The Development of Sports Science in China
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in Chinese; abstract in English only.
Sports Science is a relatively new discipline which utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach to formulate its subject matter. Prior to 1949, the emphasis in the People's Republic of China (PRC) was more on the organization of sports e.g. in the organization of sports competitions and participation in the Olympics. The emphasis on producing world class athletes in the PRC has focused on the need to integrate the theories in sports science with the practical implications on the sports field. The paper intends to give a brief description of the development of sports science in the PRC during the past 40 years.
