Holly Brooks ‘Cleans Up’ at West Yellowstone Super Tour

Holly Brooks, Olympic Skate Skier and Nuun Athlete Ambassador, knows a thing or two about staying hydrated when teeth are a-chattering. Originally from Washington, Holly spends most of her time training in Anchorage, AK, and never clicks in without having Nuun nearby.

“I love the simple, satisfying taste of Nuun and the knowledge that I’m giving my body what it needs to train and race…and the lack of feeling bloated is a bonus! I wish I would have known about Nuun 2 yrs ago. I suffered from Exertional Rhabdomyolosis, which is basically severe muscle damage because I was so dehydrated. I passed out and taken the emergency room.”

These days Holly is staying out of the ER and far away from Exertional Rhabdo-whatchamacallit, thanks to our bountiful wonder-tabs. She’s off to a great start this year with back-to-back victories in the 1.5km classic sprint and the free style event at West Yellowstone Super Tour. Watch for Holly in 2014, as she will be charging for the podium in Sochi!

Congrats, Holly!
