NEW YORK - APRIL 2012 – Infusium 23, the hair-care problem experts since 1924, is proud to announce its sponsorship of the United States Synchronized Swimming National Team on its journey to win gold at the 2012 Summer Olympics. The partnership kicks off in April 2012 with a program that will include a social media campaign as well as a national sweepstakes.

Infusium 23’s iconic brand has long provided women with a range of 3-step systems for a variety of hair care needs. Its products are scientifically designed to protect and build healthy hair while also helping to defend against the damaging effects of environmental elements and daily styling habits. The brand’s product line and support of strong, healthy women are a natural fit for this sponsorship. USA Synchro’s mission not only focuses on female leadership, development, and empowerment within the organization, but the sport itself requires endurance, strength, and control while under pressure.

“With the number of hours our athletes spend training in the water, their hair can take a beating,” says Terry Harper, USA Synchro’s Executive Director. “Infusium 23 products exemplify high quality, high performance and excellence, which are what each of our athletes strives for every day. This partnership between Infusium 23 and us is a great fit."

USA Synchro is a not-for-profit organization that services the sport at all levels. The national team, comprised of 10 women, has represented the U.S. in the Olympics since 1996. In 2011, USA Synchro won the silver medals in both the team and duet competitions at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. The team is currently training for the Olympic Qualification Tournament in London, April 18- 22.

“It is an honor to work with and support women of this caliber,” says Rick Cutler, Marketing Director at Idelle Management Company. “Each of these athletes, individually and as a team, embodies the values of passion, drive and spirit that are important to us as a brand. We are proud to align with an organization that mirrors our ideals.”
