PureSport Performance Sports Drink

PureSport Performance Sports Drink

There is a new sports drink that has been making waves of late.  Gatorade has long been the drink of choice for athletes but now PureSport is here to provide a new class of sports drink.  Unlike traditional sports drinks that rely on simple sugars and carbohydrates PureSport stands alone due to its protein content.  PureSport features a performance tested 2.67:1 Carb to Whey Protein ration that offers the ultimate one-two punch.  The carbs provide instant energy while the protein acts as a reserve tank of fuel.  Together they sustain your energy, increase your endurance and help your muscles recover no matter how hard you push yourself.  PureSport is the performance sports drink of choice for numerous Olympians such as Brendan Hansen, Nastia Liukin and Michael Phelps.

PureSport Workout

PureSport Workout is a rehydration drink for the athlete in motion.  The workout mixture replaces lost fluids and electrolytes, restores fuel during exercise for more energy and improved performance, and enhances recovery with added protein.  Each serving of PureSport Workout contains just 80 calories and 6 grams of protein.  The unique mix of carbohydrate and protein promotes better fuel utilization and reduces muscle damage.  Such benefits are not available with carbohydrate only sports drinks.  PureSport Workout dramatically enhances exercise results by improving endurance and reducing muscle tissue damage.  PureSport Workout is available in four flavors including Grape, Banana Berry, Lemon Lime, and Fruit Punch.

PureSport Recovery

PureSport Recovery is formulated to help your body recover quickly and bounce back after a tough workout.  The recovery mixture accelerates the replacement and storage of muscle fuel.  Each serving of PureSport Recovery contains 46 grams of carbohydrates and 18 grams of protein.  The protein supply reduces muscle damage and induces muscle repair.  When taken within 15 minutes after exercising the protein and carbohydrate mix greatly improves muscle recovery over that experienced with carbohydrate only sports drinks.  This is the ideal sports drink to get you ready for your next workout.  PureSport Recovery is available in four flavors including Grape, Banana Berry, Lemon Lime, and Fruit Punch.

He will be promoting the PureSport™ Nutritional Performance Sports Drinks with Protein.

Background of Brendan Hansen:

Brendan Hansen was born on August 15, 1981 in Philadelphia, PA. Brendan began swimming at the age of 5; very young, like most of the world’s elite swimmers. When he was as young as 12, Brendan commanded the attention of all those who watched him swim. They would talk. They would watch closely. They knew they were seeing something special when he swam. Brendan was aware of the extra attention and embraced it as he continued to impress. By the time he was a freshman in high school he had already won his first state championship. The hype only built from there on out.

While swimming in high school, Brendan dominated the 100 Breast; winning the state championship all for of his high school years. Brendan’s list of accolades are nearly endless. High school All-American honors. National Age Grounp records. A national championship in the 200 Breast in 1999. All leading Brendan to the national and international ranks of the swimming world.

Brendan graduated from Haverford High School in 2000, and set his sights on competing in his first Olympic Trials. He finished 3rd in both the 100 and 200 Breast events, narrowly missing an Olympic birth. But Brendan was not discouraged. He used the events as both a learning experience and motivation for the future. His times at the Olympic Trials were personal bests and spoke volumes to his previous training and potential in the future. Brendan was already looking forward to starting the next stage of his life: NCAA competition at the University of Texas. After all, he had to do his part to defend their national championship.

During his first season swimming for the UT Longhorns, Brendan made his presence well-known. He won four NCAA titles (two individual, two relay) and four NCAA All-America honors at the NCAA Championships that year. Pretty impressive for a freshman!

Brendan continued to excel at the collegiate, but was also making a name for himself both nationally and internationally. The next year, in 2001, he broke the 200 Breast American Record at spring nationals and at the World Championships, Brendan won his first international medal by winning the 200 Breast.

The honors, records, and impressive times continued throughout the next few years. After Brendan’s final year of college eligibility (2004) he turned pro to prepare for the 2004 Olympic Trials. But before he did so he became the third man in history to accomplish a career sweep in two events (100 & 200 Breast) at the collegiate level. Brendan concluded his college swimming career with 13 total NCAA titles. His other honors, while swimming for the University of Texas, included NCAA All-American, Big 12 Conference Swimmer of of the Year, Big 12 Conference Newcomer of the Year, plus countless meet and pool records.

The Olympic Trials, in the summer of 2004, were far from a repeat of the 2000 event. Brendan not only qualified for the Athens Olympics in both the 100 and 200 Breast, but he set new world records in both events. This definitely was Brendan’s breakout year!

In Athens, Brendan collected medal of each variety in each of his events. He won a silver medal 100 Breast, a bronze in the 200 Breast, and a gold in the world-record setting 400 Medley Relay. Two months after Athens, Brendan competed in the Short Course World Championships and came away from that meet with 4 gold medals (50, 100, 200 Breast and 400 Medley Relay).

Even after all the success of 2004 and 2008, Brendan Hansen is still hungry and looks to 2009 and beyond to prove that he is the best breaststroker in the world.
