About Georgia

Georgia is a sports scientist currently based in Canberra as a PhD Scholar at the Australian Institute of Sport and Central Queensland University. Her research focuses on the impact of sleep and daytime napping on athletic performance, as well as strategies to optimise athlete performance when travelling. Coming from a background as a netball athlete, Georgia has a passion for high-performance sport.

Since finishing a first-class honours degree in Sport Science, Exercise and Health from the University of Western Australia in 2013, Georgia has worked with elite, professional and Olympic athletes from a range of sports. When she is not researching, thinking about, or actually getting some sleep, she can be found coaching, hiking, camping or planning a new travel adventure.

Medical grade compression socks. I like the 2XU ones, you can view them here Click here. This sock is specifically designed for recovery, with a stronger compression fabric throughout the sock for enhanced circulation and blood lactate clearance after activity. Wear after training, competition or rehab, or on long flights to reduce the risk of DVT.
