Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, May 29, 2008 – SoLo Powered elite and professional athletes continue to gain momentum in the competitive and challenging quest for spots on both the Olympic Team and in the NBA finals. Representing their country at the Olympics or respective team in the NBA finals is the pinnacle of success for these world-class athletes and having the correct fueling plan is paramount to achieving success in their sport. SoLo’s Controlled Energy Response™ Technology delivers a slow and steady release of fuel; providing lasting energy and enhanced endurance, allowing the athletes to perform at their best, over extended periods of time. The ease of digestion and palatability also affords the athletes the luxury of eating the bars frequently, providing a steady stream of energy to fuel their rigorous workouts and competition, while avoiding abdominal discomfort in the process.
SoLo Powered Elite Athletes to watch in their quest for the Beijing Olympics are:
1) Canadian Paul Tichelaar is the 5th ranked triathlete in the world and is heading into the World Championships in Vancouver with the confidence of a champion. Canada is one of the strongest triathlon countries in the world, with Sydney Olympic Gold Medalist Simon Whitfield leading the charge. The Vancouver race will be one of Paul’s best chances of making the Olympic dream.
2) Megan Metcalfe, World Ranked Track Runner, recently won the 3000m at the Adidas Track Classic in Carson, California where her time of 8:51.97 was the fastest time in the world in the 2008 outdoor season. Megan will now travel to the competitive outdoor season in Europe to attempt to secure her spot on the Canadian Olympic team.
3) Josh Simpson, Nationally Ranked U.S. Track Runner, achieved the 6th best time in the U.S. this year with 28:22 in the 10 000m. Josh will be heading to the U.S. Olympic Trials in Eugene Oregon in June, feeling confident that he will make the U.S. Olympic team. Josh will be up against America’s best and needs a top three finish in Oregon to make the team.
“In the sport of triathlon it is vital to have sustained energy throughout the race. SoLo bars have allowed me to find the necessary fuel at the end of races to give me a boost on the run. I need to know that I will be able to perform when needed; eating SoLo bars gives me that confidence and energy late in a race. Thanks SoLo”, said Paul Tichelaar, Triathlete: Ranked 5th in the world, 2nd in Canada
