Singapore has played host to a number of major sporting events including the Formula 1 Grand Prix and the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in recent years.The prominence of these events along with the success of Singapore's athletes at the XIX Commonwealth games in Delhi and the XVI Asian Games in Guangzhou is a demonstration of the investment and commitment of the country to sport which will culminate with the opening of the new Singapore Sports Hub in 2014.
With these expanding interest in sport comes a need to provide sport science support services to athletes, teams, coaches and managers to improve success rates. Along with the investment in elite sport is the national need to maintain fitness of a conscript army, prevent obesity in our children and improve the health and activity of an aging population subject to chronic diseases associated with physical inactivity.
