Sure, being an Olympic athlete takes stamina, strength and talent. But Kathy Searles, a local licensed registered dietitian, knows it also takes a good mix of food and fluids.
Searles recently attended a workshop at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, where she got an education in what athletes in each winter sport need for peak performance. Now, Searles, who is studying to become a certified specialist in sports nutrition through the American Dietetic Association, hopes to apply that knowledge in helping both elite, serious, and not-so-serious athletes maximize their potential.
