Chia bia is delighted to announce a sponsorship deal with Irish 800m indoor champion, Niall Tuohy. Niall has come back to his best form winning the intervarsity and national indoor championships over 800m and has his eyes firmly set on the European Championships. The sponsorship has been agreed through nTrai, an innovative new company whose aim it is to make it easier for sports people to find sponsorship and funding to help them achieve their goals, and create mutually beneficial partnerships.
Niall has been a supporter of Chia bia for many years now and the fit is brilliant. Niall speaks very positively about Chia bia and their support:
“I am so excited to link with Chia bia as a sponsor – I’ve been aware of the benefits of chia ever since I read Christopher McDougall’s book ‘Born to Run’ in 2009 and was amazed to learn how the Tarahumara Indians used chia as a primary fuel and nutrient source to run for miles on end. I am always looking for added ways in which I can keep healthy, allow my body to recover from intensive training and achieve optimum performance. Eating the right foods is such a key factor to this, especially when I try to balance it with academic commitments, and since quality performance is my goal then I can’t see anything but positives in partnering with a company like Chia bia that produces such a high quality product that can be so useful to athletes and performers in all disciplines to achieve their optimum performance.”
Barrie Rogers from Chia bia is delighted to be supporting Niall a fellow Waterford man – here’s what he had to say about the sponsorship deal –
“Chia bia is a company with a very positive outlook. We are currently looking forward to the launch of our new biscuits, and also our book next month – the partnership with Niall and nTrai is another positive step. Chia bia is a perfect fit for sponsorship for an athlete like Niall as the properties of chia can help to keep one hydrated, increase energy levels and prolong endurance. We are really excited about supporting Niall through his campaign”
The future looks bright for Niall, his nTrai followers and Chia bia.
