The FINA Sports Medicine Web Pages are designed to provide team physicians and allied medical support staff with up to date medical and scientific information to guide their daily care of the aquatic athlete.
Coaches, athletes and parents can also use these pages to answer their questions regarding aquatic health issues.
FINA conducted injury surveillance on water polo in 2004 at the Olympic Games, and all FINA disciplines in 2008 Olympic Games. A similar survey was conducted in 2009 at the FINA World Championships.
This lecture reviews the statistics of the injuries as well as common causes of them by discipline.
This Lecture was presented by Dr. Margo Mountjoy FINA Bureau and IOC MC Member and Dr. Jim Miller FINA SMC Member.
