Fish Oil Fuels 2008 Olympians

July 23rd; Sarasota, FL – Both the U.S. and Canadian Olympic Eventing squads have a new tool in their arsenal to help bring home the gold. The Olympians and their mounts are being fueled by omega-3 fish oils, courtesy of Wellpride®, omega-3’s for horses and Omega-Cure™, omega-3’s for humans.

Both the riders and horses will see performance boosting benefits from their omega-3 regimen, such as improved joint and respiratory function, and increased focus and stamina, to name a few. These are valuable benefits under normal competition stress. But under the additional stress of the drastic environmental conditions the horses and riders will endure in Hong Kong, the benefits of Wellpride and Omega-Cure could prove invaluable.

Olympian Gina Miles, who was short-listed for the ‘04 Olympics, said of her horse’s post-Wellpride performance at the ‘07 Pan-Am games, “McKinlaigh was not only the fastest of the U.S. horses, but he also recovered the fastest. This is a changed horse. He used to struggle with respiratory issues, including a tie-back surgery and pulmonary bleeding. Looking back, I can say I changed only one thing, and that was to put him on Wellpride last summer.”

Karen and David O’Connor, Olympic and Pan Am Game veterans as well as eventing super stars, are also strong supporters of Wellpride and Omega-Cure. They and their string of event horses have been on both products since Rolex 2007.

“We believe that our products can help these horses and riders perform to the best of their ability, especially under the intense environmental challenges that our teams will face at this year’s Games” said Wellpride and Omega-Cure co-founder and owner Anne-Marie Chalmers, MD. “We strongly believe in supporting our Olympic teams, so the decision was made to donate Wellpride and Omega-Cure to our North American horses and riders.”

Members and alternates of the 2008 U.S. Eventing Olympic Team who are currently using Omega-Cure and Wellpride include Philip Dutton and his alternate mount Woodburn, Becky Holder and Courageous Comet; Amy Tryon, and Poggio II, Heidi White-Carty and Northern Spy, Gina Miles and McKinleigh, Karen O’Connor and Mandiba, Bonnie Mosser and Murloch, and Buck Davidson. Canadian Olympic Eventing Team members using the products are Kyle Carter and Madison Park, Mike Winter and his team mount King Pin and alternate mount Wonderful Will, Samantha Taylor and Livewire, Sandra Donnelly and Buenos Aires, and Selena O’Hanlon’s mount Columbo.
