Twinlab® Announces Winner of the 2009 Rate Your Abs.com Contest

New York, N.Y. (October 14, 2009) – Twinlab®, the leader in sports nutrition, announces the winner of the company’s 2009 RateYourAbs.com contest. The nationwide tour hit seven cities, countless beaches and even a few nightclubs in search of the best abs. The contest generated almost 1,000 entrants vying for the title of RateYourAbs.com Champion and the Grand Prize Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited or cash prize. The search for the winner of the 2009 RateYourAbs.com Contest went down to the wire and finally Sammy Vergara of Queens, New York was named RateYourAbs.com Champion after receiving over 9,000 votes.

Sammy, who chose the cash prize option, plans to pay it forward by donating a portion of his winnings to charity.

“Taking part in the Twinlab 2009 RateYourAbs.com Contest was a lot of fun because of the high level of competitors,” says Sammy Vergara, RateYourAbs.com Champion. “It makes me feel good to give back to the community and donate a portion of my prize to a charity that I am running for in the New York City Marathon called ‘Run for our Sons’ to combat Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I will also be investing some of it in a martial arts school that I am opening in the next couple of months here in New York.”

“We are thrilled with the success of this year’s campaign and look forward to what next year will bring,” says Marc Stover, Twinlab’s Director of Marketing. “We want to thank everyone who put their abs to the test and hope that entries that didn’t pull off the victory this year will be motivated to participate in next summer’s contest.”
