Craig Gibbons 100m Freestyle Final European Championship 2010


“I tried Orbana Healthy Energy Drink at the recent Commonwealth Games trials in Sheffield for the first time and found myself very surprised. Orbana tasted great and was really easy to digest compared to other ‘heavier’ drinks. After the morning heats I was very fatigued and felt I needed a good sleep and an extra kick for the semi final later that day. I consumed Orbana Healthy Energy approximately 30 minutes before my race and found myself to be full of energy and ready to go. I swam a personal best time in the semi and used Orbana again before the final where I swam even faster. After results like those, Orbana Healthy Energy Drink will definitely be a major part of my preparation towards the London 2012 Olympics.”
