More than 600 athletes worldwide trust their health to USANA, and for the past three years or so What’s Up, USANA? has been your source for updates involving many of these world-class athletes.

Team USANA features tennis players, skiers, snowboarders, swimmers, race car drivers, speed skaters, and more.

But perhaps the fastest-growing group of athletes — at least from my experience — is boxers.

Whether it’s an Olympic bronze medalist or an up-and-coming pro, a rising star, or a world champ, we’re learning about more and more boxers who are fans of USANA’s nutritional supplements.

Congratulations, Mark!

Mark Rickert, one of our good friends of social media, recently completed the Shiprock Marathon in 4 hours, 58 minutes.

Not only was it Mark’s first marathon, but it also launched The Nizhoni Foundation. “We climb, run, swim, and bike for starving children,” he says.

You might remember Mark from this blog post following his triumphant “Climb for Hope 2011.”

Who’s Watching the French Open?

The French Open, one of the year’s four Grand Slam tennis events, is happening now through June 10. Please join us in cheering on WTA USANA Brand Ambassadors, many (but not all) of whom are scheduled to compete on the red clay of Roland Garros.

USANA’s current Brand Ambassadors are: Kim Clijsters, Liezel Huber, Zheng Jie, Melanie Oudin, Sam Stosur, and Aleksandra Wozniak! USANA is the official health supplement supplier of the WTA. We’re wishing all the players the best.

It’s even more exciting this year, considering USANA is now open in France!
