Impacts of COVID-19 on Professional Athletes: A Study by Strava and Stanford University
As the COVID-19 pandemic disrupts every element of daily life, professional athletes – who typically travel globally, train in close quarters, and rely on their physical health for their livelihoods – have been uniquely affected. To better understand the challenges professional athletes have faced, Strava partnered with Stanford University for a study of 131 professional athletes.
The results offer a lens into the disruptive nature of COVID-19 in the athletic community. While many of the professional athletes surveyed suffered new mental, financial and physical challenges, the study ultimately offers a picture of perseverance.
