As the morning air becomes crisper and everything you consume begins to taste a lot like pumpkin spice, the types of sports we tend to watch on the weekends, while decked out in our favorite teams gear and go-to pair of sweats, also change with the season.
Thankfully, while USANA’s spring and summer athletes prepare for a much-deserved off-season, Team USANA’s fall and winter athletes are only getting started.
Whether you’re into football, soccer, skiing, snowboarding or speed skating, Team USANA dabbles in it all. So when you’re flipping through the channels make sure to stop and give some love and support to the athletes who trust their health to the same products you do! We’re one big family after all!
Football Meets Fútbol
The 29-year-old, six-foot-one running back began his professional career in 2009 with the Jacksonville Jaguars and played a season with the Raiders in 2013 as a free agent where he had career-high totals in rushing attempts (163), yards (733), touchdowns (six), and a career-best 36 receptions for 292 yards.
To date, Jennings holds 91 carries for 396 yards with the Giants and has scored two touchdowns.
Also joining the Team USANA roster is two-time Olympic gold medalist and U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team star, Carli Lloyd. The New Jersey native is looking to make her third World Cup appearance next summer in Canada and is the only player in Olympic history to net both gold medal-winning goals in two consecutive Summer Games—2008 Beijing and 2012 London!
Winter is Coming…
… and Team USANA’s winter athletes have headed back to the slopes and rinks!
Over the weekend, U.S. Nordic combined ambassador Bryan Fletcher won his first national title at the U.S. Nordic Combined Championships in Lake Placid, jumping to a one minute 34 second lead over brother Taylor Fletcher, who took home silver. If that weren’t enough, Bryan also recently tied the knot!
World Champion Sarah Hendrickson recently returned to competition with a pair of second place finishes on the HS105 jump at a FIS Continental Cup in Trondheim—her first international podiums in over a year (due to her August 2013 injury).
Hendrickson continued her podium success last weekend, capturing her third career national title at the K95 U.S. Ski Jumping Championships in Lake Placid, out jumping teammate Jessica Jerome—who placed second—by a single point.
Four-time world champion, Timothy Bradley (31-1) is heading back to Las Vegas on December 13 (HBO) to take on Diego Chaves (23-2) of Argentina in a 12-round welterweight fight at The Cosmopolitan! Be sure to follow Bradley to see how he’s preparing for this bout on Instagram, @timbradleyjr.
