    July 16, 1992

    Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

    In April of 1987 the First World Congress of Science and Football was held
    in Liverpool, England. The proceedings of this congress were published by
    E.& F.N. Spon in book called "Science and Football", which was edited by
    T. Reilly, A. Lees, K. Davids, & W.J. Murphy. This book contains valuable
    information concerning the biomechanics of the soccer kick. I am currently
    working on my thesis, which is an kinetic and kinematic examination of a soccer
    kick using 3D videography.

    I believe, but am not sure, that the Second World Congress of Science and
    Football has already taken place. If this is so, does anyone know how I might
    be able to get a copy of that Congress's proceedings. Any information would
    be greatly appreciated.
