In this case study focusing on possibilities of influencing sport performance, two scholars from the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport, Charles University, address the methods that resulted in limit performance in runners of 800 meters and the 3000m steeplechase, based on a detailed analysis of the evidence of the training load and completed races as compiled by the monitored athletes and their trainer. This allowed them to demonstrate the importance of systematic planning and evaluation of training for sports, and describe the path that led to breaking national records and the athletes’ participation in prestigious international sporting events.
