The use of Microsoft Teams and Zoom has opened up new opportunities for our students to engage with quality speakers online as part of their course content. Our HSC PDHPE students have recently been learning about nutritional considerations in sports performance. As part of their research, they needed to compare the dietary requirements of athletes from different sports. Who better to speak with about this topic other than Alumni Josh Katz (Judo Olympian) and Tim Anstee (Australian Men’s Rugby 7’s representative). Josh and Tim, both from the Class of 2015, welcomed the opportunity to give the Class of 2020 a comprehensive insight into the pre, during and post competition dietary requirements relevant to their sports. Thanks Josh and Tim, we greatly appreciated the time you gave our HSC PDHPE students. We hope to conduct more interviews with industry experts in the future and provide our students with access to extremely valuable resources and insights.
(Josh is a Judo Olympian having represented Australia at the Rio games in 2016 and is aiming to qualify for Tokyo next year. Tim has been a part of the Australian Men’s Rugby 7s’ squad for the past 4 years, having competed on the World Series circuit, at the Sevens World Cup and at the Commonwealth Games in 2018.)
