Emma Igelström serious about recovery

Smartfish Sport is happy to announce its latest collaboration with swimming legend Emma Igelström. Emma is a former Swedish breaststroke swimmer and five times World Champion.

Currently, Emma inspires and coaches young aspiring athletes at Kungsbacka SS.

“I am excited to work with Smartfish to optimize my recovery after exercise. The Recharge recovery drinks taste great and provide me with my daily dosage of omega-3 fatty acids, speeding up my recovery", says Emma Igelström.

Recharge is a series of sports nutrition products specifically designed for optimal recovery after exercise. All Recharge supplements are made with Smartfish’s patented emulsion technology consisting of naturally present antioxidants from juices of fruits and berries, oxidation protected omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), whey protein concentrate, and vitamin D.

“Emma Igelström is a world class athlete whom we are very happy to collaborate with. Her World Champion titles are not only proofs of Emma’s outstanding achievements, but also important for inspiring and guiding young athletes.” says Geir Harstad, CEO.

Emma Igelström is currently training young athletes at Kungsbacka Simsällskap and with her background she is a strong ambassador for swimming and thus taking nutrition and recovery seriously. Emma is also focusing on her own training as she is still very active within various disciplines so her curiosity on how to help her body the right way to optimal performance is very valid.
