We are pleased to announce that the 2014 IRONMAN season has ended with stellar performances from Vector450 triathletes.
In the spring of 2013, IGY Life Sciences USA entered the triathlon world with one sponsored athlete: 11 time Kona age grouper, Patrick Schuster, who had just received his pro-card. The sponsorship included the use of Vector450, a recovery protein that works by providing significant support to the athlete’s overstressed immune system. Within a year, the word spread among Pro-Triathletes and the sponsored team grew to twelve members. By November 2014, our 12 sponsored pro athletes were feeling the difference and benefits of using Vector450 and were able to complete 130 races, with 55 top ten finishes, 8 wins, and 21 top 3 slots. The group also accounted for 8 course and run records.*
Based on the diverse group of athletes, these results were not expected. Our pro’s range from the seasoned to rookie triathletes, some of whom did their first long course race this season (140.6 mile distance). These statistics, according to the triathletes, was made possible by the incredible recovery that is provided by Vector450.
Highlights included five top-ten finishes at IRONMAN Wisconsin; a 3rd win for Chris McDonald at IRONMAN Louisville, and first IRONMAN win for Matt Hanson at Chattanooga. Matt had an amazing season with four full IRONMAN races, placing not lower than top 7, and set the course record in Chattanooga of 8:12:32.
“As a professor of exercise science, I understand how a strenuous event like an IRONMAN will compromise one’s immune system. To be able to race 4 IRONMAN’s in 6 months without any trace of illness is remarkable”, says Hanson.
At age 41, Richie Cunningham is senior statesmen of the group.
“I owe a lot of it to Vector450. It made me feel like I was 31 again.” Cunningham hit the podium four times and won two 70.3 distant events.
For Pro-Triathlete, Coach and owner of Team BSR (Big Sexy Racing), Chris McDonald, “The key to improvement as an athlete is consistently and the key to consistency is health! Vector450 is my key to keeping my immune system healthy and keeping me in the pool and on the road.” BSR has over 80 elite athletes, and 800 team members. Chris not only runs the team, he specializes in long course events of the 140.6 distance.
The premier IRONMAN event is the annual IRONMAN World Championships in Kona Hawaii where no American has stepped onto the podium since 2009. This year Ben Hoffman (pictured at left) changed that with his impressive 2nd place showing, coming out of nowhere to surprise the world with his hard charging run.
“Vector450 is my secret weapon” say’s Hoffman.
Vector450 continues to gain momentum and build awareness of its remarkable ability to enhance both recovery times and overall performance of athletes by rebalancing their overworked immune systems with its Muno-IgY based formula. If the goal is to finish top ten, then Vector450’s Power to Pursue is what you need. Vector450 has placed as many smiles on our athletes’ faces as athletes on the podium.
Congratulations to all our athletes as they continue to pursue their podium dreams!
