A Strategy to Inform Athlete Sleep Support From Questionnaire Data and Its Application in an Elite Athlete Cohort

Haresh T. Suppiah, Paul B. Gastin, and Matthew W. Driller

with a more nuanced appreciation of the potential sleep disturbances faced by athletes, as well as the athlete-specific challenges that may cause these disturbances. While studies have highlighted the prevalence of poor sleep duration and quality, and suboptimal sleep hygiene behaviors in athletes

This was done by correlating sleep quantity and quality with factors such as the external TL, the traveling distance, the location (home vs away), the timing of the matches (night vs day), and the match result (win vs loss).

Effects of Fundamental Movement Skills Training on Children With Developmental Coordination Disorder

Jie Yu, Cindy H.P. Sit, Angus Burnett, Catherine M. Capio, Amy S.C. Ha, and Wendy Y.J. Huang

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of fundamental movement skills (FMS) training on FMS proficiency, self-perceived physical competence (SPC), physical activity (PA), and sleep disturbance in children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) compared with children with typical development (TD). A total of 84 children were allocated into either experimental group (DCD[exp], TD[exp]) who received 6 weeks of FMS training or control groups (DCD[con], TD[con]). FMS were assessed using the Test of Gross Motor Development-2, whereas PA was monitored using accelerometers. SPC and sleep disturbance were evaluated using questionnaires. Results showed that the DCD[exp] group had significantly higher scores in FMS and SPC compared with the DCD[con] group at posttest. The DCD[exp] group scored lower in sleep disturbance at follow-up when compared with posttest. It is suggested that short-term FMS training is effective in improving FMS and SPC and reducing sleep disturbances for children with DCD.

Presleep Heart-Rate Variability Biofeedback Improves Mood and Sleep Quality in Chinese Winter Olympic Bobsleigh Athletes

QinLong Li, Charles J. Steward, Tom Cullen, Kaixuan Che, and Yue Zhou

psychophysiological benefits of HRV biofeedback may in turn reduce SOL 11 and scores of sleep disturbance. 12 To date, there is very limited research using this intervention in athletic populations. During the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, many athletes will be under high levels of physiological and psychological
