Thorne renews sponsorship of USA Curling

(STEVENS POINT, Wis.) – USA Curling announced today a renewal of its partnership with Thorne as the official nutritional supplement supplier as well as the health and wellness partner of the organization.

Thorne is one of the world’s leading health and wellness, technology, and supplement companies that has been aiding USA Curling’s Olympic and Paralympic program national team athletes since 2017.

“Thorne’s commitment to scientifically backed, sports-safe nutritional products and supplements is unparalleled in this industry,” said Rick Patzke, USA Curling’s chief executive officer. “The health benefits as well as peace of mind that Thorne products provide for our athletes are a critical part of the foundation for high performance. The secret’s out, though, that these products aren’t just for athletes. They are for anyone who wants to enjoy a better quality of life, and I’d encourage anyone suffering from common ailments rampant in our society to check out what Thorne and their newest partner, Onegevity, have to offer.”

As part of its commitment to assist U.S. national teams, Thorne will be working directly with USA Curling’s athletic trainer, coaches and staff to provide the highest level of product to athletes.

“USA Curling has continued to show success on the world stage,” said Paul Jacobson, CEO of Thorne. “We are excited to continue assisting them and their athletes to perform at their best by addressing performance issues through testing, data-based solutions and Thorne supplements.
