“Veggie” diet blamed for poor performance of China’s women volleyball team
Fearing tainted meat, China's women's volleyball team has stuck to a strict vegetarian diet for the last three weeks, which the team's coach is now blaming for his athletes' abysmal performance.
Fan of meat that I am, I don't see how it is all that necessary for a female volleyball player. Chicken, fish, whey protein, etc out to be enough for them maintain muscle mass I would think. For me, the biggest problem would be avoiding lard, which is my cooking oil of choice.
