Athletes are always breaking records and pushing boundaries. They work hard. They train hard. They eat, sleep and drink to win. Proper nutrition is vital, so it’s no wonder more than 1000 world-class athletes — including the Women’s Tennis Association — trust USANA supplements to keep them in top shape. We’re even more proud to announce that 14 of those elite athletes from Australia are making their way to Brazil for a chance to capture gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Competing in everything from tennis to track and field, swimming to shooting and boxing to badminton, Team USANA is the one to watch! So who are these athletes that are attending RIO? Keeping reading and you’ll find out!
Winning is what Team USANA is all about. Our athletes compete in many sports and speak various languages, yet they all have one thing in common: they’re all winners. From Grand Slam titles to championship belts, they are among the most decorated competitors in the world.
Important: Staying compliant is Key!
From July 27 – August 24 (Olympics) and August 30 – September 21 (Paralympics), the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will be enforcing Rule 40 of the Olympic Charter, which limits what USANA and its Associates can do to promote its sponsored athletes on all social media outlets and through any marketing or advertising tools. Rule 40 prohibits competitors, coaches, trainers, and officials who participate in the Olympic Games from allowing their person, name, picture, or sports performance to be used for advertising purposes during the Games.
This means that during the Games, you CANNOT use the above athletes for promotional purposes. It could jeopardize their standing at the Games and can put them at risk of being disqualified from competitions and/or losing their medals.
With that in mind, we kindly ask that you refer to Team USANA’s social media outlets — Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram — for all approved and shareable content in order to avoid violating the IOC’s guidelines.
The USANA family wishes each elite athlete good luck in the upcoming RIO Olympics. We will be cheering you on all the way!
