Among other positions, Dr Hausswirth was head of the scientific and medical department of the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy and was director of the research department of the French National Institute of Sport (INSEP) for two decades, where he contributed to six Olympic Games. Since 1995, he has been a recognised physiologist focusing on recovery and nutrition for high-level athletes.

Having worked with over 300 top athletes and coaches in various individual and team sports, Dr Hausswirth has extensive experience as a sports physiologist. He is also a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance. In April 2013, he co-authored the book “Recovery and Performance in Sport” with I.
