Abstract [en]

This paper aims at showing how the research program of one of the world’s most prominent physiology centers, the Royal Central Institute of Gymnastics (GCI) in Stockholm, was outlined during Eric Hohwü Christensen’s (1904-96) professorship, 1941-1969. How does a scientific environment like GCI, focused on basic, physiological research become famous for its impact in sports? What purpose did the researchers have to pursue this direction? What ideas about the human body enabled and shaped this kind of research? How did this research find its way to the practitioners, and how was it received?
