PROVO, UT, Oct. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Morinda Bioactives (formerly Tahitian Noni International) announced that for the first time they will be a participating sponsor of the Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George, Utah. The Huntsman World Senior Games runs for two weeks in October and is the largest annual multi-sport event in the world for athletes 50 and over-this year hosting approximately 10,000 athletes, from 25 different countries. At this year's games, athletes will compete in 27 sports encompassing 122 different sporting events.
As a symbol of what seniors can achieve, this year's torch runner is none other than 69 year-old, Ultra Long Distance Runner, Stan Cottrell. An extraordinary athlete, Stan Cottrell has now run over 200,000 miles-that's over eight times around the world. He's received over 400 awards, has received commendations from four presidents, and has had ten Senate and House Resolutions passed in his honor. He even set a Guinness World Record for running across the United States (3,103 miles) in just 48 days! That's an average of 66 miles per day!
Mr. Kyle Case, CEO for The Games, stated, "We think Stan Cottrell is the ideal role model who portrays our philosophy of building lasting friendships and living healthy lifestyles via sporting activities. He carries a compelling message regarding the impact of each person's life, and the unique victory each one has to give to the world."
Stan Cottrell is an international icon. He also believes in Morinda Bioactive products. He started drinking Morinda Bioactive beverages a year ago and says that it gives him the same energy he had when running at age 35. He drinks Thrive Adaptogenics Max and can't believe the difference he feels in terms of his endurance and recovery.
Thrive Adaptogenics Max is also an international icon. Recently in a world-wide competition, Max won an International Stevie Award for the Best New Product of the Year - in the Consumer Products category. It only seems fitting that these two international icons should be sharing the stage together at the upcoming Huntsman World Senior Games.
