PureSport tees up global endorsement deal with LPGA star Angela Stanford
HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. -- PureSport, makers of the new, science-based and patent-pending performance drinks that have revolutionized the sports drink category, announced today that it has signed an endorsement agreement with Angela Stanford, who is currently ranked seventh worldwide in women's professional golf.
Stanford, who has been training with PureSport for several months with great results, now has 12 top-ten finishes in 15 starts dating back to September 2009, including three victories. She shared third place Sunday in the LPGA State Farm Classic.
Under the terms of the deal, Stanford will join PureSport's unparalleled list of brand ambassadors - elite athletes including Olympians Michael Phelps, Brendan Hansen, Aaron Peirsol and Nastia Liukin - to build global awareness for PureSport and the benefits that come with training with the product.
Stanford will also work with Liukin on a special effort to educate female athletes about the importance of training with PureSport to improve endurance, reduce muscle tissue damage and promote muscle tissue repair.
"PureSport is the most scientifically-sound performance drink on the market, and I'm thrilled to be part of the team they've chosen to help them spread the word," said Stanford. "This product works like nothing I've tried before and I love that it tastes great, has no caffeine or added sugar and has about half the calories of other sports drinks."
Created by Dr. John Ivy, chair of the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education at the University of Texas at Austin, PureSport's secret is in its 2:67-to-1 carbohydrate-to-protein ratio, which has been scientifically proven to be the ideal ratio for muscle performance.
Stanford trains five days a week and drinks PureSport Workout before each training session and PureSport Recovery within 30 minutes of completing each workout. Grape is Stanford's favorite flavor.
"This deal links Angela, who is one of the most exciting, up-and-coming female golfers in the world, with the most exciting, new sports performance drink on the market," said Eddie Smith of Gaylord Sports, which represents Stanford. "It's an ideal partnership."
"We're thrilled to have Angela on the PureSport team," says Michael Humphrey, CEO of PureSport. "Like all our athlete ambassadors, Angela trains with the product and has experienced first-hand the benefits of the product. She's in the best possible position to help us get the word out about the science we're bringing to the sports drink category."
