We wanted to take a minute to introduce the PROBAR fans and loyal customers to new PROBAR athlete Liz Stephen. Liz is from East Montpelier, VT but now lives in Park City, UT when she’s not traveling the world to compete. This means that her winter months are primarily spent overseas, competing on the World Cup circuit, and her summer months are spent in Park City.
Liz has been a fan of PROBAR for a long time now, and relies on the real food nutrition for fuel before, during and after activity, as well as during everyday life. She’s a big fan of the FUEL bars for fueling on the go during training sessions. She’s a veteran of the World Cup tour and has been member of Team USA since 2006, competing at the Olympics in 2010 and again in Sochi in 2014.
Most recently, Liz placed 2nd in at the World Cup event in Rybinsk, Russia, her first individual World Cup podium and Team USA’s first podium of the season. She also finished in a historic 5th place in the Tour de Ski event (best finish ever by an American), and currently sits in 6th place on the FIS World Cup standings.
She’s off to a great year, and we like to think some of her success comes from solid fueling and nutrition, but of course hard work and determination are what separate her from the pack. Best of luck next week at World Championships Liz, we’ll be cheering for you!
