BASES is extremely sad to learn of the passing of Prof Roger Eston FBASES. Roger was Research Professor at the University of South Australia. He was a great academic with expertise in a wide range of areas including kinanthropometry, muscle damage, paediatric exercise physiology, perception of effort, and measurement of physical activity.

Roger put people first, caring greatly about wellbeing and creating an environment in which colleagues were happy and could thrive, He made a huge impact on the discipline of sport and exercise sciences internationally and he will be greatly missed by the sport and exercise sciences community. BASES extends sincere condolences to his friends, colleagues and family.
