Shaklee Corporation, which since 1980 has been the exclusive nutritional sponsor of the U.S. ski team and U.S. snowboarding team, congratulates the teams for taking home 21 medals at the Winter Olympics, including six gold medals at the games in Vancouver.

Comprised of 14 different men’s and women’s national teams, the U.S. ski team, which includes leading athletes across Alpine, cross country, disabled, freestyle and jumping/Nordic combined categories, and U.S. snowboarding have long trusted Shaklee Nutrition. This 30-year partnership is a natural fit because both the U.S. ski team and U.S. snowboarding are aligned with Shaklee’s dedication to scientific research, quality control and science-based products.

“I am so proud to be associated with a company whose heritage has always been about improving people’s health and their ability to reach personal goals,” said Bill Loberg of rural Emmons, an independent Shaklee distributor along with his wife, Jeanne Loberg. “It’s very exciting to be a part of this wonderful achievement.”

“What makes our partnership so successful is our unwavering commitment to nutritional standards and product safety,” said Roger Barnett, chairman and CEO of Shaklee Corporation. “By conducting over 80,000 quality tests each year, we guarantee the purity and effectiveness of each and every product our athletes and consumers use.”

Working to optimize the athletes’ health and performance, the U.S. ski team and U.S. snowboarding sport science director, Troy Flanagan, works closely with Shaklee to create a nutritional regimen that helps to give them an edge over the competition.

“Shaklee products are invaluable to our U.S. ski team and U.S. snowboarding,” said Flanagan. “By working with the No. 1 natural nutrition company in the U.S., we’re confident that we’re providing our athletes with the best, cutting-edge products to help ensure optimal body conditioning.”

To help maintain health and wellness, the U.S. Ski team and U.S. snowboarding nutrition teams recommend that their athletes take several Shaklee nutritional products to boost their immune systems, whether they’re pushing through jet lag, harsh temperatures, tough training or the stress of competition.

As the skiers and snowboarders travel four to five months straight each year, the Shaklee nutrient, energy and hydration products help them to perform at the highest level despite rigorous conditions.
