“The collaboration between Nutrilite and Liu Xiang is a world-class partnership,” says Dr. Sam Rehnborg, President of the Nutrilite Health Institute. “Just like Nutrilite, Liu Xiang continues to excel and challenge the competition. He is an ideal spokesperson to represent the true character of the Nutrilite brand. Quixtar IBOs in North America and Amway business owners around the world are looking forward to following his successes on the track, particularly in the 2008 Olympics.”
Only 23, Liu Xiang has already conquered a long list of races. He took the bronze medal in the men’s 60m hurdles at the 2003 International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Indoor Champs, the first medal for China in 18 years.
Xiang then went on to win the gold in the 110m hurdles at the 2004 Summer Olympics. In July 2006 he set a new world record in the 110 meters hurdles with a time of 12.88 seconds, at the Super Grand Prix in Lausanne. Xiang was recently voted the number one most recognized athlete in China and completed 2006 as the number one ranked 110m hurdler by the IAAF.
The cooperation between Nutrilite and Liu Xiang will be comprehensive and tailored to fit Xiang’s specific athletic needs. Nutrilite, a leader in research and development on health and nutrition, will work closely with the China Track and Field Association to provide consulting services to Liu Xiang.
“I’m very excited to be a global brand spokesperson for Nutrilite,” said Xiang. “I will definitely work to deliver the Nutrilite philosophy of optimal health to every corner of the world.”
