England rugby international Jonny May has become a brand ambassador for wearable infrared performance clothing brand, KYMIRA.
The 32-year-old will now use the brand’s products as part of his training and recovery as he aims to steer Gloucester Rugby to domestic and European success this season, and to be a part of the England squad for the 2023 Six Nations and 2023 Rugby World Cup.
May, who has joined KYMIRA as it launches its new activewear range, the ‘Legacy Project’, has been added to the group’s client portfolio which includes athletes and clubs from a range of sports including football, rugby union, golf and cycling.
May commented: “I’m delighted to join the team at KYMIRA as an ambassador. I’ve been using their products for a while now and they’ve become an integral part of my training and recovery routine.
“I’m always looking for new ways to gain those small percentages which make such a difference in elite sport and I place a high premium on implementing techniques which can help me stay fit and firing on the rugby pitch.
“KYMIRA products aim to do just that and I hope they can help power me towards club and international success in this massive year ahead for me.”
During his 12-year professional career, he has won the Six Nations title with England three times, including one Grand Slam, and was an integral part of the team that reached the 2019 Rugby World Cup final.
He has played for Gloucester Rugby and Leicester Tigers, scoring 101 tries in more than 200 club appearances.
“Jonny’s record in club and international rugby speaks for itself and we’re delighted one of the most decorated players in the history of English rugby has joined our team as an ambassador,” added KYMIRA Founder, Timothy Brownstone.
“Few athletes look after themselves better than Jonny and the value he places on training and recovery chime perfectly with what we’re doing at KYMIRA, for both elite athletes like Jonny and the everyday sports person or fitness enthusiast.
“We’re looking forward to supporting Jonny in his goals for the rest of the 2022/23 season and beyond”.
The announcement follows the brand’s recent signing of partnership with football club Swansea in December.
KYMIRA now aims to provide ‘game-changing solutions’ to contribute to the overall wellness of the players of the Championship side.
