Olympic Gold-Medal Winner and Reigning Ironman World Champion To Train, Race and Recover With GLUKOS

SCOTTSDALE, AZ (FEBRUARY 15, 2017) - GLUKOS Energy announces today the addition of professional triathlete Jan Frodeno to their growing roster of world-class athletes. Frodeno, reigning Ironman World Champion and World Record holder at the distance, will rely on GLUKOS energy to fuel his training and racing, and GLUKOS protein for muscle repair and recovery. 

Frodeno, who races for his home country of Germany, is hailed as one of the most decorated male professional athlete currently competing. His accomplishments include winning Gold in the 2008 Summer Olympics – Triathlon, winning the 2015 Ironman 70.3 World Championships after a 2014 second-place podium finish, and winning back-to-back titles at the 2015 and 2016 Ironman World Championships after a third-place podium in 2014.  Frodeno has chosen to fuel with GLUKOS because of its ingredients and proven performance. “I am notorious for being very picky about what I put into my body. It is incredibly hard, even in Europe, to find products with such clean, safe and simple ingredients. When I first tried the energy gel I was pleasantly surprised at how easily it went down and how quickly I noticed an energy boost,” said Frodeno. “Having an optimal hydration and nutrition program is as important as your training program. With GLUKOS, I’m confident that I’ll be able to train and race harder and faster than ever before.” 

Frodeno looks forward to a full season of racing in 2017, capped off with his return to the Big Island to defend his Ironman World Champion title in October.

“We are beyond excited to be working with Jan for 2017,” said Mark Jensen, GLUKOS Founder. “Not only is Jan a phenomenal athlete, he is a really nice guy who embodies the GLUKOS all-inclusive spirit. Our roster of world-class athletes is expanding and we are looking forward to making many more announcements as the 2017 season progresses.”
