LAKE MARY, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jeunesse sponsored South Korean speed skater Kim Min-seok surprised the speed skating world, winning the bronze medal in the Men’s 1500m event in his Olympic debut in PyeongChang. Min-seok also made Olympic history as the first Asian athlete ever to win a medal in this event, and went on to earn silver in the Men’s Team Pursuit.
Jeunesse Global™ entered into the sponsorship of Min-seok and up-and-coming female South Korean speedskater Kim Min-sun as part of their strategy to further build global brand awareness.
Jeunesse Chief Visionary Officer, Scott Lewis said, “We were thrilled to support Kim Min-sun and Kim Min-seok as they pursued their Olympic dreams in their home country of South Korea. With their energy, dedication and enthusiasm, these talented athletes perfectly capture the Generation Young® spirit, and we are honored to have them in the Jeunesse Family. We are so proud of Kim Min-seok and congratulate him for earning silver and bronze medals and for taking his place in Olympic history as the first Asian athlete to medal in the Men’s 1500m event.”
“I am so happy to be part of the Jeunesse Family,” Min-seok said. “I’ve been using Jeunesse products for some time now, with great results. I love all the products, but I have to say my favorite is Reserve. It tastes great and provides the antioxidant power that’s so important in my training. I always keep Reserve and ZEN Fit® in my bag to use before and after training. To compete on the Olympic stage, I had to go into the games feeling my best, and with these products, I was able to do just that.”
