We need your help to stay compliant!
From February 1-28 the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will be enforcing Rule 40 of the Olympic Charter, which limits what USANA and its Associates can do to promote its sponsored athletes on all social media outlets and through any marketing or advertising tools. Rule 40 prohibits competitors, coaches, trainers, and officials who participate in the Olympic Games from allowing their person, name, picture, or sports performance to be used for advertising purposes during the Games.
This means that during the Games, USANA and its Associates CANNOT use the above athletes for promotional purposes. It could jeopardize their standing at the Games and can put them at risk of being disqualified from competitions and/or losing their medals.
