When the 2012 London Games commence on July 27 with the highly anticipated Opening Ceremonies, it will ignite 17 days of world-class competition and fuel memories to last a lifetime.
We’re fortunate in that no matter which country we call home, we’re all able to rally around a common team — Team USANA.
We encourage you to show your Team USANA pride by sharing the news on your Facebook wall or tweeting about the athletes using the #TeamUSANA hash tag.
Longtime readers of What’s Up, USANA? will remember the immense pride all of us felt as we watched nearly 100 members of Team USANA competed in the 2010 Vancouver Games. Those athletes brought home 22 medals.
This time, in London, Team USANA is 60+ strong. And we’re excited to cheer on these elite athletes, each of whom trusts his or her health to USANA.
