We are proud that our recently published book has been positively reviewed by a respected academic such as Popi SotiriadouThe full review can be read by clicking here.

She starts her review of the book: 'Successful Elite Sport Policies' by arguing that as knowledge on the role of elite sport policies on elite athlete success rapidly advances, international comparisons have become of great interest and value to countries and politicians, practitioners and sport organisations, athletes, their coaches and entourage, as well as academics, researchers and students across the globe. The new edition on the SPLISS 2.0 research reports findings that extend the boundaries of knowledge, understanding and appreciation of successful elite sport policies across 15 nations in the most articulate, succinct, and methodologically sound way.

There is no doubt that the research interest that SPLISS has generated all over the world is a testament to its impact at a global level! Thanks to the hard work of the SPLISS initiator Dr. Professor Veerle De Boscher and her colleagues, SPLISS is now a worldwide phenomenon and this book represents the large scale of the trajectory of the unprecedented impact that this work has had on a global spectrum.

Overall, this is a much needed book for a great host of individuals, organisations and nations! It will keep its readers engaged and informed at all times. This book achieves it aims as it advances both academic knowledge and contributes to effective elite sport policies for practitioners, offers a mix of theoretical and practical insights and develops an instrument that can be used by policymakers and academics alike to evaluate the effectiveness of elite sport policies. It is a must have book in your personal, organisational or faculty library!
