Topic: Race Day Nutrition
Renowned sport dietician Bob Seebohar and Olympian Sarah Haskins share on race-day nutrition. Seebohar discusses the talk down into four parts: fluids and electrolytes, fuel, ergogenic aids and real-life application. Specific information on assessing hydration status and fluid balance as well as pre, during and post race fluid recommendations, electrolytes and hyponatremia and muscle cramping will be presented.

Seebohar details real-life application looking at pre, during and post training nutrition needs highlighting fluid, carbohydrate, protein, fat and sodium recommendations. Haskins shares her thoughts on each topic, giving the viewer insight into the race-day nutrition plan for one of the world’s top triathletes.
