Biomechanics Interest Group - BIG 2012
The BASES Biomechanics Interest Group 2012 meeting was held at the University of Ulster on April 4th 2012. The meeting was well attended by 88 delegates and featured some very high quality oral presentations as well as an excellent keynote lecture delivered by Professor Joseph Hamill (University of Massachusetts). There was also a topical panel discussion on the merits of barefoot/minimalist footwear and a golf biomechanics demo in the University’s new biomechanics research lab.

Two best student abstract prizes (provided by Qualisys) were awarded at the meeting to Michael Nunns (University of Exeter, first place) and Andrew Collinson (University of Lincoln, runner-up). Both students also presented their work orally at the conference.
We are now looking forward to next year’s meeting hosted by Adam Hawkey and his team at the University of Wolverhampton.
