Olympic champion national archer Mete Gazoz said that nutrition is very important in sports.
At the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, Mete, who brought Turkey the first medal in archery by becoming the champion, made a statement to the AA correspondent on the occasion of 6 June Dietitians Day.
Emphasising the importance of nutrition and professional support in sports, Mete said, "Nutrition is the most challenging part of this job. There are foods that everyone likes or dislikes. In general, things that are beneficial to health do not taste good. We may have a little trouble in that direction. If you want to be successful in sports, you have to eat the foods you don’t like. Sometimes it is very difficult not to eat dessert. Since you are progressing in line with your goals, you have to control yourself in this regard. We have a programme that takes everything into consideration."
