It may sound like the start of a joke, but there’s no punchline (anyway, runner beans aren’t a typical breakfast staple!). In fact, sports nutrition is a very serious business. Whatever the level of competition, athletes and coaches know that results out on the track or field are achieved with the right training, and the right diet.
But what do athletes eat to perform at their best? Whether you are competing for the Olympics, a national level or even just trying to improve your fitness, here we take a look at what athletes should eat for breakfast to set themselves up for a day’s training or competition. After all, many races are decided by who gets the best start!
SPAR International are proud sponsors of European Athletics, an affiliation that has given us plenty of insight into athletes’ dietary requirements. So much so, you’ll find all the ingredients to whip up a breakfast fit for a champion, at your local convenience store.
