“Working with TASS over the past four years has given me the opportunity to work with a wide variety of athletes, performing at different levels, in different sports, with different needs. This has highlighted both the similarities and differences that athletes face when it comes to the role of nutrition in preparation, training and recovery.
“With the support of TASS I’ve been able to observe and discuss nutrition protocols with Team GB and speak to highly experienced nutritionists. This not only ensures protocols at my TASS Delivery Site are in line with elite pathways, but also supports my own professional development as a dietitian in performance sport.
“Dual career athletes are trying hard to juggle many aspects of life; often balancing work, studies and families with their athletic pursuits; being able to offer them evidence based nutrition guidance will give them the greatest opportunity to excel in their sport.
“My favourite aspect of being a TASS practitioner is working with a range of athletes and seeing them develop and grow, both in their sports and in performing elite athlete behaviours.
“TASS has given me an incredible opportunity to work alongside over 60 elite athletes and an incredible multi-disciplinary team. The experience I have gained from both the athletes and practitioners is unlike any setup I would find elsewhere.”
