition strategies for athletes’.
Athletes from various levels of middle, high school, university, and unemployed athletes, including athletes from Bamun High School and Konkuk University, which are representative of Korea’s middle and long-distance athletes, participated in the lecture and answered their questions about the sports field, and the lecture hall was full of learning enthusiasm.
Kim Jae-chul, director of the IHC International Education Center, which conceived the camp and is conducting the actual event in collaboration with the Jeju Athletics Federation and the Korea Middle and High School Federation, said, “If the intensity and volume of training are supported by preventing and minimizing injuries and sufficient rehabilitation of athletes through this opportunity, Korea’s athletics performance, which has been somewhat stagnant in recent years, will gradually return to its former strong form.”
“The nutritional intake of athletes who are in the midst of growth is very important for their development and performance, and requires active interest and support 토토사이트 추천 from all walks of life,” said Bamun High School coach Cho Nam-hong. “If they learn when, what, and how to eat through the educational process, not only their parents but also the athletes themselves will eat well to improve their performance,” he said, asking for interest and continued donations of talent.
“The importance of sports nutrition and food intake strategies to improve athletes’ physical fitness and performance cannot be overstated,” said Lee Yi-soo, director of the Chungnam Provincial Office, who is also a commentator for the KBS Marathon. “Such an educational program was not available in the past, but now the need is emerging, so it will help athletes improve their performance if it is conducted regularly.”
“It is rewarding to see student-athletes suffering from minor discomfort or injuries due to hard training, and then recovering their physical condition with the support of the camp,” said Kim Jae-chul. “We will closely discuss with Jeju City and the Jeju Athletics Federation to make the Athletics Winter Training Team Support Camp more systematic and under better conditions.”
