EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Professional swimmer Ashley Twichell has joined BiPro USA as an official endorser of its high-quality whey protein isolate. Twichell started consuming BiPro® last year at the U.S. Olympic Complex in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and immediately saw results.
"Their recovery center has BiPro, so I just started drinking it and loved it. I could see a huge difference," Twichell said. "I just like being able to bring that protein with me to the pool and to get it into my body right after."
The Fayetteville, New York, native is the 5th-fastest female performer in the 1,650 yard freestyle race in United States history. Twichell excels in long-distance open water events and hopes to qualify for the 2016 Olympics in the 800-meter freestyle.
"I'm better with distance, which is why I gravitated toward open water after college. I like the longer distance," Twichell said. "After doing open water 5,000-meter and 10,000-meter races, the 800 is pretty short. So, I've been working on more speed and I've found that that's another way BiPro has come in handy. It just makes me feel stronger, which is essential for the shorter events."
Twichell graduated from Duke in 2011 as an Academic All-American and set program records in the 500-, 1,000- and 1,650-yard freestyle events. She is now a volunteer assistant for her alma mater.
"We are incredibly thrilled that Ashley approached us about a sponsorship," said Aimee Krengel, BiPro USA's marketing manager. "Her story shows that BiPro can help athletes reach their goals whether they're on the land or in the water."
Twichell is a three-time national champion and has earned gold and bronze medals in the FINA World Championships. She hopes that emphasizing nutrition will help her find even more success in the pool.
"Nutrition is never anything I've really concentrated on. I believe I was doing everything in the water I could do to train, but I don't think I was taking full advantage of recovering out of the water," Twichell said. "BiPro is an absolutely great way to ensure that I'm recovering properly and quickly."
