IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zamst, the global athletic brace and support brand, has partnered with Atlanta Hawks’ point guard and former Norman North High School and OU star, Trae Young (photo link here), as its latest brand ambassador.
“I am excited to partner with Zamst as their braces have been an invaluable addition to my conditioning and game day routine. As a global brand ambassador for Zamst, I hope to inform the importance of proper conditioning,” said Young. “Zamst’s braces are highly functional and comfortable, allowing me to focus on my game when I am on the court.”
“With Trae’s drive and efforts both on the court and off, as well as his passion in taking care of his body, we are proud to have Trae join our team and represent Zamst,” said Hajime Takada, President of Sigmax America dba Zamst, “Trae’s relationship and high engagement with his community – especially his younger fans, and his integrity both on the court and off– ultimately made it a simple decision as an athlete who best represents Zamst.”
At 21, Young has had a successful basketball career. He was the first and only player to ever lead the NCAA in both points and assists in a single season with the Oklahoma Sooners. In just his second year as a professional, he ranked in the top 3 in points and assists and became a fan favorite with his innovative and electrifying playstyle on the court. He was also unanimously selected to the 2019 All-Rookie First Team and voted a starter in the 2020 All Star Game.
Trae Young can now be seen sporting the popular A2-DX from Zamst to help prevent further cases.
Zamst’s former ambassadors include Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry, Anaheim Ducks’ Ryan Getzlaf, and Denver Broncos’ Von Miller.
