Nuheat has announced its sponsorship of $10,000 to two prominent Canadian athletes: Olympic judo wrestler Nick Tritton and elite cyclist Lex Albrecht. This contribution will go towards both athlete’s living and training costs over the next 12 months.

Specifically, Nuheat has provided a product donation to Nick Tritton’s “Olympic Perth House.” Proceeds from the sale of the home will financially support several Ontario charities as well as Tritton’s journey to the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Additionally, Lex Albrecht has received a monetary sponsorship which allows her to focus on her goal of representing Canada at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

“We are thrilled to help both Nick and Lex pursue their athletic goals,” said John Rose, President and CEO of Nuheat. “It is an honor to be associated with such passionate individuals. As a company, we are inspired by their determination and conviction and are looking forward to celebrating their upcoming achievements on the international athletic stage.”

Nick Tritton is a Canadian Olympic Judo Wrestler and alumni of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. He is currently working towards representing Canada at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and is competing in the World Masters-an international judo tournament. His final Olympic qualifying tournament is at the Pan American Championships in April.

Lex Albrecht is a member of Team Optum presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies, a United States women’s cycling team.
