On stifling days at the beach or pool, with cool water beckoning, mother after mother admonished impatient children: "It isn't an hour yet!" Ah, the dreaded hour rule.

"My mother called me last week just to remind me," says Dr. Gord Sleivert, chuckling. Sleivert is a physiologist and vice-president of sports performance at the Canadian Sport Centre Pacific, a training facility in Victoria for elite athletes. He says Olympic swimmers are encouraged to have a little food before they compete. More
