SALT LAKE CITY, Apr 23, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) — USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (USANA), a worldwide leader in science-based nutritional supplements, today announced it has signed a two-year sponsorship agreement to be the official supplement supplier of nationally ranked USA Bobsled Team Radcliff.

“I’ve done a lot of research on a variety of supplements and found the absorption rate of USANA’s products into the system is unmatched,” said Ivan Radcliff, 34, a World Cup silver medalist and a member of five world championship teams. “That’s what helped me earn a fourth-place finish at the final race of the season in Lake Placid, N.Y.”

USA Bobsled Team Radcliff, currently ranked fourth nationally, features Radcliff and Jim Carriel, and will include two athletes yet to be selected. USANA’s agreement with the team extends through the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.


“I’m very pleased to be associated with such a great company and I look forward to the future, including Vancouver,” said Radcliff, who trains in Park City, Utah, and works for the Park City Fire District. “I’ve known about USANA for years because of its association with the US Speedskating Team and appreciate the way the company stands behind its athletes.”

USANA continues to be the trusted name in nutrition among many of the world’s premier winter athletes, including the US Speedskating Team, USA Luge and Speed Skating Canada. Six USANA products recently received certification through NSF International’s Certified for Sport(TM) program. NSF’s independent certification helps athletes make educated decisions about the safety of the dietary supplements they choose to take.

“USANA is proud to associate itself with the world’s greatest athletes and is thrilled to sponsor USA Bobsled Team Radcliff as it prepares for the Vancouver Winter Games,” USANA President Dave Wentz said. “We recognize that proper nutrition is vital to athletic success, which is why we’re pleased to provide these world-class athletes with the highest quality nutritional supplements.”
