It's no mystery now why the athletes who won first prize in the Olympic Games were awarded a crown of olive leaves and a supply of olive oil - depending on the sport.
“The winner’s prize varied according to the event. The best runner received about 70 amphoras of 35-40 kilos, i.e. 2,500 kilos of olive oil, while the chariot-race winner got double, i.e. about 5,000 kilos. These prizes were worth a lot of money if you consider that a day’s wages for an Athenian craftsman was 1 Attic drachma, the equivalent of about 3 kilos of olive oil. And that was just the price of common oil, whereas the winner’s oil was much better quality and more expensive.” 
For athletes, it provides:
1. Energy - olive oil is a monounsaturated fat - a "good" fat that contributes to heart health and longevity. Where a sedentary person should consume no more than 15% of their calories from fats, an athlete requires 20% - 30% of their calories from fats. This is for high intensity, a running race, as well as low intensity and lengthy performance like marathons.
2. Antioxidants - high phenolic olive oil is rich in the antioxidant oleacein as well as other phenolic compounds. It is a bio available source of nutrients which cannot be matched by supplements.The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition further emphasizes the combating of free radical oxidants with a “diet rich in antioxidants” rather than in supplement form, especially for athletes.
3. Recovery - Rest and recovery for an athlete is probably when they make the most progress in their overall conditioning. The body is in repair mode and adapts to the increased activities and demands placed on body. This provides the strength so that the next day he or she can run a little further or faster than they did today.
The phenolic compound oleocanthal has proven anti-inflammatory properties and is being clinically studied for its likeness in effect to ibuprofen - without the side effects.
“Muscles take a beating during athletic training and events. Without adequate recovery, which includes repair, strengthening, and muscle building, no progress is gained. Olive oil steps it up in this role too. A 2009 study published in the journal Lipids, shows olive oil helps cells absorb cholesterol and convert it to testosterone better than other fat sources. Testosterone is critical to the body’s muscle building process as well as increasing energy levels.
Fats are also vital to the development, repair, and building of bone density which prevents and protects against fracture and injury. Olive oil in particular has the ideal make-up for bone health due to its unique combination of oleic acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids which work together to build bone tissue. This is vital for the athlete whose body is constantly in a state of work and recovery, allowing the body to regenerate and grow stronger.” 
The simple addition of olive oil - and we recommend high phenolic olive oil for its additional health benefits - to an athletes daily nutrition increases his or her stamina, energy, and recovery. It is effective ingested or used topically to relieve strains and muscle aches.
Try it for yourself and up your game - even if you are not competing with anyone at all.

A diet never tasted so great! My personal experience was dropping 3 dress sizes when I started taking a daily “shot” of high phenolic olive oil every morning on an empty stomach. I now mix it with the juice of a lemon for an amazing liver detox.
Polyphenol rich olive oil like The Governor Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil is high in the phenolic compounds oleocanthal an extraordinary anti-inflammatory and oleacein, an antioxidant.
I follow a predominantly plant based - what I like to call a “modified Mediterranean” diet, with all animal fat replaced by high phenolic olive oil. That means no other oils or butter. I cook with The Governor and know that the phenolic compounds transfer into the foods with only about a 20% loss of phenolic compounds.
High phenolic olive oil has a higher smoke point so is great for cooking. Roasting or sautéing in high phenolic olive oil makes food more satisfying with the result that you feel full with less food.
I use high phenolic olive oil liberally throughout the day – even on yogurt! My weight is stable, I feel great in my clothes and have unbounded energy.
Extra virgin olive oil stabilizes blood sugar and is heart healthy. It’s rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and is a great source of Vitamin E, fabulous for glowing skin and lustrous hair.
High phenolic olive oil may seem expensive because it is limited yield but is super charged with nutritional value. I want you to experience this for yourself. Give yourself three months of this regimen and let me know how you made out.
In health and happiness!
