Newcastle-under-Lyme College (NULC) has cemented its commitment to Sport by investing £20,000 in a new Sports Science Lab.
The new Sports Science Lab, is based at the College's £6 million Gordon Banks Sports Centre and features top class equipment, including a Wingate Bike, Servomex Gas Analysis, Blood Lactate Testing, Ultrasonic Body Analyser and Heart Rate Monitoring System. With much of this type of professional equipment being used by Team GB athletes in the run up to the London 2012 Olympics.
Shelley Brown, Curriculum Manager for Sport at NULC, said: "The new Sports Science Lab will enable students to have hands on experience testing the College's Elite Athletes and providing Fitness Testing and Health Screening."
The new equipment allows students to gain experience using professional sports equipment which links to their course assessments and provides a distinct advantage to students progressing on to sports based university courses and careers, where this type of equipment is used regularly.
