Zamst, a sports injury prevention and protective equipment company, renewed its partnership with 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials Champion and two-time Olympian Amy Cragg, as her performance bracing support provider.

Cragg, a California native, has excelled on both U.S. and international long-distance running stages, most recently with her win at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials and ninth-place finish in the Marathon at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Prior to that, Cragg finished just one spot off the podium and U.S. Olympic team at the 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials.

However, her innate competitive nature and determination fueled her quest for redemption, and led her to victory at the 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials. Beyond her athletic success, Cragg is recognized for being an inspiring teammate. She demonstrated a remarkable act of teamwork at the Olympic Trials when she encouraged her training partner, Shalane Flanagan, through a battle with dehydration mid-race.

“We are thrilled to continue supporting Amy by creating products that will allow her to remain healthy, train injury free, and confidently line up on race day to compete,” said Bryan Smeltzer, general manager, Zamst U.S. “Aligning with world class elite athletes like Amy who have dominated their sport allows us to demonstrate the superiority of our products for all runners.”

Cragg joins other athletes on the “Z-Team” that have recently renewed their partnerships with Zamst including NBA All-Star Isaiah Thomas, PGA Tour Member Scott Langley and Pro Hockey Star Ryan Getzlaf.

Zamst is a division of the Nippon Sigmax Co. Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan) with privately held, wholly owned subsidiary corporations Sigmax America (Irvine, CA), Sigmax Europe (Annecy, France) and Sigmax China (Shanghai, PRC).
