AGM and Sports Nutrition Presentation

The AVOHK AGM 2023 will be held at Café 8 in Central at 7pm on Thursday, 8th June.

The meeting will be followed by a buffet meal, and we are also delighted to host a presentation about Sports Nutrition by Lisa Tarquini. A UK-registered nutritionist with an MSc in Exercise and Nutrition Science, Lisa has had a long career working with athletes of all levels. She was Sport Nutrition Manager at the Hong Kong Sports Institute for 6 years and, during that time, she worked closely with athletes on their journey to Asian Games and Olympic success. Lisa will be giving a presentation about sports nutrition and she will be happy to address any questions which runners may have.

Full notice of the AGM, along with proxy and nomination forms will be sent out to Club members this week.
