Early specialisation in sports poses risk of burnout among young athletes

In a commentary, SMU Associate Professor of Strategy & Entrepreneurship (Education) Kenneth Goh discussed why early specialisation in sports poses a risk of burnout among young athletes. He also discussed how early specialisation reflects broader societal mindsets that are detrimental to talent development, and concluded there was a need for societal mindsets to shift towards longer-term and more holistic development to reduce talent attrition caused by burnout.
