Olympian Andy Potts joins Redfox’s Exclusive Athlete Ambassador Team
November 5, 2013––Colorado Springs, Colo.––Redfox Wireless, Audio in Motion, announced today that Olympic triathlete Andy Potts is one of an exclusive team of Redfox Athlete Ambassadors.
“Andy is a great addition to the team,” says Redfox Wireless CEO Josh Cates. “Not only is he an athletic powerhouse, he sees wireless technology as the obvious choice.”
Whether draft-legal or non-drafting, Olympic distance, 70.3 or Ironman, Potts has established himself as one of the most versatile triathletes in the world. After turning professional in 2003, Potts was named USAT Rookie of the Year. With only 18 months of triathlon specific training, he realized his childhood dream of becoming an Olympian by earning a spot to the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, where he finished 22nd. Since then, Potts has become a regular podium presence winning his first World Cup in 2005 and finishing the 2006 season ranked third in the world. In 2007, Potts blew up the triathlon scene by winning the Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro. He followed that impressive performance by winning the Ironman 70.3 World Championship. Consequently, Potts was named USA Triathlon’s non-drafting and draft legal Triathlete of the Year, as well as Triathlete Magazine’s All-Round Triathlete of the Year.
“Redfox is presenting new options for people to choose wireless. It’s an extension of their active lifestyle,” says Potts. “Redfox is enabling people to be active and pursue the passions that ignite them without holding them back by wires.” Training as an Ironman triathlete, Potts’ focus is on training hard. “We have excruciatingly long workouts where we’re exposed to the elements and our bodies and minds are taking a lot of abuse. Anything that can help me with the task at hand is a huge benefit, and I typically use music as a motivator. The Redfox wireless headset pairs great with my LifeProof protected iPhone and streams music clearly to keep me motivated, while still allowing me to hear ambient noise while I am training,” says Potts, who points to Redfox’s Edge wireless headset as the ideal tool to allow him to keep his body primed for the task at hand, while keeping him motivated with inspirational tunes.
