Tyson Gay Partners With EAS Sports 100% Certified Program

By EAS (Press Release)
September 27, 2011

Abbott’s EAS Sports Nutrition brand is partnering with American Track and Field star Tyson Gay to serve as an ambassador for the EAS new 100% Certified program, through which all EAS sports nutrition products are banned substance tested by industry-leading, independent, laboratories and marked with a “tested and true” seal.  Tyson, 28, has distinguished himself as a strong supporter of anti-doping initiatives through his work with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency’s “Project Believe” program during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, where he was regularly tested to ensure the absence of performance-enhancing drugs.

Now, the world champion sprinter is seeking a return trip to the Olympic Games next summer in London and an opportunity to capture his first Olympic medal. Tyson plans to compete in several early season domestic meets in the spring of 2012, before heading to the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Ore.

As an EAS Sports Nutrition ambassador, Tyson joins fellow “Team EAS” members Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona Cardinals) and Danny Granger (Indiana Pacers) to help raise awareness for the importance of performance nutrition and clean competition in all sports at all levels.  
“Every time I put something in my body, I have to think about what it is, where it came from and how it will impact my training and racing,” said Tyson.  “I am excited to be part of the EAS Sports Nutrition 100% Certified program and supporting nutrition education and informed choices around safe supplement use.”
