Pospisil’s sticky Canadian brew
– Canada’s Vasek Pospisil found a patriotic way to refuel while competing in Sunday’s final at the Open Sud de France in Montpellier – he drank maple syrup straight from a bottle.
Pospisil, who was playing in his first ATP Tour final since 2014, was caught on camera swigging the sticky substance from a glass bottle on a changeover during his 7-5 6-3 loss to Frenchman Gael Monfils.
World No 104 Pospisil even took to Twitter on Monday to acknowledge the very Canadian on-court moment.
“Maple Syrup: Best Sports performance drink. Anti-cancerous properties. Rich in nutrients & minerals... Shockingly good in coffee. A great friend. You’re Welcome, World,” Pospisil, 29, tweeted along with a video.
Canada is the world’s largest exporter of maple syrup products. –
