Colombia National Soccer Team Players* Focus on Nutrition to Enhance Their Game
Herbalife sponsored the Colombia Men’s National Team during international soccer competition in 2014. The team was headlined by stars Mario Alberto Yepes, David Ospina and Faryd Mondragón.
“We’ve been training hard this year and we’re thrilled to be in competition,” says team captain Yepes.
Yepes, known to his fans and teammates as “Super Mario,” started his career as a forward before becoming a defender. He has earned championships playing for Colombia, France and Italy.
Ospina is the youngest Colombian soccer player to achieve two League titles and the second youngest goalkeeper in history to start for the Colombia national soccer team. He’s known for his quick reflexes and reactions in challenging situations.
Mondragón, a skilled goalkeeper, is a 20-year veteran and long-time member of the Colombia national soccer team, since 1993. He also competed in the 1992 Summer Olympic Games in Barcelona.
Yepes, Ospina and Mondragón are all focusing on a nutrition and training regimen to help them perform at their best.
“As athletes, life is especially demanding and we have to always be careful about what we eat and when we eat,” says Yepes. “Using Herbalife® products helps us to support our nutritional needs and maintain our energy levels.”
