Abstract: This study aims to evaluate the knowledge of sports nutrition among Congolese students of typical sports courses. Method: A total of 140 students enrolled in sports-type courses (aged 23.90 ± 3.07 years) constituted the sample for this cross-sectional study conducted at Marien Ngouabi University.

It included 24 questions with 59 items covering four different sections: macronutrients (29 items), micronutrients (19 items), hydration (8 items) and periodicity of food intake (3 items). All data were processed by using SPSS 26.0 Software. The significance difference was set at p < 0.05. Results: Knowledge of sports nutrition (mean overall score = 29.17 ± 4.70 and adequate response rate = 12%) was very low. Similarly, Knowledge for macronutrient, micronutrient, hydration and periodicity of food intake were also very low.
