Coined the queen of sports nutrition in Australia, Louise Burke has had a career nothing short of stellar. After a light bulb moment as a student when she realised she could indulge her interest in sport in her professional life, Louise went on to spend three whole decades at the AIS. Although she defines herself only as a hobbyist researcher, Louise has had a tremendous impact on the nutrition science behind many different sporting disciplines. She's worked closely with the best of the best elite athletes and is even linked to many Olympic gold medals! In this podcast, Louise walks us through her incredible contributions to the field of sports nutrition - and the dietetic profession as a whole - and explains why she's looked at the COVID pandemic as a time in which an old dog can learn some new tricks.
