Sports Kinesiology Expert Joins SportsEdTV as Senior Contributor
New York City, Jul 23, 2020 - SportsEdTV viewers and users may now access FREE sports kinesiology information contributed by Dr. Ben Johnson, leading expert in the field. In addition to his IOC services, he’s been an important educator, scientist and researcher at American universities. Dr. Johnson was one of the earliest adapters of Dartfish video technologies as he recognized the potential for the use of video playback and analysis in coaching athletes for sports performance improvement.
Dr. Johnson is currently Vice Dean of the School of Health Sciences and Practice at New York Medical College in Westchester County, NY. He previously chaired kinesiology and health promotion at the University of Kentucky.
“We are proud to have such an accomplished leader as part of our online FREE access platform for coaches, athletes and their families,” said SportsEdTV Founder and Chairman Robert Mazzucchelli.
At Georgia State University, he founded and directed the biomechanics lab which focused primarily on sports performance in a variety of sports including golf, baseball and powerlifting. He is the author of numerous sports medicine-related research articles and is a frequent presenter at international professional meetings.
“Kinesiology addresses physiological, biomechanical, and psychological dynamic principles and mechanisms of movement and Ben Johnson is a go-to resource to learn how they apply to sports performance,” adds Victor Bergonzoli, CEO of SportsEdTV.
Dr. Johnson also served on a number of international sport-related committees including the Program Committee for the 1996 IOC World Congress on Sport Science. He was a multi-sport athlete and played baseball in college.
