Do elite athletes eat chocolate?

Published on: 11th February, 2021

Olympian Ellen White has become the all-time top goalscorer in the WSL this week. She's also been named in the England squad once more for the next international.

Paralympian Richard Whitehead is back from warm weather training with Tokyo in his sights.

The pair present their own podcast, Track and Ball, and they've been taking questions from schools in the last two episodes in the form of q and a's. And here are two entertaining snippets.

Firstly - do elite athletes each chocolate? And what chocolate do they like?

And then there's the uncertainty around Tokyo. How are they coping and what tips can they give.
