Watch race walkers Inaki Gomez, Jared Tallent and Evan Dunfee take part in a unique nutrition study during their training camp at the AIS.

AIS Head Nutritionist Louise Burke said the study – with one athlete having a high carbohydrate diet, another low carb/high fat food, and the final one having a periodised carb diet – could be adapted across a lot of endurance sports.


This study involves grant funding and collaboration with the Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research at Australian Catholic University.

“This is a very applicable study to a range of sports,” Burke said.
