Electronics and appliance leader Samsung is sponsoring a select group of Professional Triathletes ranging from Olympians to Ironman champions. Professional triathletes Andrew Johns, Matt Reed, Dede Griesbauer and Petr Vabrousek will all be Samsung athletes through the 2009 season. These athletes will use Samsung products in training and racing to review strategy and technique in swimming, cycling and running and of course to watch their races. Samsung will be providing high end equipment including top of the line digital video equipment, LCD televisions, Ultra Mobile PC’s and digital cameras. Samsung chose these athletes as they are leaders in the sport and have too many wins between them to count.
Team manager Lee Zohlman says, “This is a great partnership as the training for our athletes gets more high tech each year. These devices will help the athletes on many levels. It will help them stay in touch faster with coaches and family and also for quicker and more accurate video analysis. In addition, what a better way to recover from hard workouts then watching a crystal clear high res LCD TV?”
