Shaklee Partners With U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding in Preparation for the 2010 Games in Vancouver
Date:1/26/2009

PLEASANTON, Calif., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Shaklee Corporation, the leading natural nutrition company in the United States, is the official nutrition supplier for the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding throughout their training for the 2010 Games in Vancouver, continuing a relationship that began in 1980. Founded in 1956, Shaklee has been supporting elite athletes for decades -- more than 54 gold medals have been awarded to Shaklee-powered world-class athletes.

"We currently use these products to enhance the hydration status and energy requirements of our athletes' demanding training schedules and busy lifestyles," says Troy Flanagan, Director of Sport Science for the U.S. Ski and Snowboarding Association, the national governing body for the U.S. ski and snowboarding teams. "Shaklee nutritional supplements are the only choice for us and are proving to be critical to our preparation for the 2010 Games!"

Flanagan says Shaklee products are instrumental in allowing the teams to perform at a high level in very rigorous conditions.

"U.S. Ski Team athletes travel four to five months straight each year, flying to winter conditions in many different countries throughout the world. Shaklee's NutriFeron(R) helps boost their immune systems* as they push through jet lag, drastic temperature changes, tough training, and the stress of competition," he says.

The U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding use a broad assortment of Shaklee supplements, including Vitalizer for overall health and wellness, NutriFeron and Defend & Resist Complex for immune support, Cinch(R) for healthy weight management, Shaklee Performance(R) for hydration and endurance, Physique(R) for post workout recovery, Joint Health Complex for healthy joints, Joint & Muscle Pain Cream for after those grueling workouts, and many others.*

Shaklee products are supported by over 90 Shaklee peer-reviewed scientific papers and are available only through Shaklee Distributors.

"At the U.S. Ski and Snowboarding Association (USSA), we make sure that the supplements that our athletes competing in the 2010 Games are taking are extremely safe and reliable," Flanagan says. "That's why USSA athletes are only provided with Shaklee products, which are manufactured to the highest standards."

Shaklee is proud to be the official nutritional sponsor of the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding, a relationship that began over 29 years ago and has since provided the nutritional fuel that helped support the teams in winning 10 medals in the 2006 Winter Games in Turin, Italy, and is currently helping to power the ski team and snowboarders in preparation for the 2010 Games in Vancouver.
