EGGS : Official Protein Supplier To Olympic Team

EGGS : Official Protein Supplier To The Olympic Games Team, Naturally

Eggs to provide quality protein for Kiwi athletes striving for gold!

The ‘Incredible Edible Egg’ has been announced as the Official Protein Supplier to New Zealand’s Olympic Games Team.

That is fantastic news for athletes and egg lovers everywhere, according to Peter High, Executive Officer of Eggs Incorporated (Eggs Inc.).

“Eggs have been elevated to gold medal status by being formally recognised by the New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC) as the official protein supplier to our Olympic level sports men and women.”

“This follows on from a hugely successful partnership with the 2002 Commonwealth Games, and is another long-term opportunity for eggs to support New Zealand’s sporting community.”

Peter High says this collaboration between Eggs Inc. and the NZOC is a great example of two organisations working synergistically together for the benefit of New Zealanders’ potential international sporting success.

“With eggs being nature’s original power pack, we believe this is the ideal brand fit. Eggs are one of the most versatile and nutrient rich sources of complete protein, vitamins and minerals - a perfect food, and a source of strength and muscle for athletes,” says Mr High.

“Eggs also provide slow-burning energy and vitality while promoting overall good health for active people, including world class athletes whose bodies are under colossal strain on a daily basis.”

Barry Maister, Secretary General, NZOC, says that the NZOC relies heavily on the support of partners and sponsors to fund the New Zealand Olympic Games Team.

“We are always keen to promote New Zealand companies, and this partnership with Eggs Inc is a good example of co-operation with a health promoting New Zealand company, in the interests of our athletes.”

“Egg farmers throughout the country have joined together to provide nutritional support to our Olympic Team,” says Mr High.

“We want to encourage all Kiwis to get behind this campaign. Look out for the Olympic logo on egg cartons, which will go on sale from March. Every purchase of a specially marked egg carton means further financial support for our Olympic team, to help in their quest for success!”

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
