BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
As the first woman to win a wrestling medal for Canada, Tonya Verbeek is a force to be reckoned with. The 55kg medalist is officially the most decorated Canadian wrestler of all time.
In 2004 Verbeek took home a Silver at the Athens games, and later went on to win bronze in the 2008 Summer Olympics and a second silver at the 2012 Olympics in London. To add to her legacy she has also won two bronze and a sliver at the world championships and has both a bronze and silver from the Pan American Games and Commonwealth Games. As any athlete would know, these are no easy feats. The amount of dedication, training and healthy eating that goes into becoming an Olympic athlete is staggering.
The Colorado State University states that athletes achieve peak performance by training and eating a variety of foods. Most success is gained from the carbohydrates that are stored in their body and use fat to provide fuel, but protein and water are critical nutrients for athletes as these directly affect how well their muscles perform and fatigue.
The level of nutritious knowledge that an athlete has directly influences how well an athlete performs. If the body is lacking energy, carbs and fuel it will perform under par.
After joining Wrestling Canada as a Talent Identification Coach, Verbeek was generous enough to take a break in her day to provide Kimurawear with two samples of her medal winning diets. You too can provide your body with the nutrition needed to push yourself further than you’ve ever gone before. Recipes are available at the bottom of this post.
