February may be the shortest month of the year, but it’s been a jam packed one for our Team USANA athletes. If you haven’t kept up to date—trust me, I get that it’s a lot to stay on top of—here are ten of the past month’s most fun and impressive highlights.
- Since the end of January, Brand Ambassador Brittany Bowe has captured her 14th, 15th and 16th World Cup medal of the season, received the Oscar Mathisen Award for displaying the most outstanding speed skating performance for the 2014/2015 season, and captured one silver (500m) and two bronze medals (1000m, 1500m) at last weeks World Championships in Russia.
- Brand Ambassador Ivanie Blondin was crowned the 2016 World Champion of the Mass Start event! It was Canada’s first long track world title since 2012, and was the missing piece in the country’s all-time domination at the championships, making them the first to win all seven ladies events at ISU World Single Distance Championships.
- GB Short Track’s Elise Christie was named European Short Track Champion in January and carried her momentum into February, capturing three gold and one silver medal at the season’s last two World Cup events.
- Zheng Saisai stunned Australian Open winner and current No. 2 ranked Angelique Kerber in straight sets during this weeks second round of the Qatar Total Open. It marked Zheng’s first Top 5 defeat!
- WTA star Genie Bouchard took to a different court, as she participated in the 2016 NBA All-Star Celebrity game last weekend in Toronto.
- Caroline Wozniacki has been named Denmark’s flag bearer for the opening ceremonies at Rio and made an appearance in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for the second year in a row.
- Brand Ambassador and five-time World Champion, Tim Bradley officially kicked-off training camp as he preps for his third and final bout with Manny Pacquiao on April 9th.
- USA Luge wrapped up its most successful World Cup season with a record-breaking 19 medals this weekend, making it the most successful season since the organization was formed in 1979!
- The USSA held a groundbreaking U.S. Grand Prix and FIS Freestyle World Cup event in Boston, as it presented the Polartec Big Air at Fenway. The jump reached a height of 140 feet and was 430 feet long, making the Green Monster seem miniscule in size!
- Two-time gold medalist Meaghan Mikkelson made a special appearance on The Dr. Oz Show yesterday to discuss the importance of eye health in the game of hockey, and showed some impressive target practice skills…while blindfolded…in heels.
