FRS Athlete Jordan Romero Shatters World Mountain Climbing Record With successful ascent of Vinson Massif in Antarctica, 15 year old becomes the youngest person ever to climb "The 7 Summits"
FOSTER CITY, Calif., Jan. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FRS® Healthy Performance™ reached new heights fueling teen sensation Jordan Romero as he became the youngest person to climb the tallest mountains on all seven continents at age 15. Romero reached the summit of Vinson Massif in Antarctica on December 24 to break a world mountain climbing record that few believed possible. Romero has been fueled by FRS® Healthy Performance™ products since his successful ascent of Mt Everest at the age of 13.
"Everyone here at FRS is thrilled, but never surprised, by the amazing accomplishments of our world class athletes. Jordan's latest triumph proves he is not only an outstanding athlete with historic achievements, he is also a positive influence that believes in a healthy active lifestyle... what FRS is all about," said Carl Sweat, President and CEO of The FRS Company. "We can't wait to support him on his next adventure."
FRS helped fuel Team Jordan on the latest quest with Healthy Protein™ and Healthy Energy® products. The patented FRS® formula features the powerful all-natural antioxidant Quercetin, found naturally in fruits and vegetables, with green tea catechins and seven essential vitamins that serve as a natural energy and endurance booster.
"After Mt. Everest we learned a bit about keeping our drinks from freezing and we relied on FRS as our only fuel for the final three day ascent to the summit," said Jordan Romero. "We carried FRS concentrate with us all the way from California to Antarctica because it's a healthy drink we can trust to get us to the summit. In Antarctica, the constant cold and close quarters tested our immune system and every function of our body to the maximum. We relied on FRS to get us through."
Jordan is part of an elite roster of FRS Athletes, including: NFL Quarterback and 2007 Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Tebow, seven time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong, USA Women's National Soccer Team Captain Christie Rampone, five-time NBA champion Derek Fisher, and others.
