World Olympians Association retired athletes MSK health study
  The World Olympians Association (WOA), as part of the International Olympic Committee, would like to find out more about the musculoskeletal issues faced by retired athletes. What the main issues are and how prevalent they are i.e is pain the biggest problem; are Olympians undergoing long term medical treatment? An important part of the research will be asking Olympians to reflect on previous injuries and training practices in their own careers to try and identify possible causes, to inform evidence based prevention initiatives. This will be a prospective questionnaire study, utilising World Olympian Association and National Olympic Association databases to contact and survey all athletes who have competed at the IOC Summer and Winter Olympic Games.
