How Team USA Athletes Fuel Their Path to the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in PyeongChang 2018
Did you know that the U.S. Olympic Training Centers serve tens of thousands of gallons of milk to Team USA athletes every year? Milk contains a package of nutrients that is hard to find in any other single food or beverage, a nutrient powerhouse that athletes trust — with 9 essential nutrients, including 8 grams of natural protein in every 8-ounce serving.
Team USA athletes have always trusted milk. In fact, 9 out of 10 U.S. Olympians and Paralympians said they grew up drinking milk,1 and many said their moms’ encouragement was the reason why milk was an important part of their diet.
KRC Research conducted an online survey among retired, current, and hopeful U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes on behalf of MilkPEP between February 23 and March 7, 2016. The U.S. Olympic Committee and its National Governing Bodies distributed e-mail invitations with a link to the survey to its retired, current, and hopeful athletes inviting them to participate. In total, across Olympic and Paralympic sports, 1,113 completed the ten-minute survey (675 Olympians, 93 Paralympians and 345 hopefuls in training).
*9 out of 10 finding based on 768 responses received from survey invitations sent to U.S. Olympians and Paralympians.
