Beverage giants Banks DIH maintained its support for the rugby fraternity when Outdoor Events Manager Mortimer Stewart handed over a large quantity of energy drink ‘Powerade’ to Director of Sevens Mike McCormack on Thursday afternoon at the National Park, during a practice session for the national team currently preparing to contest the Pan Am Games Competition scheduled to be staged next month in Mexico.
Stewart in his remarks said that the gesture is just a continuation of the support that the Company has offered to the Union over the years and promised more assistance in the future.
He recognised the overwhelming success of the team over the past five years, adding that it is primarily because of the team’s consistent high achievements that the entity has seen it fit to maintain its support.
McCormack in his response spoke of the importance of the support garnered from the corporate community, adding that without it the sport could not enjoy the success it currently has.
“This gesture this afternoon is a small part of the large support that they offer and we in the Union is extremely grateful for it,” McCormack stated.
He said that without the corporate support it would be almost impossible for the sport to progress.
Meanwhile, Stewart reiterated that the drink is the right one for the players since it replaces lost energy which is generally the case when players are preparing for such high level tournaments.
Stewart informed that its nutritional value is vitally important to the players, informing that it is a high end energy drink that restores lost energy and is a necessary component to a player preparing to compete at the international level.
