Taylor & Francis would like to congratulate Darren Stefanyshyn of the
University of Calgary, Canada and Co-Associate Editor of Footwear
Science (www.tandf.co.uk/journals/tfws) on winning the prestigious Jim
Hay Memorial Award from the American Society of Biomechanics.

This award is specified for a scientist who has carried out outstanding
research in sports biomechanics and includes a cheque for $1,000. The
award was established in 2004 and is named after Jim Hay, a leading
sports biomechanist, to whom Taylor & Francis published a tribute to in
Journal of Sports Sciences (Vol 20, Issue 12, December 2002, p1009),
written by Professor Bruce Elliott of University of Western Australia.

The latest newsletter of the American Society of Biomechanics included
passages in his nomination letter: "Dr. Stefanyshyn's contributions to
the biomechanics community have been virtually exclusively in the area
of sports biomechanics, specifically work related to improving
performance through optimizing shoe design in track sprinters, golf club
design for average and world class golf players, hockey sticks for
improving the accuracy and speed of slap shots, and a variety of
research related to the aerodynamic design and musculoskeletal support
of sportswear in athletes ranging from downhill skiers to speed skaters
and runners. Aside from an extensive list of high caliber publica-tions
in the area of sports biomechanics and an impressive list of invited and
keynote lectures at national and international scientific conferences,
Dr. Stefanyshyn has also contributed to national and international
govern-ing bodies of biomechanics in general and sport biomechanics
specifically. Dr. Stefanyshyn has an outstanding record of scientific
work in the area of sports biomechanics, he has served the biomechanics
communities nation-ally and internationally and has been an excellent
advocate for sport and exercise science around the world."(American
Society of Biomechanics, Vol 12, No. 1, June 2010, edited by Michelle

Upon receiving the award, Professor Stefanyshyn would like to thank the
American Society of Biomechanics, his nominators and his past and
present students and associates for their contributions to this award,
saying that he is honoured and is very grateful to the acknowledgement
of his peers for recognising him for this award.
