Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) April 16, 2013
On April 16, compression socks manufacturer PRO Compression extends their congratulations to 25-year old professional triathlete, Brice Winkler, on winning a duathlon recently in Santa Jose, California.
Winkler finished first out of 500 participants with a time of 1:59. The duathlon, which was held by USA Productions, consisted of a 10K run, followed by a 40K cycling leg, and finished with a 5K run.
In order to prepare for races, Winkler trains twice a day. “I’ll generally do my first workout around 5:30 AM and finish my day with a second workout around 7:00 PM. Over the weekends I’ll bike around 60 miles each day -- it’s intense.”
Winkler recently recovered from an injury endured during the race that earned him his professional triathlete license. He crashed, hard, and tore off all the skin on the left side of his body. Incredibly, he still finished in the top 8 overall and got his hard-won professional license. But the injury set him back about five months.
The triathlete has recently started using PRO Compression runners' socks and feels strongly about the benefits of using them. “My PRO Compression calf sleeves are a fantastic product and they really provide added blood flow. This helps not only with my running, but I even wear them to work as well because I sit for long periods of time and it keeps my blood moving.”
Eric Smith, CEO of PRO Compression socks, a manufacturer of compression socks for runners, says he’s happy Winkler has chosen compression socks to help him. “We want to commend Brice on his athleticism and his will to be the best at what he does. His triumph over his injuries is commendable, and we hope that he continues to use compression garments to aid with recovery time. We’re happy to see our product can benefit those who take running to the next level.”
Brice hopes to continue his success as a career triathlete and to compete in the Ironman World Championship triathlon.
