Kilkenny's Arthur Lanigan-O'Keeffe

Ever wondered how much an Olympic needs to eat to stayed fuelled every day? Kilkenny's Arthur Lanigan O'Keeffe has the answer!

The two-time Olympian has posted a clever video on his YouTube page detailing just how much food is needed to keep an athlete going.

Lanigan-O'Keeffe, who is currently ranked Number Two in the world's Modern Pentathlon rankings, breaks down his daily routine in terms of training and refuelling. The regime clearly works - he won the gold medal at the Modern Pentathlon World Cup in Bulgaria during the Summer.

Turning food into fuel is driving Lanigan-O'Keeffe on for his next big target. Competing at Tokyo 2020, which would be his third Olympic Games, is the Kilkennyman's aim.
