RDs Helped Olympians Prepare, Compete

A recent article in the e-newsletter of Sports Dietetics-USA Score, a subgroup of the Sports, Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition dietetic practice group, details the invaluable assistance provided by Academy members to U.S. athletes at the 2012 Olympic Games.

According to the article, five sports dietitians worked with athletes and the U.S. Olympic Committee, "helping to prepare the athletes for this culminating competition in unique ways and will continue that support during the Games." The members profiled in the article are:

  • Andrea Braakhuis, PhD, APD, was "the USOC sport dietitian for strength and power sports. (She supported) support track and field, one of the largest athlete delegations who qualified for the Games."
  • Shawn Dolan, PhD, RD, CSSD, the USOC sport dietitian for team sports, worked "primarily with the water polo and volleyball team sport athletes... (focusing) on making sure pre- and post-fueling regimens are ideal during their tough competition schedule..."
  • Jennifer Gibson, MSc, RD, "the USOC sport dietitian for acrobat and combat sports...(assisted ) the wrestlers on a daily basis in London to ensure they make weigh-in."
  • Alicia Kendig, MS, RD, CSSD, is the USOC sport dietitian for winter sports and some Paralympic sports. "She has worked closely with para-swimming athletes to dial-in training meals, hydration and recovery habits."
  • Nanna Meyer, PhD, RD, CSSD, who "has worked extensively with sport dietitians from other countries on the village dining menu. In addition, she has set up recovery stations at various venues and locations to ensure recovery nutrition options are available to Team USA athletes regardless of whether they have sport dietitian support or not."

"In addition, all sport dietitians worked closely with the USOC dining staff at our High Performance Training Center where many of the athletes came for training sessions or to relax and have meal. A lot of preparation went into developing a menu and securing foods that are sustainable, local, and organic for high performance meals!"
