Esports performance company G-Science has announced a partnership with GamersOrigin, a French esports organisation that was founded in 2014.
G-Science has joined as a health and performance partner in time for GamersOrigin’s foray into the European Masters, following its win in the LFL—the premier League of Legends competition in France.
GamersOrigin fields eight teams in various esports, but its League of Legends squad has been on the rise in recent months. In an announcement on its website, G-Science revealed that it had been providing the organisations’ League team with “sport science support” before and during the LFL Spring playoff finals.
Yann-Cédric Mainguy, Sports Director at GamersOrigin, stated: “We’ve been working with G-Science for more than a month and we have already been able to witness results in the team. We came back from an up-and-down split to win the LFL and enter the EUM in the best conditions. With the current situation where players are playing from home, it’s good to know that we can monitor their daily lives and training with such professionals.”
G-Science’s post describes how the screening was “a great opportunity to set the foundations in terms of team culture and values. “It also reveals that a performance audit was conducted, with areas ripe for optimisation highlighted, alongside an analysis of players’ ergonomics and seating positions. G-Science’s support has now transitioned to operate remotely due to the current situation with Covid-19.
Jamie Kiff, Co-founder of G-Science, outlined the role he expected his company to play throughout EU Masters: “It has been amazing to have been able to support the team throughout this process and we’re delighted to officially announce the performance partnership ahead of the European Masters.
“This will be an increasingly stressful time for the players with several games being played over a short period against formidable opponents. As such, the goal of the partnership will be to ensure that the players are physically and mentally prepared for whatever is thrown at them and provide them with the gold standard of sport science support.”
