To the Editor: I note with interest Best's article suggesting that medical involvement in sport and training should not focus only on the elite athlete.1 I agree wholeheartedly with this premise. Best informs us that a sports medicine training facility at Falls Creek would “combine the current medical service and teaching arrangements with a new model for year-round sports training in a ‘clean' environment”.
