KT Tape® and the United States Olympic Committee have partnered to create an inspiring “Working Out With Team USA presented by KT Tape” video series. Over the coming months, the series will share the story of six athletes and their journeys to reach performance goals and chase their Olympic and Paralympic dreams.

The series highlights six KT Tape athlete ambassadors, including Olympic and Paralympic medalists and hopefuls. Among them are beach volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings, marathoner Meb Keflezighi, Paralympic skier Oksana Masters, speedskaters Thomas Hong and Mia Manganello, and alpine skier Julia Mancuso. Through weekly videos and digital content, viewers will get a detailed look at the athletes’ training regimen, and learn how Team USA athletes utilize KT Tape and other tools to achieve peak performance on the world stage.

Individual profiles of each athlete will be released on TeamUSA.org, with supporting content on the Team USA digital channels, including KT Tape instructional videos and behind-the-scenes content on Instagram. The complete series and additional information on how athletes use KT Tape will also be available on KTTape.com.
