here the article about the launching of Sabah Sport Science from nst wrote by;

A NEW facility looks set to become the heartbeat of sports development in Sabah.

The National Sports Institute Satellite Centre was launched in Kota Kinabalu to focus on spreading sports science and medicine.

Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob launched the RM200,000 facility at the Likas Stadium.

The centre will help fine-tune development of athletes with a more advanced approach including the introduction of physiotherapy, nutritional balance and psychological preparation.
State assistant Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Jahid Jahim said the centre will give Sabah a new edge as far as preparing athletes for competition and moulding them in the long run.

"Development of athletes is not just about conventional training to become stronger or faster. There is the element of preparing them psychologically, their physical well being or even prevention of injuries," said Jahid.

"This is what the centre is all about -- to help maximise the athlete's potential and I believe it will go a long way in turning Sabah into a sporting powerhouse again."

Former national discus thrower Mohd Fadzil Affendy said sports science has evolved over the years to a point where development of athletes could fully depend on machines that have been invented.

"The best thing about sports science is its accuracy in evaluating the performance of athletes hence giving coaches the advantage of knowing their weaknesses and strength ahead of competitions," said Mohd Fadzil.

"Sports science could also determine the nutrition athletes need to build themselves physically as well as detect potential injuries."

Fadzil stressed, however, trained operators are required to run such a facility because otherwise it will only be a waste.

The satellite centre is one of six in the country under the ministry. The other centres are located in Terengganu, Penang, Sarawak and two in Johor.

It will be utilised to introduce sports science and medicine to athletes and coaches across the state for now particularly on nutrition, injury prevention, psychological preparation and bio-mechanics.
