Olympic hopeful is in town ahead of World Gymnastics Championships.
Strathmore water is today announcing that it will fuel the world’s best athletes at the World Gymnastics Championships, as the official water to the event being held at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow from 23 October – 1 November 2015.
Multiple Commonwealth games medalist, Dan Keatings, was in Glasgow to launch the part-nership for Strathmore. He was joined by local gymnastics fans as he gave them a mini masterclass at Glasgow Club Bellahouston.
Strathmore will provide 144,000 bottles of water (more than 72,000 litres) to athletes and their support teams over the 10 day competition, ensuring they can vault, handspring and somersault with maximum hydration. The brand will also take to the streets of Glasgow throughout the competition to encourage and inspire members of the public to Do More by showing them how gymnastics can play a role in their everyday lives.
Dan Keatings, said: “Hydration is a fundamental part of any athlete’s regime. It’s essential to be thoroughly hydrated before competing and also to keep yourself topped up throughout events to ensure you are performing at your absolute best and constantly pushing yourself to do more. It’s not just important for professionals though - it’s a vital part of keeping active and feeling your best every day.”
Councillor Frank McAveety, Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “Excitement is building as we approach the World Gymnastics Championships and we are delighted to have the sup-port of Strathmore Water. Preparation is everything for the competing gymnasts and this partnership with Strathmore will help ensure that they are in the best possible shape for competing on the global stage.”
Strathmore is an avid supporter of sport in Scotland and supports a number of sporting leagues and events including Scottish Rugby and SPFL, as it inspires people to Do More every day in their everyday lives.
