Herbalife-Sponsored Triathlete Heather Jackson Wins IRONMAN 70.3 Steelhead

Los Angeles-based Herbalife Nutrition congratulated its sponsored triathlete, Heather Jackson, on her recent IRONMAN 70.3 Steelhead win at Benton Harbor, Michigan.

Jackson, who trains in Bend, Oregon, completed the event with a time of 4 hours, 16 minutes and 57 seconds. She previously won the women’s race at the IRONMAN 70.3 Peru on April 24—donating all proceeds to the Peruvian people devastated by the recent floods that displaced an estimated 900,000 families—and the IRONMAN 70.3 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on May 21. The win in Michigan moves her one step closer to the IRONMAN World Championship, which will be held in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, next month.

“I am so happy with how today went at the Ironman 70.3 Steelhead race,” said Jackson. “It’s always an absolute honor to cross the line first, but for me, today was another stepping stone in my progress towards the IRONMAN World Championships, and I’m excited with where my fitness is. Training for the world championships is a daily commitment starting with my training and nutrition, which is so important, and I am thankful for the support I receive from my sponsor, Herbalife Nutrition, for always making sure I have the proper nutrition I need to cross the finish line.”

Rich Goudis, CEO of Herbalife Nutrition, adds, “We applaud Heather Jackson on another tremendous win leading up to the IRONMAN World Championship. Her commitment and perseverance inspire us all, and everyone at Herbalife Nutrition is cheering for her.  We are proud to be part of her journey to the world championship.”
