England Athletics would like to make you aware of a piece of work that has been undertaken by UKA. UKA has worked with Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) for several years, providing a screening service to athletes on the World Class Performance Programme. UKA and CRY are now seeking to encourage more athletes to use CRY’s screening service to help to identify any cardiac problems that may be otherwise hidden.
Full information about CRY and their services can be found on their website at http://www.c-r-y.org.uk. Young people between the age of 14 and 35 who would like to have cardiac testing can go to http://www.testmyheart.org.
