This is another one -- march Stottlemyre -- Hamilton.
Basically you know like Brian we've had in a number of world class athletes have discovered the replenishing natural properties of -- coconut water and really have built it into the routines for performance as a natural alternative to sports drinks.
And what we learned is as we discovered that people were drinking it and enjoying it really using it we started to reach out to them to build association so.
O'Brien is is among and obviously the greatest athletes in the world so that the fact that someone like him we use it for performance.
And also for its natural benefits just just makes sense and helps us build our brand.
-- to -- what he is the world's greatest athlete I mean that's what that means.
Looks -- a little bit about balancing everything that you're doing right now obviously spending a -- a time training.
But what are you doing any other -- why the business stuff.
You know I'm I'm going to be 32 here at the next Olympics and and I truly understand that you know there's a short shelf life were for an athlete in so.
What I'm trying to do -- transition from -- to now launch for enduring.
And get involved indifference partnerships legs -- Because I wanna go on change the world and -- goes a company that I enjoyed being with it's something that I absolutely believe in.
And the reason for that is because it's it's a product that I can actually -- my kids and anything it's good enough for me to give my kids is something that I wanna be a part of -- the worst thing that could happen for me is to go out and be drinking a product you know -- some other products out there.
And W drinking that and then have my kids -- with music he daddy can I have some that -- is that and then tellem gosh you know you can't have news.
It's just forgot it has got too much caffeine or it's got too much sugar it's got all these things so.
I and the brand I'm a person that they're truly believes in doing things naturally.
As you know with drug testing and things like that in in Olympic sports.
We get drug -- a lot and anytime I can be a part of a company or have a partnership with a company that is all natural and I don't have to worry about.
Things that are being put in -- and how it's gonna affect my performance and I can also give it's my kids it's a no brainer.
We know that brings up mark the product itself.
It's been it's funny I had never heard of this maybe as.
Six months ago and now it is everywhere.
Our sales how is the company growing pick up.
He's doing great we've consistently grown about a 100% per year for the last six years but this year were running at five times our sales last year.
There's -- just an explosive growth very great reception.
Pretty much nationwide we also just won in that target nationwide were the first and exclusive coconut water in there and that among many other retailers has just and you broke out another flavor that's right where the first a couple of world to do a chocolate coconut water.
Sounds a little may sound a little odd but it's absolutely delicious.
And it also has additional anti oxidant properties because of the chocolate -- kind of known as a replenishing.
Resource replenishment and rehydration itself in recovery so it sort of made sense to fit together in the case is just off the charts.
Interest and mark OK I want to talk about sports in your life is eight.
If I'm sorry -- I -- talk to you about your life is that actually right now who's your biggest competition worried concerned about how -- keeping yourself going.
Oh man that you know.

As a competitor and I just go on try to do best job that I -- right now we're training like you said six hours today.
Believe it or not I really am drinking my -- go I mean I've got my bottle here I just came from training.
My kids love it my my wife loves it and -- so it's -- it's a big part of my day.
And so we're gonna continue to go on try and win one more medal that we talked about before and that we can win one more then.
I'll be the first to cast -- in history to ever with three medals at three Olympic Games -- And at least I feel like I've.
You know have my part of the record -- -- and and maybe feel like I could have my name.
