Shaklee Pure Performance Athletes are London Bound
From the Power of Shaklee 7/2012
We’re excited to announce that a total of eight Shaklee-powered athletes will be competing in the 2012 Games in London! Shaklee Sports Nutrition™ is powering our elite athletes and fueling their dreams from start to finish, so that they can train longer, recover faster and perform better to make their record-breaking achievements possible.
Shaklee would like to once again congratulate our Pure Performance Team athletes who have qualified for the Games in London this summer, and introduce you to four more members of our team.
Caryn Davies, Rower, is a two-time Games participant who holds both silver and gold medals. Along with her team, Caryn broke the world record in May 2012 in the preliminary heat at the Rowing World Cup in Lucerne, Switzerland. Always one to push herself, if she ever feels like quitting, Caryn relies on her team. Says Caryn, “Sometimes I realize the ridiculousness of spending hours and hours a day sitting on my butt traveling backwards. But I also know how special it is to have teammates who count on you and care whether or not you show up every morning. That’s what keeps me coming back.”
Eleanor Logan, Rower, took home the gold in Beijing in 2008 and won a silver medal in the pairs competition at the 2012 Samsung World Rowing Cup II.
Both Davies and Logan were on the women's eight team that brought home the gold in Beijing in 2008, and they will be defending their gold medals in London in a few weeks! Watch for them on July 29 and August 2.
Corey Cogdell, International Trapshooter, is headed to the Games for a second time, and for Corey, making history is par for the course. At the 2008 Beijing Games, Cogdell became the first American woman to medal in the sport of trap (shotgun) shooting—a mere two years after she began competing in 2006. Corey loves the Cinch® product line and has lost 15 lbs† so far on the program. Cogdell competes on August 4.
Keith Sanderson. Rapid Fire Pistol Shooter, is a U.S. Marine and two-time Games participant whose final score at June’s qualifying competition tied a world record and secured his spot at the London Games. Sanderson’s swift ascent in the sport of men’s rapid fire pistol shooting included a fifth-place finish in the 2008 Games, and culminated in 2009 when he was the top-ranked shooter in the world. A devastating forearm injury in 2010 cost Sanderson his No. 1 ranking, but with the 2012 London Games on the horizon, and a current standing as the No. 3 men’s rapid fire pistol shooter in the world, Sanderson has redemption in his sights. Sanderson competes August 2-3.
