DENVER, Colo. (Jan. 9, 2017) – Only one woman, Katrin Davíðsdóttir, can uniquely claim to be the fittest female athlete in the world. As she continues her journey to the 2017 CrossFit® Games, she is teaming up with Ascent® Protein, the Official Sponsor of Hard Work™, to help get her there.

Katrin, CrossFit Games 2015 and 2016 “Fittest Woman on Earth”, is the second officially sponsored athlete for Ascent. “I put my body through grueling workouts and need to refuel it with a clean, pure and wholesome food to help aid recovery and enable me to do it all over again. With Ascent Protein I know I’m taking in only what I need – it’s the cleanest you can find out there.”

“Just like Katrin, Ascent believes in hard work and not taking the easy way out,” said Paul Vraciu, general manager for Ascent Protein. “Like the athletes it works to serve, we have set the highest possible bar for protein purity: Ascent protein is made with native whey and has zero artificial ingredients or flavors. As part of a daily nutritional plan, Ascent Protein complements athletes’ need for fueling their bodies with wholesome food.”
