It will also include a forum discussion involving these sporting greats along with USC’s High Performance Sport Director Professor Brendan Burkett, injury prevention expert Professor Caroline Finch of Edith Cowan University and Clare Dallat of the Centre for Human Factors and Sociotechnical Systems.
