Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine knowledge, attitudes and practices on hydration and fluid replacement among endurance sports athletes in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). This study was also to identify the relationship among these parameters. A total of 80 UKM endurance sports athletes were involved in this study. Data collection was conducted using anthropometric measurements and questionaires. Anthropometric measurements included height, weight and body composition using bioimpedance method. Socio-demographic information, hydration knowledge, attitudes and practices were collected using questionnaires. The mean age of athletes was 22.0±2.6 years. The mean score for knowledge, attitudes and practices of subjects towards hydration was 74.1 ±10.1, 60.9±20.3 and 76.1 ±14.6%, respectively with higher scores indicating positive hydration knowledge, attitudes and practices. Knowledge did not show a significant correlation with practices (r = 0.126, p>0.05) but significant correlation with attitudes (r = 0.285, p0.05). Only the mean score of knowledge was significantly different between male and female (p
