7SYSTEMS Announces 2011 Pro Team

Pierse, Coolsaet, and Plaxton.

7SYSTEMS, the endurance sport supplement chosen by Olympians and recreational athletes all over Canada, announces their 2011 Pro Team. Based on the unprecedented success of the 2010 7SYSTEMS team, the entire team is returning to compete again in 2011. As well, there are two new additions to the team that are remarkable individuals committed to DOING MORE and doing it better.

“We’re really excited about adding to our 7SYSTEMS’ Pro Team,” said Jasper Blake, 7SYSTEMS founder and Pro IronmanTM Triathlete. “It is especially gratifying to see the high level of awareness and interest from many of Canada’s top endurance athletes competing at the Olympic level. We are excited to have the addition of our first swimmer; we think it demonstrates the versatility of our product and the breadth of support that it provides to all kinds of athletes.”

The 7SYSTEMS Pro Team does not compete as one complete team but rather represents 7SYSTEMS as they compete in their events on the world stage. 7SYSTEMS does not pay any athletes any money at all to endorse 7SYSTEMS. They all use it because it works.

New Team Members

Annamay Pierse is a member of Canada’s national swim team and the current world record holder for the women’s 200m breaststroke. Annamay was a member of the 2008 Canadian Olympic team in Beijing and is currently preparing for London in 2012.

Reid Coolsaet has been running cross-country ever since the sixth grade and hasn’t missed a single season. He is the 2005 national champion in the 5000m and participated at both the 2006 Commonwealth Games and 2006 IAAF World Cross Country Championships. Coolsaet just ran 2:11:23, the fastest time ever run by a Canadian on Canadian soil, at the 2011 Scotiabank Toronto Marathon. This time is 6 seconds faster than the Canadian Olympic marathon standard.

Max Plaxton may currently be Canada’s top male mountain biker and is a London 2012 hopeful. Max is a professional mountain biker, five-time National Champion and two-time World Champion in the relay event. He currently is one of four team members in USA factory team Specialized/Sho-air which is a professional cross-country mountain bike team.

Returning athletes from 2010 include Jasper Blake, Lauren Campbell, Kyle Jones, Mike Neill, and Simon Whitfield.

7SYSTEMS works with individuals not only as company ambassadors but as athletes who are committed to using the product and sharing the benefits with others. Last year there were hundreds of applicants and the team was picked on the basis of podium finishes, amazing athletic feats and strength of character.
