Promotion of Sports Performance research
The university opened its Sports Performance Laboratory in 2015. Since that time, NIFS has pioneered a substantial amount of experimental and analytical research surrounding Sports Performance. Knowledge gained through this research has helped to scientifically support and enhance the athletic performance of top Japanese athletes, providing them with valuable knowledge in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. In addition, a significant amount of this research, such as that targeting effective training methods to boost athletic performance, has been published online in the Research Journal of Sports Performance.
