Season1 #Episode 3: Napping and Jet Lag in Elite Athletes with Georgia Romyn

August 7, 2017

In this episode I speak with Georgia Romyn. This podcast was recorded at the Working Time Society (WTS) conference at the stunning Uluru in central Australia.

Georgia is a sport scientist currently based in Canberra as a PhD Scholar at the Australian Institute of Sport and Central Queensland University. Her research focuses on the impact of sleep and daytime napping on athletic performance, as well as strategies to optimise athlete performance when travelling. Coming from a background as a netball athlete, Georgia has a passion for high performance sport. Since finishing a first-class honours degree in Sport Science, Exercise and Health from the University of Western Australia in 2013, Georgia has worked with elite, professional and Olympic athletes from a range of sports. When she is not researching, thinking about, or actually getting some sleep, she can be found coaching, hiking, camping or planning a new travel adventure.

Wear after training, competition or rehab, or on long flights to reduce the risk of DVT.
