About the Author:

The International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE) is the world’s foremost international organization representing sport, sport science, and physical education. The council was originally created in 1958 and has undergone several developments and changes over the past 50 years. It is a world leader in supporting international congresses and scientific meetings concerned with sport science and physical education; it is also an advocate for fair play and ethics in sport. It works directly through relationships with influential organizations such as the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); the United Nations Office of Sport for Development and Peace, and the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

The council serves as an international organization concerned with the promotion and dissemination of results and findings in the field of sport science and their practical application in cultural and educational contexts. Its aims are to contribute to the awareness of human values inherent in sport and physical activity; to improve health and physical well-being; and to further develop physical activity, physical education, and sport in all countries.
