Over 50 athletes, parents and coaches from Bicester AC and Bicester Tri Junior attended a presentation given by Dr Alaaddine El-Chab, a senior lecturer in clinical and sports nutrition, held on Thursday 24th January at the new Kingsmere Community Centre. This was the first ever presentation of its type given to club members. The presentation lasted two hours and covered a number of areas. As this was a presentation given to budding sportsmen, the emphasis was on healthy eating and drinking to maintain levels of athletic performance. The presentation was very well received by coaches and athletes alike and will prove invaluable for the remainder of the cross country and indoor athletics season as well as the upcoming track and field season.
This is the first time the two clubs had combined to organise such an event and both clubs would like to thank England Athletics for arranging for Dr El-Chad to come and talk to us.
