While we don’t plan on marketing Chocomize as the next big sports food, custom chocolate certainly seems to be fueling Chocomize founding partner Nick’s rowing career. Next week Nick heads off to Switzerland for the final leg of the Rowing World Cup series in Lucerne. Nick originally picked up rowing on the Saugatuck River in his hometown of Weston, Ct while still in middle school. He continued to develop his talent at Phillips Exeter Academy and then Columbia University where he was the team captain his senior year. Nick’s impressive career continues as he races in his second year of international competition. As you may recall Nick represented the United States last year at the Rowing World Championships in Poznan Poland.
Nick has been working hard, balancing his training and his role as partner at Chocomize. Nick hopes to return to the Rowing World Championships this fall in New Zealand with his eye fixed firmly on the 2012 Olympics in London. Between partners, interns and chocolate makers the Chocomize team is host to 8 rowers including Olympians Sam Stitt and Beijing Bronze Medal winner Steve Copolla… perhaps we should put together our own team? We wish Chocomizers Nick, Jimmy, Anthony, Sam and Steve the best of luck in Lucerne… perhaps they will even convert some Swiss chocolatiers into Chocomize fans!
