Performance Summit: Research to Application with Performance Scientist Remy Tang


Earlier this year Kitman Labs' hosted our first, annual Performance Summit in the UK, London. Amongst the many talented presenters was Performance Scientist, Remy Tang, who shared his research on accelerations and decelerations in professional football. His research highlights the importance in considering how accelerations and decelerations contribute to player fatigue and the overall physiological cost on the team, and how this may impact performance throughout the season. More pertinently by identifying higher intensity accelerations and decelerations, backroom staff will develop a greater awareness and control of the overall external and internal demands for players.










Remy Tang is sport scientist/strength and conditioning coach who has worked 10 years in professional sport applying evidence based practice in five different countries to date (Ireland, The Netherlands, England, Scotland and Australia). Clubs and organisations he has worked for include Celtic FC, Liverpool FC, English FA, AFC Ajax, Sydney Roosters and St Patrick’s Athletic FC. 

Although his background is predominantly in soccer he has also gained important exposure to other sporting disciplines such as hurling, Gaelic football and rugby league. He holds a BSc in Sport Science & Health (Honours) (DCU) and an MPhil in applied exercise physiology (Liverpool John Moores University). He has been involved a variety of research and has a particular interest in Post Activation Potentiation (PAP) and the influence that movement type has on the physiological demands in elite team sport players. He has presented at international conferences such as the Sports Analytics Innovation Summit in London and made guest lecture appearances at third level institutions.

Remy joined Kitman Labs in March 2017 after spending more than a decade as a hands on practitioner. His role is to understand the needs of organisations/ clubs and help identify practical solutions to enhance work-flow and data interpretation within various sporting environments.
