Nutrition: Around the Table with Michael Chadwick

After being part of an American record-setting 4×100 free relay in his international debut at the 2015 Duel in the Pool, then winning four medals at last December’s World Short Course Championships, University of Missouri senior Michael Chadwick is hungry for more collegiate and global swimming success. Let’s see what this sprinting stud consumes to keep his body moving at lightning speeds.

Chadwick explained to Swimming World’s Annie Grevers that,

Your body needs food to burn throughout a long workout, so you have to be smart about when and how much you eat. I know that in order to perform my best, I can’t be hungry in a workout. I always keep a PowerBar next to my equipment bag during practice—just in case I start to fatigue.
