Athletes at London 2012 Olympics Preparing to Keep Cool During the Heat of Competition

Westwood, NJ (PRWEB) June 26, 2012

The elite athletes of the World will soon be assembling in London, ready for the battles that lay ahead. Years of dedicated training, commitment and sacrifice, have provided them one chance for glory, an opportunity to become an Olympic Champion. Yet this chance to stand upon the Dias may all come down to one brief moment in time, one extra tiny effort, one vital decision. To be the best on that one day, an athlete must be completely prepared so that they can perform at their peak, and ensure that their competition will not have the upper hand.

So at the London 2012 Olympics games, those prepared teams and athletes who strive for the ultimate glory, will again have their Arctic Heat Body Cooling Vests chilled and ready for action. Hostile climatic conditions have played spoilsport for many unprepared athletes during the past Athens and Beijing Olympics. However, the organized teams had their Arctic Heat cool vests available, which helped to take them over the finish line in style.

A cooling vest from Arctic Heat is designed to help prevent an athlete’s performance being affected by the heat. These light weight vests, also known as ice vests, were used with astounding success during the previous two Olympics. Sports Science has established that the performance of athletes in warm weather can be enhanced by precooling their bodies. Pre-cooled competitors tend to sweat less, they have relatively lower heart rates, and as a result more energy can be directed towards producing personal bests rather than trying to keep the body cool.

Olympic competitors from the USA, Australia, UK, Germany, South Africa and other countries are going to be using these cool vests to gain a competitive edge over their competition. Football, Hockey, Cycling, BMX, Tennis, Rowing, Kayak, Archery, Marathon and Middle to Long distance Track events are just some of the disciplines where the body cooling vests will be on standby.

“London is well known for unpredictable summer weather. It is unlikely to be hot every day, but there will be some warm weather. Some teams will have their Arctic Heat cooling vests ready and other athletes are going to look back and wonder why they weren´t as prepared,” said Dean Sainsbury from Arctic Heat USA.

About the Company: Arctic Heat USA is the worldwide leader in manufacturing premium quality lightweight cooling vests. Their Arctic Heat body cooling vests will be used during the forthcoming 2012 London Olympics. The cooling vests are also widely used in industry, by people with multiple sclerosis and whenever heat stress is an issue.
