Dr Dominique Condo and Kris Hinck are in a unique position to comment on the experiences and differences between professional AFL and basketball players when it comes to injuries, sleep, and nutrition. Dr Condo is a lecturer in sports nutrition at Deakin University, and is also the sports dietitian for the Geelong Cats Football Club and the WNBL’s Deakin Melbourne Boomers. Hinck is a lecturer in applied exercise and sports science at Deakin University and the performance specialist for the Australian men’s national basketball team, the Australian Boomers.
