Staying Healthy

To make sure you have the best possible experience at the FOBISIA Games please familiarise yourself with the safety information listed below.

Nutrition

From the moment you land in Shanghai we consider you a student-athlete. You should be treating your body like a professional sports person would by eating the correct amount of food. Make sure you eat at meal times (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and choose high energy foods (such as potatoes, pasta, rice, bread and vegetables).  Snacking regularly on healthy options (especially bananas) during the day will also help your body maintain its energy.  When thinking about sports drinks, you probably only need one during a day of competition.  Mix about three fingers of your sports drink with water and your body will maintain sensible sugar levels throughout the day.

Stay hydrated

Even though your visit to Shanghai may not have the same warmth of weather that you are used toit is very important to stay hydrated during your activities as this will help you perform better and avoid injury.  Make sure you drink plenty of water from the water coolers provided.  We recommend you drink around three litres of water per day to help maintain maximum efficiency in each sport.

Sports related injuries
  • Most sprains and injuries can be avoided by:
  • Correctly warming up and cooling down
  • Strapping or taping a previous minor injury
  • Using the correct sportswear, including shoes and protective items
  • If you do feel unusual discomfort or pain it is best to stop your activity and seek help. We have medical help at all sporting venues, please ask your coach as they will know the location.
