Meet Team Chobani’s Athletes for 2016 Olympics

Greek yogurt brand, Chobani just announced its latest roster of Team USA athletes for the 2016 Olympic and Paralytic Games in Rio. Team Chobani’s roster includes soccer players Morgan Brian, Alex Morgan, and Luis Gil, para-cycling star Alison Jones, boxer Marlen Esparza, wrestler Jordan Burroughs, track and field’s Ashton Eaton and Allyson Felix, and paratriathlon athlete Melissa Stockwell.

 

Chobani is known for its delicious Greek yogurt using natural, non-GMO ingredients and never using artificial preservatives, sweeteners, or flavors.

 

 

Each athlete was handpicked for his or her passion for practicing goodness, on the field and off the field. The athletes are set to star in TV, digital, and in-store ads that share their personal stories.

 

The Chief Marketing and Brand Officer of Chobani, Peter McGuiness, explains, “There’s something really special for us about this partnership. We love what our Team Chobani athletes stand for both as competitors on the field and as people off the field. Like our athletes, we’ve always believed that making choices grounded in goodness and integrity pave the way to greatness. Their personal journeys of hard work, perseverance, and giving back are a testament to the power of a life filled with goodness, and we’re very proud to be part of Team USA’s training on their road to Rio.”

 

 

In addition, Chobani is releasing three limited edition Rio-inspired flavors: Guava, Watermelon, and “Flip” Mango Passion Power. These yummy flavors will be available in grocery stores nationwide later this month.
