Mark Tremblay (Team ABC3 Co-Investigator) examined handgrip strength and its association with cardiometabolic risk factors in a large sample for Canadian children and youth (Rioux et al., Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders, 2017). He also described sources of variability in obesity related variables in children aged 9-11 in 12 countries (Katzmarzyk et al., International Journal of Obesity, 2017).
