SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA), a global nutritional supplements company, today announced Olympic Pro Snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis and Alpine Skier Nolan Kasper as its newest brand ambassadors. Both athletes are members of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA), who USANA announced a partnership with last August.
Arguably the most dominant snowboardcross rider in the business, Jacobellis secured the title of winningest female in Winter X Games history after securing her fourth consecutive gold medal during the 2011 trial. She also holds three World Cup wins, a silver medal from the 2006 Olympic Winter Games, and most recently, the Telluride FIS Snowboard World Cup title to become the only American to take first in the tournament.
"My demanding training schedule really taxes my body, so I'm excited to be partnering with a nutritional company I can trust to safely and effectively replenish my strength and health," said Jacobellis. "USANA understands that every person has different health needs so they've really focused on providing personalized nutrition. I love that I can choose which vitamins and nutritional products will help me perform at my personal best."
During the 2011 season, Kasper won the Europa Cup slalom title to take his first World Cup podium, and finished the season 17th in slalom after beginning the winter with a ranking of 56th.
"USANA makes products that work and fit every lifestyle which is extremely important for an athlete like myself," said Kasper. "I'm grateful USANA has chosen to partner with the USSA. I wouldn't trust my health to any other company and look forward to working with them."
As USANA brand ambassadors, Jacobellis and Kasper will represent the company publicly and help to educate consumers about the value and importance of using supplements that are safe, effective and manufactured to the highest quality.
