U.S. Potatoes Fuel the Guinness World Records Towerrunner

Hi! What do you normally eat before workouts? 

When we need to fuel ourselves up with a quick energy boost, do you know that U.S Potatoes are great options especially for sportsmen, sportswomen and youths out there? 

U.S. Potatoes have always been well known for the natural, functional and nutrient-dense properties such as: 
❤ Rich in complex carbs, potassium, fibre and vitamin C
❤ Contains more potassium than a medium-size banana, which is an important electrolyte that aids in muscle, cardiovascular and nervous system function
❤ Contains zero fat, sodium and cholesterol
❤ Packed with essential vitamins and minerals 

You can count on the quality nutrients in U.S. Potatoes for optimal mental and physical performance, as a medium (148 gm) skin-on potato contains 110 calories for energy and 26 grams of carbohydrates, allowing it to be the primary fuel for your brain and muscles. In an intense or prolonged exercise session, our body's own stores of carbohydrate will eventually deplete, hence it is important to replenish them.

Wondering how high quality U.S. potatoes work wonder on high athletic performance? We can see it from Soh Wai Ching, our local Malaysia's very own champion towerrunner (World No. 2 and Asia No. 1 towerrunner) has successfully attained a new Guinness World Records (GWR) by clinching the title of “Greatest Vertical Height Stair Climbing in One Hour (Male)”, beating previous record holder Mr David Robles Tapia from Spain. 

Soh broke the record by climbing 3 full climbs from the Ground Floor to 66th Floor of the building plus one full climb up from Ground Floor to 65th plus one floor with a total elevation of 1,295.95m. The total distance covered was 1,295.95m, equivalent to 399 floors. The previous record by David Robles Tapia (Spain) was 1.227km, which was equivalent to about 378 floors (3.25m per floor - as a standard height per floor). 

Guess what's the secret? It's U.S. Potatoes that acts as a fuel to power up the performance. U.S. Potatoes are a proven functional food for nutritious diets / meal regimes for fuelling high performances, and Soh’s climb was fueled by various U.S. potato foods and drinks such as U.S. Potatoes Enduro Drink, U.S. Potato Wrap, U.S. Potato Protein Rosti and Roasted Cajun U.S. Potato Wedges

Soh has been taking the U.S. Potato Enduro Drink during lunch frequently on the training sessions, and during the GWR attempt, Soh had the U.S Potato power drink during the descent from 65th floor to Ground Floor before the next climb.

So if you'd like to experience real performance while enjoying real food, it's time to try out different recipes with U.S. Potatoes! Have fun!
