KT Tape and U.S. Olympic Committee launch “Working Out With Team USA presented by KT Tape” video series
Program kicks off Sunday, August 13, on NBCSN
AMERICAN FORK, Utah – KT Tape® and the United States Olympic Committee will unveil an inspiring “Working Out With Team USA presented by KT Tape” video series this weekend. 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. “Working Out With Team USA presented by KT Tape” debuts with a special 30-minute television broadcast on NBCSN on Sunday, Aug. 13, at 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. PT, and continues online on TeamUSA.org, as well as across Team USA and KT Tape digital platforms.
“We are excited for the debut of ‘Working out with Team USA presented by KT Tape’ and for the opportunity to showcase how KT Tape is supporting Olympians, Paralympians and hopefuls in their journeys. This is a dynamic series that truly embodies the drive of each athlete and their determination to be the best,” said Greg Venner, chief executive officer of KT Tape. “We are proud to support Team USA, and we hope to encourage athletes everywhere to continue to push themselves to finish stronger.”
We are excited to welcome Ryan Wright as our newest KT Tape sponsored athlete. Ryan is currently one of the most dominant players in the Taiwan Super Basketball League, and is the current league Slam Dunk and Scoring Champion.
The 69" 240 pound forward from Toronto, Canada currently leads the Taiwan Super Basketball League (SBL) in scoring at 19.3 points per game, a 54% field goal average, and ranks second in rebounding at 12.9 rebounds per game. Wright also placed top ten in both blocks and in steals at 1.0bpg and 1.5spg respectively.
Demonstrating his love for the sport Wright also quickly developed into a fan favorite despite being the youngest import in the league, as he became the 2012 SBL Slam Dunk Champion and Scoring Champion.
His college career panned out at two very successful programs at UCLA and Oklahoma where he competed in two Final Fours and an Elite Eight. Ryan Wright looks to join many of his former college teammates -such as Blake Griffin and Russell Westbrook - to take his game to the next level in the NBA.
So keep your eye on Ryan Wright as he continues to be one of the premier international basketball stars and you just might see him in the NBA in the future.
When the folks at Competitor's TriCenter web tv show wanted to know what all the KT Tape hype was about, we were more than happy to demonstrate. At the PF Chang's Rock N Roll Arizona Marathon last month, TriCenter's Liz Hitchens came by the KT Tape booth to learn more and show viewers how it works.
KT Tape Marketing Manager, Michelle Thompson, showed TriCenter how to tape up a marathon runner for knee pain. Click below to see what that runner said about his confidence level after being taped. The KT Tape segment comes in at about four minutes and 30 seconds into the video...check it out. And thanks TriCenter for stopping by, and for giving us all such great information on health, training, performance and competition!
When we traveled down to Phoenix for the Arizona Rock 'n' Roll Marathon on last month, we had a lot of fun taping up so many runners and hearing their stories.
We're happy that we were able to make a positive difference in their race!
And it was fun to be on the morning news with Cory McCloskey and the My Fox Phoenix team during their coverage of the hot new trends they found at the Arizona Health and Fitness Expo. Michelle Thompson, KT Tape Marketing Manager, demonstrated how KT Tape works by taping up Cory's shin. She explained how KT Tape relieves pain and offers support without drugs and without restricting mobility.

Las Vegas, NVNew at the Rock n Roll Las Vegas Marathon this year is a booth at the Performance Expo offering kinesiology therapeutic tape (KT Tape) demonstrations and samples. All race participants will want to dig through their goodie bags for their own free sample of KT Tape. KT Tape is the first-ever consumer brand of kinesiology tape. For years, elite marathon runners have used kinesiology therapeutic tape for injury treatment, pain relief and performance, and now all runners can have access to that same level of support.
In addition to free samples, the KT Tape Team will be at the KT Tape booth at the Performance Expo to offer free taping demonstrations and advice to athletes. Members of the KT Tape Team will also be available for media interviews via appointment at the Expo.
The Las Vegas Performance Expo runs Friday, December 4th from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, December 5th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Mandalay Bays Bayside Hall C. Because KT Tape can be worn for up to five days per application, Las Vegas Marathon runners who stop by the KT Tape Booth can get taped up for race day during the expo!
KT Tape is used by athletes to treat common sports injuries such as runners knee, shin splints, IT Band pain, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and quad or hamstring strain. It is the only solution that will provide pain relief and support before, during, and after the racewithout restricting motion. At the Expo, the KT Tape team will be available to answer questions, demo product taping methods, and introduce Las Vegas to this revolution in pain relief and performance enhancement.
