Zamst, a leader in high-performance
sports protective equipment, announced a continuation of its worldwide
endorsement deal with professional basketball star Stephen Curry.

Widely considered to be one of today’s best young basketball players, Curry has
battled persistent ankle injuries over past seasons. Curry wore the Zamst A2-DX
ankle brace during the 2012-13 season, and will wear the brace for the upcoming

Since his ankle ligament surgery in 2011, Stephen has been wearing the Zamst
A2-DX to support his ability to stay on the court. Setting a single season NBA
record with 272 three pointers, Stephen clearly separated himself as one of the
elite shooters in NBA history. In addition to this achievement, he led the
Golden State Warriors to the second round of the NBA playoffs, scoring 44
points in Game 1 against the San Antonio Spurs. In the 2012- 13 season Curry
averaged 22.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1.6 steals, and he shot
45.3% from 3 point range during the regular season.

“Stephen is a amazing young talent who has shown what he can do when healthy,
and is coming off an incredible 2012-13 season,” said Bryan Smeltzer, general
manager of Zamst US. “Our product line was created to help players like Stephen

to play without limitations. We look forward to continuing our support of
Stephen, providing the product’s he needs to perform at an elite level, and watching
him develop as one of the NBA’s premier point guards. Our Precision Engineered
Support products protect and reinforce the elite athletes of the world, and we are
proud to continue our partnership with Stephen.”

medial stability of the ankle.

ankle design.

“I’ve used a lot of different braces to
help reinforce my right ankle, but since my surgery I have only been wearing
the Zamst A2-DX which has provided the support I need to keep me on the court”
said Curry. “The Zamst A2-DX is the only product that has given me the full
confidence to play without the fear of re-injuring my ankle.”

deal, Curry will be used internationally for in-store, print and online
marketing activities for Zamst.
