activities, thus reducing the patient’s self-support. Therefore, COPD is not only a medical issue, but also a social challenge to the patient due to factors such as decreased quality of life, disablement and social isolation. Moreover, exacerbation of COPD symptoms leads to hospitalization of the patients and thus, demands greater funds to support treatment ( Decramer, 2015 ). Currently, COPD is perceived not only as a pulmonary disease, but more as a systemic disease affecting functioning of other organs, including locomotor system. Impaired functioning of skeletal

Quality Versus Quantity Debate in Swimming: Perceptions and Training Practices of Expert Swimming Coaches

the swimming community, this has been referred to as the debate over “Quality vs Quantity” ( Maglischo, 2003 ; Salo and Riewald, 2008 ). On the quality side of the debate, there is the suggestion that swimmers can reduce training mileage with no loss of endurance capacity if they perform their swimming intervals at faster speeds, whereas the quantity or HVT side suggests that more swimming mileage will produce greater endurance capacity and thus faster swimming times. A recently published systematic review by Nugent et al. (2016) investigated the effects of low

The El Dorado of Handball? Foreign Female Players Stay, while Domestic Players Return from Abroad

to research of Doupona Topič and Bon (2008) , the number of international transfers in men’s and women’s handball doubled in only three years (1999-2002) and in the next two years it further increased by more than 10%. The number of transfers thus increased from 3.579 in 1999 to 8.597 in 2004. In general, there is a large migration tendency in handball from Eastern and Southern Europe to Central and Northern Europe, where the organizational quality of the discipline is at a higher level. The migration of Danish female handball players is an interesting example
