OTE Sports partners with Olympic Tri duo

A new partnership will see OTE Sports become Alistair and Jonny Brownlee’s official sports nutrition partner.

The Leeds-based sports nutrition company revealed the partnership on the eve of the AJ Bell World Triathlon Series event in Leeds, which the Brownlee brothers were instrumental in bringing to their home city for the first time in 2016.

Alistair Brownlee, who retained the Olympic triathlon title at Rio 2016 following his Gold at London 2012 said: "I’m excited to be teaming up with OTE at a time when I’m taking part in some longer distance triathlons and fuelling strategies become even more important.”

Jonny Brownlee added: "I’ve been using OTE products for some time now and I’m a big fan of the gels, drinks and Duo Bars in particular. Hydration will be a key focus for me as I start to build towards Tokyo 2020 so I’m looking forward to working closely with the OTE team.”

Matt Harrison, managing director at OTE Sports commented: “We’re extremely proud to reveal this exciting partnership with Alistair and Jonny and are looking forward to supporting them both with OTE’s natural sports nutrition products so they can compete at their best.”

Pete Slater, technical director at OTE Sports added: “I’ve been a triathlete for over 30 years now and worked in the sports nutrition industry for 25 years. We’re really looking forward to working closely with both Alistair and Jonny on further product innovation and also on nutritional strategies for longer distance racing.”
