Tommy Bowe’s Bodycheck

Tommy Bowe’s Bodycheck explores the science and physiology of the International rugby winger, as well as providing a unique insight into what it takes to rise to the top of the modern game of professional rugby.

This sports science documentary chronicles the sporting-life and season of one of our top sportsmen as he makes his return from injury to play for his country. Along the road to recovery, Tommy is tested through cutting edge sports science experiments to uncover what makes him the elite sportsperson he is, from grueling pre-season training to full match fitness. And, just as Tommy returns to elite performance, his Six Nations hopes are dashed when he suffers a serious injury.
