Diet significantly influences athletic performance. An adequate diet, in terms of quantity before, during and after training and competition will maximize the performance. In athletic events of high intensity and long duration such as multiple sprint and endurance sports, performance is generally limited by carbohydrate availability. High carbohydrate diets maximize glycogen stores and improves performance in such activities.
