NSWIS Awards celebrate the best of 2018

This year’s highest achieving athletes, coaches and support staff have been honoured at the 2018 NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) Awards held at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Headlining the night’s winners was canoe slalom star Jessica Fox who capped off an historic season of competition by taking out the prestigious Office of Sport Female Athlete of the Year award.

Kurt Fearnley named NSW Australian of the Year

Wheelchair track & road athlete Kurt Fearnley has been named the NSW Australian of the Year for 2019. The announcement was made on Monday evening at a ceremony held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney.

Anti-Doping | 2019 list of Prohibited Substances released

The 2019 list of Prohibited Substances becomes active on 1st January 2019. Athletes are advised to check any supplements or medications they are taking against this list and either stop using them or apply for exemptions as necessary using the Therapeutic Use Exemption process as appropriate.

Food choices for the run-in to competition

Accumulating fuel stores to be used in competition does not happen in just one meal. Specific to the workload you have ahead of you, a plan of regular meals and snacks spaced out over the days prior to competition should be followed rather than one large meal the night before competition as the increased load on digestion may interfere with sleeping patterns.

8 nutrition niggles for athletes to look out for

It’s a familiar scenario for athletes. You complete a training session and then later that day you pull up sore with a niggle.
