Mission Apolo Is Built By Chocolate Milk And Ready For Kona IRONMAN World Championship

The IRONMAN World Championship Built by Chocolate Milk series with Apolo Ohno and last year with Hines Ward, is a true testament to the recovery power of this delicious choco liquid drink and these aging athletes. I enjoyed blogging about their training habits, sports technology and build up to this Big Island event. Unfortunately, our Sports Techie community blog Q &A request to fellow Seattleite Ohno was again denied by the former speed skating world champion so we wish him and teammates, Jen Ator the best come Saturday.

How Action Sports Can Help Your Brand

Despite the fact that Red Bull only sells one drink product, it has become the third most influential social brand in the world, states the University of Montana’s School of Business Administration.

For example, Red Bull has had profound success in using action sports stars to market their product. Go Pro has used similar tactics with their marketing campaigns and contests. So, how did these two brands achieve success?
