This is...

Wilson’s ‘Recovery Water’ plug sends the wrong message

Professional athletes are often an eccentric group. They can be superstitious, paranoid, prone to bouts of mega-ego and shattered confidence and to saying things that those of us outside of their insular world can consider to be remarkably strange.
