2012 PRO TEAM

NEWS RELEASE 

We’re not saying it’s because of 7SYSTEMS, we’re just saying…

Three 7SYSTEMS athletes named to Canadian Olympic Team

April 26th, 2012, TORONTO, ON: The team at 7SYSTEMS congratulates the Canadian Olympic Marathon team announced today at Alumni Stadium, University of Guelph.

Reid Coolsaet, Eric Gillis and most recently Dylan Wykes have all met the qualifying standard for London 2012, and they are all 7SYSTEMS athletes! Wykes and Gillis are relatively new additions to the 7SYSTEMS team and we are so happy we were able to support them on the Road to London. Canada will be well represented at this year’s marathon and we are proud to be providing the supplement needs of all three marathoners.

The Canadians presence in London will mark the first time Canada has had three entries in the Olympic marathon since Peter Fonseca, Carey Nelson and Bruce Deacon ran the marathon for Canada in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.

 “We’re very excited about the number of 7SYSTEMS athletes that will be competing at the upcoming games. London 2012 is going to be a great event for Canada and for many of our athletes,” said Jasper Blake, 7SYSTEMS founder and Pro Ironman™ Triathlete. “We work with many of the top-ranked athletes in the country to ensure their nutritional requirements are being met. And, considering we don’t pay our athletes to endorse us, we must be doing a good job! All of our athletes consider 7SYSTEMS an important part of their training regimen and we’re just happy to do our part for this Olympic year and many more to come!”

Reid Coolsaet, from Hamilton, and Eric Gillis, from Guelph, qualified for the Games at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in October, 2011. Dylan Wykes, from Kingston, ran a 2:10:47 in Rotterdam, Netherlands last week.

These three 7SYSTEMS athletes are the first of certainly many more to be named to the Canadian Olympic Team. Simon Whitfield, Paula Findlay and Malcolm Howard have all met the Canadian Olympic standard in their sports. As well, Adam Van Koueverden and Lauren Groves are still racing for a spot on the London 2012 team.
