Waiwera Infinity Keeps Kiwi Olympic Athletes Hydrated

Competing at the Olympics is bound to be thirsty work but fortunately the New Zealand Olympic Team won’t have to worry about dehydrating.

Waiwera Thermal Resort and Spa on the Hibiscus Coast recently shipped 19,000 bottles of its Waiwera Infinity water off to Greece to keep the New Zealand team well watered while they’re away from home. Waiwera Infinity water, which dates back to 1875, is New Zealand’s first ionic micro water offering drinkers fast and rapid hydration as well as anti-aging and cell repair benefits.

Waiwera Thermal Resort and Spa’s chief executive John St Clair Brown says the company has spent 10 years researching the unique qualities of Waiwera Infinity which is bottled at source. They found the reduced size of its hydrogen clusters assists the body’s cells hydrate more rapidly and efficiently than most mineral waters. It can also help prevent illness by scavenging free radicals.

“We’re delighted to be able to support our Olympic athletes by supplying them with Waiwera Infinity water and hope its special hydrating abilities give them an extra edge against their competitors in the Athens heat,” he says.

While backing all Kiwi’s competing at the Games, Waiwera Thermal Resort and Spa will be keeping a special watch out for Europe dinghy class sailor, Sarah Macky of Auckland, who the resort and Waiwera Infinity water sponsor. “We’ve thrilled to be able to support Sarah and hope she achieves her dream of winning gold,” says Mr St Clair Brown. “She’s an incredibly talented sailor with a huge amount of potential and we’re confident she’ll make a real splash in Athens!”
