Eden Prairie, Minn. – A trio of American rugby players have joined BiPro USA as protein ambassadors. Kimber Rozier, Stacey Bridges and Samantha Pankey choose BiPro® as their protein powder because of the quality and clean nature of the product.

“As elite athletes, we wanted a high quality protein that was NSF Certified for Sport®. It’s important that we choose a protein supplement that is not full of artificial ingredients and sugar,” Pankey said.

Rozier, Bridges and Pankey consume BiPro after every workout and like how easily it mixes with liquids and foods.

“It’s important for us to get the proper nutrition and supplementation in order to optimize our training sessions. BiPro is just really easy to drink,” Bridges said. “I like the consistency of how it mixes into anything, whether it’s water, milk or my morning oatmeal.”

When not training for the USA Women’s National team, the trio is working hard to grow and develop women’s rugby in the Washington DC Metro for Scion Rugby Academy. The team plays in elite international and domestic tournaments. BiPro USA is excited to work with athletes that have shown extreme dedication to their craft.

“Kimber, Stacey and Samantha are very hard workers,” said Polly Olson, BiPro’s vice president of sales, marketing and new business development. “Partnering with them is a great way to support the rugby community and demonstrate BiPro’s value to rugby players.”

Rozier, Bridges and Pankey are preparing for the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup, to be held in Ireland, and hope that BiPro will help them make the most of their training.

“We tried BiPro and loved it,” Rozier said. “I’ve tried so many protein powders, and with so many choices out there, it’s nice to have a consistent, reliable and great product.”
