Heard of Nedd Brockmann? By now, we’d be worried if you hadn’t. The 23-year-old Sydney tradie is currently flexing the ultimate display of hardiness as he attempts to break the world record for running across Australia. With a self-imposed time limit of 43 days, Nedd is running from Perth to Bondi, burning through a staggering total of 3,800km all in the name of charity (and a healthy dose of inspiration).
With the goal to raise $1 million for We Are Mobilise, a charity dedicated to fighting youth homelessness, Nedd’s Record Run is unsurprisingly something everyday Aussies are enthusiastically getting behind. The immense test of endurance as Nedd runs along the Nullarbor with his sights set on the sands of Bondi Beach, is the very definition of energy.
And it’s energy the man most definitely needs to keep him chugging towards the finish line. That’s why one of Nedd’s several sponsors is industry stalwart Optimum Nutrition – a brand that represents 35 years of history of sports nutrition and has fueled over 2 billion workouts from people starting their fitness journey to Olympic champions.
“We believe that there is more in everyone and our purpose is to provide the highest quality sports nutrition for them to achieve their potential,” writes Optimum Nutrition.
“We heard Nedd’s story and jumped at the chance to support him on his record attempt. He is proving that we are all capable of more and we knew Nedd would need more energy and more recovery to get him through the grueling days along the Nullarbor on his way to Sydney.”
Optimum Nutrition’s Amin.o Energy + Electrolytes Sparkling has been keeping Nedd in good company during his run. It offers a combination of 5 grams of Amino Acids, 100 mg of Caffeine from natural sources, and electrolytes to support performance, endurance and active living.
On the same hand, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey is the world’s best-selling sports protein and represents the gold standard of protein quality with 24 grams of protein to support muscle strength and recovery, and 5.5 grams of naturally occurring BCAAs per serving to support endurance and recovery.
