What Drives the Connection Between Eating Disorders and Certain Sports?
In her 2010 book Age Is Just a Number, swimming legend Dara Torres chronicles her all-consuming battle with bulimia during college. “I was extremely dark and moody,” she writes. “Pretty much all I thought about during college was what I ate, what I wanted to eat, what other people ate, what I’d need to do to get rid of the calories I’d ingested, how much exercise I got, and how I would look in my swimsuit when I mounted the blocks.”
While Torres has now recovered from her eating disorder from college days, when she was one of the nation’s best swimmers, she is among a special group vulnerable to eating disorcers: Athletes. High-profile athletes like gymnast Shawn Johnson, swimmer Amanda Beard and tennis star Monica Seles have all come forward with histories of this type of psychological disorder, particularly damaging to young competitive athletes.
In a 2004 study, researchers looked at the rates of EDs among athletes compared to non-athletes, and found that prevalence was higher in the more active set. Eating disorders were more common among women, and within lean- and weight-dependent sports like swimming, wrestling, gymnastics, and running. Roughly 35 percent of female athletes were high-risk for developing anorexia, and 38 percent for bulimia.
Certain sports — especially Olympic favorites like swimming, gymnastics, and track — provide the perfect conditions for an ED to take hold, according to Claire Mysko, CEO of the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA). “Participants in sports that emphasize appearance, weight requirements or muscularity, such as gymnastics, diving, dance, bodybuilding, crew or wrestling, are particularly at risk,” she tells Yahoo Beauty. “Athletes in endurance sports, and sports that focus on the performance of the individual rather than a team — track and field, running, swimming, for example — are also at increased risk.”
This was definitely the case with former Olympic gold-medalist swimmer Misty Hyman, who suffered from disordered eating during her teenage years.
“Competitive swimming can be really extreme — you’re training a lot,” Hyman said earlier this month, according to USA Today. “You do have to have a lot of calories. You do end up with shoulders that are bigger than the average woman, sometimes bigger than your guy friends… Now, I see that as something that’s beautiful and strong, and I celebrate that. When I was a teen it was very hard to separate those ideas of what femininity is, what beauty is and what my identity was in relation to that as an athlete.”
Athletes are often operating in taxed, rigid conditions to train for their sport, dealing with the can-do-anything drive to alter their nutrition and appearance for desired results — making an eating disorder easy to develop, yet trickier to track and treat. They can hide in plain sight. While extremism is often lauded in competitive sports as a mechanism to get to the top, it’s also a key reason an ED can slide past friends, family and coaches, according to Jennifer Carter, PhD, Director of Sport Psychology at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and a former college swimmer.
