  HSR - Health Supplement Retailer 07/2001: Sports Nutrition Offers A Well-Rounded Roster of Benefits
The last of the sports nutrition triad is creatine, which accounted for $230 million or 16 percent of the 1999 sports supplements market.
Body builders are among the sports nutrition industry's most loyal consumers, and the level of athletics played today demands participants in most sports to hit the weights regularly.
While many of the hormone supplements have been banned from professional and Olympic sports, and ephedra has become almost taboo, many collegiate and high school athletes are using supplements to build muscle mass and enhance performance, and the majority are not seeking professional advice in terms of which supplements to take.

 N C H S - 2001 News Release - Sports-Related Injuries Cause 2.6 Million Visits Annually by Children and Young Adults to ...
Sports injuries result in 33.9 emergency visits per 1,000 persons 5-24 years old, and account for almost one out of every four injury visits to emergency departments by this age group.
Participation in sports and recreation games and activities should lead to better health and greater physical fitness, not a visit to the emergency department," he said.
In addition to pedal cycling, other sports that frequently result in emergency visits by persons 5-24 years of age include ice or roller skating and skate boarding (150,000 visits), gymnastics and cheerleading (146,000 visits), and water and snow sports (100,000 visits each).

 Reason magazine -- November 2001, Good Sports? by Cathy Young
It's an article of faith among advocates of women's sports that the remarkable growth in women's athletics over the past quarter century has been the fruit of Title IX, the 1972 federal law that requires parity in funding for school-based male and female sports.
Given the seamy side of lucrative men's scholastic sports programs -- including abysmally high dropout rates and a tendency to wink at cheating and criminal behavior by "student" athletes -- seeing men's sports squeezed a bit to create opportunities for women might not be such a cause for mourning.
In sports such as basketball, where women are still battling for a place in the sun, long-term success requires often grating compromises.

 Alcohol Advertising on Sports Television, 2001 to 2003
Television is the medium used most for sports by the majority of these youth (93% of boys, 81% of girls).
The Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth's own research has demonstrated that overall alcohol advertising on televised sports programming in 2003 was more likely to be seen by adults than youth: youth make up 13.3% of the national television viewing population but on average only 9.1% of the audience for televised sports with alcohol advertising.
However, for 16.5% of alcohol ad placements on televised sports ($47.1 million worth of advertising spending), the youth share of the audience was higher than the proportion of youth in the overall television viewing population.

 Sports Sponsorship 2001
The value of commercial sponsorship of sports reached £400m in 2000, having increased by 6% to 10% each year between 1994 and 2000.
This figure represents the value of around 1,000 deals made annually between sponsors and sports organisations, although the true amount spent (including grass-roots encouragement of sport) could be twice as much.
Sports sponsorship is used by companies to either enhance their images in some way, to gain media exposure, or to target groups of consumers — predominantly affluent young men — who are interested in sport.

Compiled by Volker Kluge, former sports page editor of Junge Welt, the most popular East German daily newspaper, who was an apparatchik of the East German sports machine and therefore lacks critical distance to his subject, this encyclopedia covers 1,000 East German athletes, including all 755 who won Olympic medals.
The rest were either world or European champions, or were simply "very popular." The biography gives the name (and, if relevant, the maiden name) of each athlete, his or her athletic discipline, place and date of birth, team or club, and the name of the athlete's coach.
Player biographies (some with stamp-sized portraits) are limited to the clubs and dates of a player's career, and fans will be disappointed with the brevity of the information.
