Covid-19, mental health and physical activity

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


With the world now having lived with the impact of COVID19 for more than a year, the April edition of the Journal examines a number of aspects of the intersection of COVID19, physical activity and mental health in athletes. Faulkner et al. lead off with an assessment of physical activity, mental health and well-being of adults in the UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia during the initial stages of COVID-19 containment responses. George Siopis outlines the case for promoting physical activity amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and Simmons et al. describe the mental health impact on at-risk high-level athletes during COVID-19 lockdown. In the final feature article, Cloosterman’s group assess the impact of COVID19 on running behaviours. In a large cross-sectional study, Rodríguez-López and team determine the prevalence of urinary incontinence among elite athletes and compare prevalence between sexes and across different sports. Rose et al. describe the effect of higher – compared to lower – intensity aerobic and resistance exercise on chronic inflammation in adults.
