Delayed Growth From Sports?

Postby Sigfrid » Wed Oct 18, 2017 7:00 am

I have figure skated all my life at the competitive level, (novice/junior) and then I ruptured a disk. I lived out of the country, and when I arrived for college, my diet completely changed to American food. (even if I don't eat meat) I'm 19 years old, and I grew four inches in the one year I was in the country. Is it possible that my growth spurt was from the change in diet in food, or because my growth was being suppressed by jumping so much in my sport?

Exercise doesn't stunt growth, but poor diet does. Also, you might simply have experienced an adolescent growth spurt completely unrelated to diet.
