USANA athletes score big in Beijing with 21 medals

USANA, the Cellular Nutrition Company, proudly sponsors some of the most elite athletes and teams around the globe and celebrates its brand ambassador’s and partners’ performances during the Winter Games.

With 146 athletes from six countries — Canada, Germany, Italy, Mexico, South Korea, and the United States—USANA athletes competed in a dozen disciplines and left Beijing with 21 medals—eight gold, eight silver, and five bronze.

Of those medals, veteran Canadian hockey star Natalie Spooner bagged her third consecutive Olympic medal, and second gold, while helping to lead Canada to a 3–2 win over the USA. American aerialist Ashley Caldwell competed in her fourth consecutive Games, capturing the first medal of her career—a gold—in the inaugural mixed team event.

“I’ve been on the hunt for gold for a long time now, and it has truly an honor to represent Team USA in my fourth Olympics,” say’s Caldwell. “I have been pushing myself as hard as I can to do new tricks, be the best in the world, and inspire others to push themselves to be their best as well. Reaching my highest level and getting my body to perform at its peak would not be possible without the high quality and sport safe vitamins and supplements from USANA. I’m so grateful and proud to be part of the USANA family!”
