A Coggle Diagram about Findings (visible role models, athletes living in an integrated and co-ordinated environment, environment allowed space to have other personal identities and encouraged them to develop skills that are applicable to life and sport, training was organised to allow for some element of diversification e.g. cross country skiing in winter, swimming competitions in off season etc., environment values hard work but teaches athletes to listen to their body, strong and cohesive organisational culture and willing to be uncompromising to meet future demands), Methods (ethnographic study grounded in a constructivist paradigm, case was the wang programme in Norway, data collected through interviews (11), observation and document analysis and Analysis was carried out using a 5 stage approach
1) all interviews transcribed
2) all material was coded using a deductive-inductive approach
3) all interviews were subject to meaning condensation
4) summary of each node was written
5) empirical versions of both working models were created), Future research (EPEs v ATDEs, combine holistic life span approach with a holistic ecological approach so as to investigate how the environment develops over time to accommodate the needs of the athletes and problematic sport environments that despite favourable conditions, do not transition athletes), Questions (a) provide a holistic desription of a successful ATDE and examine factors influencing its success in developing prospective elite paddlers), Framework (ATDE and ESF) and Limitations (1) not possible to establish a rigorous causal relationship that allows us to point exactly which environmental qualities are responsible for success - this should be considered as a natural consequence of the complexity of the ATDE 2) studies from different sports, outside scandinavia that are team based need to be studied)
