Lima Charlie Sports is back! After a brief hiatus and completely ignoring topics like the NBA playoffs and the Stanley Cup, Mike and Steph link back up to talk about athlete weight issues, healthy eating, and food culture. They rehash a recent ESPNW article about weight pressures on female crew athletes, and Steph lends some expertise about how different weight classes contribute to the pressures. They discuss how sports like boxing, MMA, and crew with a defined weight limit are similar to the experience of dreading getting “taped” for weigh-ins in the military, and discuss what institutions can do to contribute to more healthy environments for athletes to balance competition and health. Also, hold your breath until the end, Mike and Steph actually agree on something!
