About Natalie Barker-Ruchti

Natalie Barker-Ruchti is Associate Professor in sport management and sport coaching, Örebro University, since February 2019. She holds a Bachelor of Physical Education from the University of Otago and a MA in Recreation and Leisure Studies from Victoria University of Wellington, both New Zealand. Natalie gained her PhD in Human Movement Studies at The University of Queensland, Australia in 2007.

Research

Natalie Barker-Ruchti’s research focuses on how sport participation at the junior and senior levels of elite sport affects athletes’ learning, identities, and lives, also upon retiring from sport. She has extensively researched the history and current situation of women’s artistic gymnastics and continues to examine how the health and wellbeing of gymnasts can be ensured.

Natalie is currently preparing the project ‘#gymnastalliance: An international study on women’s gymnasts speaking out about abuse’, which aims to examine the current global outpour of gymnasts disclosing abusive behaviours and practices (start January 2021).

Natalie is also a member of is the project ‘Education for sustainable sport management’, through which a competence-oriented sport management program will be developed. She is further involved in the project ‘Coaching with technology’, which examines the use of performance analysis technologies in high level soccer.

A research project that Natalie continues to lead at the University of Gothenburg is ‘Injury-free youth athletes: Towards best practice in Swedish sport’ (FIT project), which aims to develop interdisciplinary injury prevention strategies.
