Health and wellness company USANA Health Sciences supports more than 600 elite athletes worldwide. Nearly 200 of those sponsored athletes have been selected to contend in next month’s Winter Games.
The 2014 Games, held in Sochi, Russia, will feature 12 brand-new events, including the luge team relay and women’s ski jumping. “Team USANA” sponsored athletes, which hail from 11 organizations in four countries, will compete in 11 separate sports. They include former Game participants and current USANA brand ambassadors Meaghan Mikkelson-Reid (Women’s Canada Hockey), Billy Demong (U.S. Ski and Snowboard) and Taylor Fletcher (U.S. Ski and Snowboard).
The number of athletes representing Team USANA has doubled over the Vancouver Games in 2010. The contenders will be eligible for 82 of the 98 medal events held in February. USANA also supported more than 60 athletes at the Summer Games in London.
