Yakult has announced support for Commonwealth and double European Champion swimmer Jazz Carlin throughout the upcoming 2016 season.
Yakult, which this year celebrates 20 years in the UK, has long been associated with the sport of swimming, having supported the Fédération Internationale de Natation (FINA) swimming championships each year since 2005. The company supplies Yakult to a range of sporting individuals and teams throughout Europe on an ongoing basis, and has conducted research with elite athletes in the UK.
Jazz Carlin said: “I was really pleased with my performance last season and I’m focussed on building on that this year. Having had setbacks from illness previously, it makes me even more determined to be as fit as possible, so I’m extremely grateful to Yakult for their support and I’m looking forward to working with the team.”
Sonya Hayden, PR Manager for Yakult UK, commented: “We’re delighted to support Jazz for 2016 and we wish her all the best in all upcoming competitions. When founding the Yakult company, the scientist Dr Shirota pledged to support cultural, educational and sporting organisations within his local area – and beyond – and this is something which continues to this day.”
