RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., Sep. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Long jump World Record holder, Mike Powell, has leaped into a sponsorship deal with the nationwide nutrition company NatraGood™, manufacturer and distributor of natural health products nationwide including NatraLean and Natraburst.
Powell, who turns 50 in November, broke Bob Beamon's long standing record by out-leaping Carl Lewis with a jump of 29' 4 ½" in 1991. After 22 years, this record still stands as one of the longest held and most revered records in any sport.
"NatraGood™ will become Mike Powell's official nutrition partner. He is extremely popular and with him we look forward to extending our name brand recognition, not only in Track and Field but other sports," states Jim Christie, President of NatraGood™.
"Mike embodies the NatraGood philosophy where good nutrition is essential for a healthy, active life, not only for professional athletes but the man and woman on the street too. Through Mike, not only will our products be exposed to current athletes, but because of his age, we will see recognition from spectators too."
Powell comments, "I still coach athletes of all abilities from around the world. Some of these athletes are future Olympians and others looking to break my World Record. It is important to me and progress of the athlete that I actually demonstrate techniques that I am coaching."
"To do this at my age, I have to stay physically healthy and pay particular attention to my personal nutrition program and the NatraGood™ line of products helps with that. This sponsorship is a natural blend."
Christie concludes, "Mike is arguably one of the most iconic athletes ever in Track and Field. We are very fortunate that he was available for sponsorship in our product category. The fact that he is already highly visible can only draw more attention to NatraGood and our products. We have seen Mike's plan for the next two years and it is extremely exciting. The potential for both Mike and NatraGood™ is huge."
