he introduced new techniques such as this one:
Wanderers players will this season be regularly stepping into a frost-lined chamber where the temperature has plunged to minus 120 degrees Celsius - far colder than Antarctica.
The radical treatment will enhance muscle recovery after training, claims Richard Freeman, Bolton's new head of sports science and medicine, and it is part of the new fitness regime.
Freeman said: "It's made from liquid nitrogen and liquid oxygen mixed to the right proportion to become liquid synthetic air. It's quite safe despite the temperatures.
"It's still in its infancy but players benefit. It's like stretching before a game. There's little scientific evidence why it works but it clearly does.
An ambitious doc he was:
Freeman said: "Training has changed. We do more gym sessions, hot and cold contrast bathing and the cryotherapy. When you're at the forefront you can refine it. You're always ahead of the game. But a lot of clubs will not be prepared to invest. They'll see it as a step too far until it has become mainstream in five years. That's a long time to hold an advantage.
...If I heard about a better-prepared team, I'd be very disappointed and I'd want to know why."
the wikipedia of bolton wanderers shows that the time with freeman as chief doctor (2001-2008) overlaps with one of the most successful periods in the history of the club
Between 2003–04 and 2006–07, Bolton recorded consecutive top-eight finishes, a record of consistency bettered only by the big four of Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.
Following Peters, Freeman also interviewed Leinders before Sky appointed him:
Freeman is also the guy who told Walsh that Froome's pre-2011-vuelta data show no (major) discrepancies wrt the vuelta and after.
What else do we have on this guy?
