SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — (NYSE: USNA) Team USA’s run in the 2014 FIFA World Cup may not have ended the way fans had hoped this summer, but the nation’s and USANA Health Sciences’ love of soccer is only growing stronger. So much so that the U.S.-based nutritional company recently partnered with two-time Olympic gold medalist and U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (U.S. WNT) star, Carli Lloyd.
The New Jersey native currently plays for the Western New York Flash in the National Women’s Soccer League, and is looking to make her third World Cup appearance next summer in Canada. Lloyd joins more than 600-plus elite athletes who choose USANA to supplement their health, including Colombia’s America de Cali soccer team and theMexican Soccer Federation.
- Netted the gold medal–winning goals in two consecutive Summer Games—2008 Beijing and 2012 London—and is the only player in Olympic history to achieve this feat.
- Represented the U.S. in two FIFA Women’s World Cup tournaments in which she helped Team USA win bronze (2007) and silver (2011).
- Has reached 50 career goals, the most ever in U.S. history for a WNT player playing exclusively midfield.
Carli Lloyd, U.S. WNT Midfielder
“Eating healthy definitely helps in all aspects when it comes to training and performing, but USANA helps give me that extra boost I need to push myself to the limit and stay ahead of my competition. I am thrilled to be working with a company that values my health the way I do.”
Dan Macuga, USANA Chief Communications Officer
“Soccer is the most commonly played sport in the world and is one that all 19 of our markets can relate to. We are excited to expand our Team USANA roster to represent an array of sports, and welcome an athlete as accomplished and inspirational as Carli to the USANA family. We look forward to working with her as she works toward World Cup gold.”
