Mountaineer Geri Winkler and SYNOTABS® – partners for healthy joints
Geri Winkler becomes SYNOTABS® ambassador for CROMA
Vienna, 21 November 2012 – The well-known Austrian extreme mountaineer and adventurer Geri Winkler will act as ambassador and advertiser for the dietary supplement SYNOTABS® from CROMA. Geri Winkler relies on the joint support and protection offered by SYNOTABS® even on his extreme tours.
Geri Winkler made headlines for the first time in 1987 when he became the first diabetic to successfully complete a marathon. Since then Geri has completed many expeditions and adventure trekking tours in every part of the world, demonstrating that these sorts of tours and travel are also possible for diabetics.
Seven Summits and nEVEREST 9000+
One of the high points in Geri’s long list of successes was completing the climbs that made up the Seven Summits: Between 2001 and 2008 Geri Winkler climbed the highest peak on every continent.
Geri received particular attention with the project nEVEREST 9000+: Between October 2005 and June 2006 Geri conquered the largest climb possible on our planet from the lowest point on the earth, the Dead Sea in Jordan, to the peak of Mount Everest, which he reached as the first climber on 20 May 2006 via the south route. The only other climbers to conquer this maximum ascent apart from Geri Winkler were three members of a British expedition. Geri is the first diabetic in the world and also the first person from Vienna on the peak of Mount Everest.
Dietary supplement to protect and strengthen the joints
SYNOTABS®, the dietary supplement for healthy joints from CROMA, was Geri’s constant companion on his tours. Geri says, ‘On my tours and expeditions, my joints are placed under incredible strain. I can say that, based on my own experiences, the dietary supplement SYNOTABS® containing glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate helped to support my cartilage and to protect my joints. That’s why I am pleased about the professional partnership with CROMA.’
CROMA Managing Director Andreas Prinz: ‘We are very happy to have found in Geri Winkler a person who can authentically speak for SYNOTABS® based on his own experiences.
