How to make Cav’s favourite flapjack

Olympic cycling legend and BBC Sports Personality of the Year, Mark ‘Cav’ Cavendish, shares his secret weapon – his flapjack recipe.

Cav’s ‘how to’ video is part of The Food Champions Project, a collaboration between The National Lottery and the country’s top sports nutritionists from the English Institute of Sport (EIS) who work daily with many of GB’s leading Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

And, you too are an integral part of Team GB. Thanks to you, Lottery funding supports our 1,300 elite athletes on their Roads to Rio, allowing them to train full-time and have access to the best coaching, facilities and support in the world.

So on Saturday August 27th, we’re inviting everyone to take part in the nation’s biggest ever sports day. You’re invited to join our homecoming Olympic heroes and say ‘I Am Team GB’.

Brought to you by The National Lottery and ITV, I Am Team GB will feature thousands of fun, free events across the country. To celebrate the support you give Team GB by playing The National Lottery, our Olympians will be there too.

If you’d like to host an event at your local sports club, it’s free and easy to get involved – sign up here
