Discussion: BBC Article on Frequent Bone Fractures & Energy/Training Balance

The article is about a female GB Olympic rower, who suffered frequent rib fractures (last thing a rower needs!) that led to a unique combined project between GB rowing, researchers and sports scientists. The underlying problem was traced to Red-S (relative energy deficiency in sport) that can affect both men and women, for which there is a link in the article.

She's had no fractures in the last year and won a gold medal at the recent European Rowing Champs.
