Swimmer Nutrition Tips with David Bryant, Catalyst Dietitian
Contrary to popular belief, quality training is not about who can do the most amount of training, on the least amount of fuel.
It's not about carbohydrates, protein or fat being superior to one another, it's about just eating food, real food.
It's also about manipulating your intake each day dependent on your training load and intensity of the session.
Medals for the 2018 Port to Pub, thanks to Blackmores Mentors
All successful swimmers across the finish line will receive a medal along with their towel and cap this year. The medal will be a reminder of your fantastic achievement making it across the Rottnest Channel from Leighton Beach to the Hotel Rottnest either as a solo swimmer or as a team member.
TAMS team swimming for Saba
We’re really pleased to have the TAMS Group back on board in 2018. Once again, the TAMS Tugboat will provide a highly visible waypoint at the 1500m mark of the race (swimmers must not proceed past this point until they’ve met up with their paddler and support boat).
MEET OUR SPONSORS: Austral Fisheries
We couldn’t be more grateful to Austral Fisheries, which has been a legacy sponsor and is continuing its support of the Port to Pub in 2018.

Nutritional Advice with David Bryant
NURITION ADVICE with David Bryant, Sports Dietitian, Catalyst Dietitian
Last year, my first nutrition tip was that 'you cannot out train a bad diet', so who remembers the alarming statistic I mentioned that just 4% of Australia achieve the recommended 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables each day?
