Dairy Council NI Sports Nutrition Award

Michael Diamond 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 Michael commented, 

“I have had long–standing interest in Nutrition for many years and really welcomed the opportunity to study with Ulster University. I would like to extend my gratitude to the lecturers and team for the excellent MSc that they delivered over the past year. The course broadened my understanding of Nutrition, in particular its key role in both sport and performance. I am very grateful to receive this award and look forward to putting this knowledge into practice with athletes in the future.”

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

“This is a fantastic achievement for Michael and recognises his hard work during the past year, especially given the challenges we have all experienced during the COVID–19 pandemic.”

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 research and in the education of the sports and exercise nutritionists of tomorrow. I would like to congratulate Michael and look forward to seeing the next batch of talented students coming through the course in 2022.”

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.
