Sponser the "leading sports nutrition brand in Switzerland" is being brought to the UK by distribution company Everest Sports.

Based in Switzerland, "Sponser have been producing top quality drinks and energy bars for over 20 years." According to the company, their extensive range is sold in over 25 countries across Europe and endorsed by top athletes such as Maria Sharapova, mountain bike star Nino Schurter and Ironman Ronnie Schildknecht.

Initially, the products will be available to buy directly through the UK website. The products include a range of energy and recovery drinks, energy and protein bars and gels. "All of which set a new benchmark for nutrition, performance and taste, meeting the requirements of amateur through to professional athletes," says their press release.

Looking interesting are Liquid Energy and Liquid Energy Plus gels in a two-serving-sized tube that is "uniquely re-sealable" and easy to open and close on the fly. It solves the regular issue, claim Sponser, of putting a gel wrapper back in a jersey - you DO put them back in your pocket, don't you? - or wanting to use only half of the product.

They're looking to support grassroots sport and aspiring athletes in the UK, "as well as offering affiliated clubs 10% off and 5% back from the orders to the club."

Sponser are sponsoring the popular Velocast cycling podcast which has given the presenters John and Scott plenty of opportunity for gigglesome banter on the sponsor/sponser theme.
