Klean Athlete® Announces Klean Oath Contest Winner
Sponsorship recipient chosen from growing athletic community
PITTSBURGH, Pa., September 26, 2013 – Klean Athlete®, a line of NSF Certified for Sport® nutritional supplements designed to support the healthy lifestyle and promote peak performance of the athlete in all of us, is pleased to announce Beth Ulibarri of Albuquerque, NM as the winner of its Klean Oath contest. Beth was selected from the growing community of over 1,200 athletes who have taken the oath and pledged to live and train clean.
“In the spring of 2012 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and went from recreationally participating in running events to making exercise and nutrition a key for how I was going to combat this cureless disease,” says Ulibarri. “When my body is feeling good physically it helps me just as much emotionally. To me, being a Klean Athlete® means living an entirely healthy lifestyle with everything from how I exercise to how I’m fueling my body with safe, proper nutrition and supplementation.”
Built upon the mission of providing NSF Certified for Sport® nutritional supplements that encourage peak performance through optimal health, Klean Athlete® began encouraging likeminded athletes to join its Klean community by taking the Klean Oath™. Those who took the oath and shared their story of athletic integrity during the specified contest period were entered to win a Klean Athlete® sponsorship package. Out of hundreds of stories shared, the judges chose Beth’s incredible story as their winner.
“Beth’s inspiring story and lifestyle truly exemplifies what it means to be a Klean Athlete® as well as our team’s goal to provide athletes with supplements that support, rather than enhance peak performance,” says Timothy Monk, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Klean Athlete®. “The Klean Oath was created as a way for all athletes, from the weekend warrior to the professional competitor, to share their promise to train clean and connect with others who adhere to this lifestyle.”
As the winner, Beth will receive a Klean Athlete® Sponsorship package including a year’s supply of Klean Athlete® supplements, an upcoming race entry fee of her choice, a custom race kit, and Klean Athlete®gear. Shortly after being diagnosed with MS, Beth qualified for and competed in the 2013 Boston Marathon.
“Running the Boston Marathon again someday would certainly be a great use of my sponsorship,” she admits. “But it also might be a perfect opportunity for me to give an IRONMAN Triathlon a try!”
