SPORTS supplement provider, Pro-10.com, is delighted to welcome successful decathlete, Mike Sweeney, as a new brand ambassador. Sweeney is an aspiring Olympic decathlete representing Great Britain and England, making a name for himself as a dedicated, talented and enthusiastic competitor.
Born in Liverpool, Sweeney has been competing for six years and has enjoyed consistent improvement in all ten decathlon events. He didn’t start seriously training until he was 17, which is relatively late compared to many of his competitors, but immediately fell in love with the physically demanding and highly skilful nature of the decathlon.
At the recent England Athletics Championships in Bedford, Sweeney was crowned British Universities and College Sports (BUCS) champion with a personal best of 6602 points. This score also placed him as number six on the England Athletics Championship board.
A spokesperson for Pro-10.com said: “We are looking forward to working with Mike and watching him continue to achieve greater and greater successes. He’s very dedicated and really prides himself on the long hours, time and energy he spends on perfecting his training regime.
“As our ambassador, he will share his successes and challenges with us and we’ll make them available to our customers to read about online. From his favourite training tips to an insight into the kind of supplements he uses, Mike will offer interesting and useful facts and information to other aspiring athletes and sporting enthusiasts.”
Mike trains as much as he can every day and fits the rest of his life around his training schedule. He knows that if he wants to be a world class Olympic decathlete, his regime must be built to help him hone his skills in a very specific way. The decathlon is a demanding event and due to the huge amount of talent and training needed to compete, the winner of the Olympic Decathlon is often dubbed ‘The Greatest Athlete in the World’.
Made up of ten separate events – including the 100m, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400m, 110m hurdles, discus throw, pole vault javelin throw and 1,500m – the decathlon puts athletes through a series of mental and physical challenges that require great skill and energy levels. In addition to extensive training, it’s essential to get nutrition and sports supplements right to provide the necessary energy for the two-day event.
According to a Pro-10.com spokesperson, Sweeney’s enthusiastic attitude and infectious personality makes him a wonderful addition to Pro-10.com’s ambassadors. He added: “Mike is a joker who enjoys a bit of a laugh during training, but he knows when it’s time to be serious about his sport. His excellent approach to becoming a better athlete really made him stand out as the kind of person we wanted to work with.
“As an ambassador, he’ll help us spread the word about training in a responsible way, eating a balanced diet and finding the right, high quality sports supplements to help you get the best out of your regime. We are very pleased to welcome him on board and excited to see what’s next for this committed young decathlete.”
