Elite Athletes and the Importance of Sleep

"Sleep, eat and swim.  It's all I can do" - Michael Phelps

"I think sleep is so important because I break my body down so much with my sport.  It's the only place to get the recovery that I need" - Tom Brady

“Sleep is extremely important to me – I need to rest and recover in order for the training I do to be absorbed by my body” – Usain Bolt

"For me, sleeping well could mean the difference between putting up 30 points and living with 15" - Steve Nash

"If I don't sleep 11-12 hours a day, it's not right" - Roger Federer

"I love to sleep" - Lindsey Vonn

“Sleep is huge in my sport. Recovery is the limiting factor, not my ability to run hard. I typically sleep about eight to nine hours a night.” — Olympic marathoner Ryan Hall

Sleep is a 'weapon'.  Sleep is a key pillar in improving health and performance. - Seattle Seahawks

“I think sleep is just as important as [diet and exercise]” – Grant Hill

"Recovery is as important as training.  But not recovery in the sense most people understand it.  If your brain is working while you are recovering, it means that you're actually not recovering at all. Quality recovery is training." - Moses Kiptanui

"During the periods when I train hardest, I spend sixteen hours a day in bed." - Lornah Kiplagat

"Without proper sleep, I wasn’t able to think as quickly or clearly, which is critical when you’re flying through the air upside down.  During competition and training, I made sure to get at least eight hours of sleep and more whenever possible." - Shannon Miller
