Dairy West becomes a Premiere Partner with USS
US Speedskating (USS) and Dairy West are proud to announce a strategic partnership that will bring high quality dairy products to Speed Skating Olympic athletes and hopefuls.
Dairy West has supplied dairy nutrition to USS athletes since 2012 to fuel healthy training and recovery, but this new partnership creates an opportunity for the organizations to bring a dynamic focus to health, community engagement and the value of good nutrition when it comes to high performance.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Dairy West and provide our athletes with local dairy products that will help our athletes reach their optimal performance levels, said Ted Morris, USS Executive Director. Nutrition is a critical part of reaching greatness on the ice. Our partnership with Dairy West will ensure our athletes are physically ready to go every time they step on the ice.”
In addition to a shared mission of promoting healthy, nutritious foods for optimum performance, the two organizations will also focus on community engagement with local schools, educating students about the benefits of championship-level nutrition and fuel.
“Through the investment of local dairy farm families, Dairy West is proud to partner with US Speedskating and fuel the athletes with local, nutrient-rich dairy products to fuel greatness,” said Heidi Martin, Dairy West VP-Health and Wellness.
