Herbalife, the Los-Angeles-based global nutrition company, congratulated its sponsored triathlete Heather Jackson on her second IRONMAN win in thirty days. Jackson won the IRONMAN 70.3 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on May 21, earning the title for the second year in a row.
Jackson was one of 2,944 athletes competing in the race. The Bend, Oregon-based triathlete completed the race with a time of 4 hours, 15 minutes and 20 seconds.
“I am thrilled with the race results and so grateful for the support from the Herbalife Nutrition community for making sure I was properly fueled and hydrated before this and every race,” said Jackson.
“Heather Jackson’s outstanding accomplishments are an inspiration to us all, showing us what can be achieved through passion, hard work and commitment,” said Herbalife Chairman and CEO Michael O. Johnson. “As her official nutrition partner, Herbalife Nutrition is proud to continue fueling her on her journey.”
On April 24, Jackson won the women’s race at the IRONMAN 70.3 Peru. She then donated all proceeds to the Peruvian people, who were devastated by floods that displaced an estimated 900,000 families.
Jackson’s next race is the IRONMAN in Boulder, Colorado, where she’ll vie for one of 40 slots in order to qualify in this year’s IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, in September.
Herbalife supports more than 190 world-class athletes, teams and events around the globe, including Cristiano Ronaldo, the LA Galaxy and champions in many other sports.
