NUSKIN ENTERPRISES BECOMES OFFICIAL OLYMPIC SPONSOR.
"The purpose of the U.S. Olympic Spirit Award is to recognize those athletes whose extraordinary contributions to the spirit of the Olympic Games inspire us all," said Nu Skin chief executive Steven J. Lund. "Whether they win Olympic gold or not, the U.S. Olympic Spirit Award nominees win our admiration and respect."
Twelve candidates for the award will be nominated at the end of the 2000, 2002 and 2004 Olympic and Paralympic Games by a panel of U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Alumni. The nominees--three male and three female Olympians and three male and three female Paralympians--will be prominently featured on displays at the U.S. Olympic Training Centers and on a website linked to both www.usolympicteam.com and www.nuskinenterprises.com. The public will be invited to vote for a nominee in each category via the two websites. The athlete in each category who receives the most votes will be selected as a recipient of the U.S. Olympic Spirit Award. Nu Skin Enterprises will host an awards banquet, and the company will make a donation to U.S. Olympic-related charities in each award recipient's name. Nu Skin Enterprises and its subsidiary Pharmanex are official sponsors of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City.
