Pacey Performance Podcast #182 - Yann Le Meur (Sports Scientist)

April 6, 2018

Yann Le Meur has become a celebrity in the world of sports science after the creation and popularity of his infographics and little white men. I have been dying to get Yann on the podcast for a few years and I am grateful to podcast guests, Martin Buchheit and Mathieu Lacome for helping to get Yann on. What many people maybe don't realise is that Yann is an incredible scientist with a number of publications to his name. For that reason we speak a lot about this in this podcast. Enjoy.
