That several Aussie players shun carbohydrates and sports drinks in favour of a whole foods, higher fat diet to fuel their performance is.
To my knowledge, this is the first time a team in any sport will contest a world final with a significant number of their players relying on a low carbohydrate, high fat fuelling strategy.
If Australia wins the scientists will tell us it's an anecdote. Should New Zealand prevail, it will be "told you so."
In Run on Fat, the Aussie team doctor Dr Peter Brukner (co-author of Clinical Sports Medicine - the accepted "bible" for sports medics), calls this fuelling approach a 1% er.
The big win for Brukner's belief system is coming soon. It may come as early as Sunday. It may not.
Dr Peter Brukner and Australia cricketers Shane Watson and David Warner feature in Cereal Killers 2: Run on Fat.
