Just a quick poll. How much sleep do World Class or National Class athletes get while in serious training. I remember reading Salazar slept 8 hours a night, Derek Clayton only slept 6 hours, Liquori liked 9+ hours. I was told by his teammates at Florida, Dennis Mitchell only got 3 or 4 hours per night. Anyone know the sleep habots of any of the top guys today?
I know of a master's thesis done a few years ago of sleep habits of "national class" and "world class" collegiate track and field athletes. Let me know if you're interested, I'll tell you about it and if you're interested you might request it on inter-library loan.
