Fuel My Friday: Archie Goodburn's High-Protein Smoothie

21 Oct 2022

Ahead of the FINA Swimming World Cup in Berlin this week, Breaststroke-specialist Archie Goodburn spoke to us about his Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie, powered by Spirulina.

Archie's 2022 season saw him make his Commonwealth Games debut for Team Scotland, reaching the Semi-Final of both the 50m and 100m Breaststroke, and taking 6th place in the Mixed 4x100m Medley Relay. 

The 2019 world and European junior medallist understands how important it is to optimise recovery between his training and races, and one of his big go to snacks is a PB and bananna smoothie with a twist - added spirulina powder for a high protein plant-based kick!
