Starosta presented with the United States Sports Academy’s Distinguished Service Award

Dr. Wlodzimierz Starosta was presented with the United States Sports Academy’s Distinguished Service Award over the weekend in conjunction with the International Association of Sport Kinetics cyclical international conference, ‘Sport Kinetics 2015’.

The award was presented to Dr. Starosta by the vice-director of Józef Piłsudski University of Physical Education in Warsaw, Dr. Jerzy Sadowski and general secretary of the International Association of Sport Kinetics, Dr. Jan Konarski.

The DSA is given annually to those individuals who have made outstanding contributions to national or international sport through education, research or service. The DSA is separate from the Academy’s Awards of Sport. Each nominee must possess an extensive background in sport, which means that the individual must have had significant dealings in instruction, research or service in sport for more than 10 years.

Starosta’s impact has stretched over five decades. He is the first president of the International Association of Sport Kinetics (IASK), a scientific organisation started in 1990 whose aim is to create appropriate conditions for the advancement of human development and sport kinetics as a scientific discipline, which constitutes a fundamental element in sciences related to sport. The intent, through the sharing of information, is to gain a better understanding of human movement and physical fitness and promote each.
