Frattaroli Scores DCNI Sports Nutrition Award

Nicholas Frattaroli is the worthy recipient of The Dairy Council for Northern Ireland ‘Sports Nutrition Award’, which is given to the Ulster University student who receives the highest mark in their MSc in Sports and Exercise Nutrition.

Speaking about the award Nicholas commented, 

“Having worked for Manchester City FC as a Lifestyles Coach in the local community, I developed a very strong academic interest in muscle health and nutritional research involving resistance training. I feel strongly about high quality protein meals, and the impact they can have on health and metabolism. I was therefore delighted to receive this award as I feel dairy has a key role to play not only in optimising sports performance, but also in healthy aging for muscle and bone. 

I would like to thank the staff at Ulster University, who have helped with my development over the year and I am looking forward to putting this great knowledge into practice in my future PhD research career”.

MSc Course Director at Ulster University, Dr Andrea McNeilly added: 

“This is a fantastic achievement for Nicholas and recognises his hard work during the past year.”

Commenting on the award Dr Mike Johnston, MBE Dairy Council Chief Executive said, 

“We are delighted to be working with the School of Sport and through this award wish to encourage excellence in both research and the education of the sports and exercise nutritionists of tomorrow. I would like to congratulate Nicholas and look forward to seeing the next batch of talented students coming through the course in 2021.”

The Award is part of the Dairy Council’s ‘Milk It’ programme which aims to communicate the importance of good nutrition for sports and a healthy, active lifestyle, including the potential role of milk.
