Twinlab® signs on to sponsor professional beach volleyball player Mike Morrison
Twinlab® provides supplement support and community exposure as part of sponsorship with 2012 Olympic hopeful
AMERICAN FORK, Utah -- March 2, 2010 -- Twinlab Corporation, a pioneer in sports nutrition for 40 years, announced today that the company is sponsoring the professional beach volleyball player Mike Morrison. As a part of the Sponsorship, Twinlab® will provide supplement support for Morrison with several Twinlab products, such as Glutamine Fuel®, Joint Fuel®, Twinlab Glucosamine, Electrolyte Fuel® and Endurance Fuel®.
Morrison grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, far from the beach. He dreamed of one day moving to the mountains to become a professional snowboarder, until fate stepped in and introduced him to volleyball. Morrison joined the indoor volleyball club at Western Michigan University during his senior year. He kept playing after graduation and moved to San Diego to pursue a career in professional beach volleyball.
“As someone who didn’t play volleyball until his senior year of college, and within the span of seven years has become one of the top pro beach volleyball players in the country, Mike truly embodies the Twinlab vision that if you set a physical goal for yourself, work hard and get the right nutrition you can make it happen.” says Marc Stover, Director of Marketing, Twinlab Corporation.
Morrison finished last season ranked as the number three blocker in the United States. In 2010, he will compete internationally in his hopes of earning a coveted spot on the 2012 U.S. Olympic men’s volleyball team.
“Working out in the sand requires the use of many more muscles than if you were working out on a solid surface. So in a sport like volleyball, it’s important to get the right nutrients so you’re not wearing your body down,” says Morrison. “Twinlab is truly a quality health and supplement organization that I feel will be able to support me and help to get me where I want to go in the sport of volleyball.”
