Lausanne (RWH) Athletes and support personnel are invited to the April edition of the ITA Education Webinar Series taking place on 27 April, from 14:00-15:30 (CET). Registration is open - see link below!
Focus of the webinar is on athlete nutrition and supplements. It will be examined how athletes can navigate between a food-first approach and dietary supplement options.
Nutrition expert Professor Ron Maughan will talk about the importance of an individual approach to nutrition and the food-first approach. Many athletes also use supplements, but this can be risky due to contamination and mislabelling of products. Abby Raymond, a weightlifter from the USA, will share her experience with contaminated supplements.
Finally, to help those athletes who choose to incorporate supplements into their regimen, Terence O’Rorke from Informed Sport will join the webinar to discuss supplement testing. While no supplement is 100% safe, Terence will speak about the steps athletes and their support personnel can take to greatly reduce the risk of supplement contamination.
