Team BodyHealth ( athletes claim outstanding victories at the Ford Ironman World Championships in Kona.

Team BodyHealth ( members, Cherie Gruenfeld and Kevin Moats stormed to victory in their age-groups at the Ford Ironman World Championship in Kona on October 10, 2009. As previous winners, both Cherie and Kevin credit their use of Master Amino Acid Pattern (MAP)® for their consistent success.

Standing by to offer congratulations was fellow Team Bodyhealth member and MAP spokesperson, the legendary 6-time Ironman World Champion, Dave Scott who said of their victories, "They were truly inspirational. Cherie's Ironman conquests are staggering! She is defying the hurdles of aging and each year is able to race extraordinarily well. Kevin is just plain tough! He has an uncanny ability to dominate his age group year in year out. Without exception, he blasted his competition in this year's race."

Cherie Gruenfeld led the 65-69 age-group from start to finish, setting a new course record and finishing over 2 hours ahead of her nearest rival in a time of 13:22. This victory gives her an astonishing ninth World Championship title. Reflecting on the race she says, "In preparing for Kona this year, I made a few minor changes to my training plan, taking a bit more rest while still putting together two or three days of key training back-to-back each week. Doing this, and being on a regular regime of MAP, I was able to get in some quality training. And it paid off with a solid 1st place win and a new course record in the W65-69. Now I'm using MAP as part of my recovery plan."

Kevin Moats fought off some very strong challenges in the 55-59 age-group to win in a time of 10:33, giving him his third World Championship title. Coming out the water in sixth place, Kevin clawed his way up to first place on the bike leg and then maintained his lead on the run. As a long-time MAP user, Kevin needed its nutritional support more than ever in the grueling race conditions. He says, "The conditions were the toughest I remember in 20 years. Headwinds most of the day on the bike and no cloud cover on the bike or run. Hot and hotter. I was fried off the bike, and shuffled each aid station pouring a litre bottle of cold water over my head each stop." The Team BodyHealth athletes are both members of the MAP Winners Circle (

To finish a grueling Ironman course is a true test of endurance requiring a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a 26.2-mile run. One of the reasons that Team BodyHealth members are so consistent is because MAP is 2 to 5 times more effective and absorbed 4 to 12 times faster than meat, fish, soy or whey. Master Amino Acid Pattern (MAP) is 100% absorbed within 23 minutes and is utilized to build body proteins. No other source of protein or amino acid can compare. This unique patented formula of the essential amino acids was created in the exact ratio and pattern-MAP for the human body to optimize endurance and protein recovery and minimize injury.
