SHAKLEE PARTNERS WITH U.S. SKI TEAM AND U.S. SNOWBOARDING IN PREPARATION FOR THE 2010 GAMES IN VANCOUVER
PLEASANTON, Calif. – January 22, 2009– 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® 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® for healthy weight management, Shaklee Performance® for hydration and endurance, Physique® 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.

At Shaklee, we don’t just stand behind our products we stand behind the people who use them. For 30 years our products have powered some of the most elite athletes in the world, including the Vancouver Games medal-winning U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding.
|The 2010 Games in Vancouver proved to be the best yet for the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding. Together they brought home 21 medals—more than double the count from the Torino Games in 2006.
Being on the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding requires an incredible amount of hard work and dedication. On top of intense training sessions, extreme temperatures, and high-stress competitions year-round, athletes endure an insanely busy travel schedule. They travel four to five months at a time, to and from Europe, and without a break during the competitive season. And in the summer, they travel to the Southern Hemisphere to train. The challenge in all this is keeping these athletes in the best shape possible. “Our athletes tend to get really run down from all the traveling,” says Troy Flanagan, trainer to the U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding. “The U.S. Ski Team and Snowboarding have been working with Shaklee since 1980. The teams rely on the quality and efficacy of Shaklee nutrition products to keep our athletes healthy.* Some of the team’s favorites are Shaklee Vitalizer™, NutriFeron®, and Shaklee Defend & Resist Complex.”
In addition, these athletes are subjected to strict testing standards, which means they have to be very careful about what they put in their bodies. “We teach our athletes to be very brand-conscious and to read the labels of all the products they’re taking to ensure that they don’t inadvertently take something that they could potentially test positive to,” says Flanagan. “We know Shaklee tests their products. Our athletes can rest assured that what they take from Shaklee is safe, legal, and within the rules and spirit of the competition.”
