THE EDGE: Nutrition fuels high performance for Union's Haris Medunjanin

The Edge presented by AdvoCare, highlights five keys to success: technology, preparation, recovery, nutrition and training.

In this episode, we highlight NUTRITION and hydration as key building blocks for high performance, starring Philadelphia Union midfielder Haris Medunjanin.

The Bosnian veteran explains his dietary habits and their impact on his play, while Kellsey Frank, the Union's sports dietitian, and Garrison Draper, Philly's performance director, explain the principles and techniques that guide their efforts to fuel the players for maximum competitive output. 

With the Union in their biggest game in MLS history, an Eastern Conference Semifinal clash against Atlanta United on Thursday (8 pm ET | ESPN2 in US; TSN4, TVAS in Canada), Medunjanin will need to be properly fueled and at his best to help knock off the defending MLS Cup champs.
