Kamut International Announces Partnership with Professional Ironman Champion Linsey Corbin

Missoula, MT (PRWEB) May 06, 2013

Kamut International, producers of KAMUT® Brand khorasan wheat, an organic, ancient grain, is proud to partner with three time Ironman Champion, Linsey Corbin. Linsey Corbin of Missoula, MT has raced Ironman competitions since 2006— claiming the fastest Ironman time recorded on U.S. soil and holding five triathlon course records. A healthy diet sustains Linsey’s performances, which frequently exceed 10,000 calories per event, and KAMUT® Brand khorasan wheat products provide a perfect fit for her endurance athlete fueling.

“I’m excited to partner with Kamut International. The more I’ve learned about the products and incorporated them into my training and racing lifestyle, the more I like it,” commented Linsey “KAMUT® wheat products are quick and easy to prepare and provide the ideal nutritional profile for endurance athletes, like myself.”

The micronutrients found in KAMUT® Brand wheat, such as selenium and zinc, are especially beneficial to endurance athletes, who are often under oxidative stress throughout training. Selenium and zinc are both powerful antioxidants, which counteract oxidative stress that causes harm to the body and impair recovery (1). Additionally, while many athletes rely on carbohydrates for immediate energy, eating foods high in healthy fats is important for building up a reserve source for fuel (2). Highly trained athletes are unique in that they rely on fat as a fuel source. The fact that KAMUT® wheat is high in both antioxidants and healthy fats makes it an ideal ingredient for athletes, allowing them to get these nutrients through food verses supplementation.

“We believe Linsey has a great perspective on nutritional needs, appreciates the mission of Kamut International and can really showcase the benefits of KAMUT® Brand wheat,” commented Trevor Blyth, Kamut International CEO, “Additionally, we’re thrilled to partner with a Montana- made professional athlete.”

KAMUT® is the brand name of the ancient grain, khorasan. Regulated by Kamut International, all KAMUT® Brand wheat is guaranteed to be grown certified organic and to be of the highest quality. Athletes can incorporate KAMUT® wheat several ways into their diets including: grinding the wheat berries into a hot cereal, eating flatbreads and other snacks, baking with the flour or simply cooking the KAMUT® berries to eat in place of rice in salads or main dishes. KAMUT® wheat pasta is especially ideal for the pre-race carb load, as it serves multiple purposes by offering the carbohydrates for immediate energy, while also providing lipids to store additional fuel.

Corbin and KI share an additional Montana connection: the love for a cowboy hat. Just as Bob Quinn, the founder of Kamut International is well known around the world for his cowboy hat, Linsey crosses every Ironman finish line with a cowboy hat and a smile. Corbin stated: “It’s become symbolic of Montana work ethic and finishing what you start.”

About Linsey Corbin
Linsey Corbin first stepped into triathlons in 2006. The “unknown” from Missoula Montana, made an early statement in the sport. Not only did she win the first two races she ever entered, she went on to set a course record in her first race as a professional. Since then, Linsey Corbin has become a household name in the sport of triathlon, achieving a multitude of accolades including top American at both Ironman and 70.3 World Championship events. In 2010, Linsey earned the coveted Ironman Champion title (CoeurD’Alene), and since then has added two more Ironman wins to her trophy collection.
