Always Improving Athlete Performance - Commonwealth Games Update

Some key Team Infint athletes are competing at the games in Glasgow: Ryan Cochrane, Noelle Montcalm, Melissa Bishop and Julie Labonte.  The only one to compete so far has been Ryan, swimming the fastest 400 m Freestyle of his long career to take Gold.  Today he qualified fastest in his premier event the 1500 m, he will be swimming in the centre lane for tomorrow's final.  Good to see Ryan is still getting faster!

Tomorrow Julie competes in Shot Put.  Julie is a newer Infinit athlete - we first talked 4 weeks ago, we customized a blend, provided Rescue and Raw for her recovery needs.  We were happy to see that she packed it for her Commonwealth journey.

Both Noelle and Melissa hit the track later this week in the 400 m hurdles and the 800 m.  We are stoked that we have two national champions competing at the games - can't wait to see them in action.  Been a pleasure working with two local Windsor athletes that are competing on the world stage.  A year into our partnership it has really cool seeing and supporting the various phases of their training.  Being able to see them race several times in person and participating in a camp has been a thrill, been really thankful that I have been introduced to the track community, amazing athletes that really do not get the same recognition as some of the other sports in Canada.  If you ever get a chance, you should check it out.  To put things in perspective, I am doing some track workouts, preparing for a marathon - have got my 800 m repeats down to 3:30, Melissa is running her's in under 2 minutes.  Amazing.

Wishing all 4 of these athletes all the best over the next week, we are so proud of these Canadians!
