USANA Congratulates Becca Ward on Bronze Medal Finish at Beijing Olympics

SALT LAKE CITY, Aug 14, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- USANA Health Sciences, Inc. would like to congratulate USANA-sponsored Olympian Becca Ward for her bronze medal finish in fencing at the Beijing Olympic Games. Ward defeated Russia's Sofiya Velikaya, 15-14, to take home the bronze.

The United States claimed all three medals in women's individual sabre on Saturday as Mariel Zagunis took home the gold medal, Sada Jacobson won the silver, and Ward earned bronze.

Ward, an 18-year-old sabre fencer from Oregon, was a favorite entering the Games. She came back from 6-1 to force a tie in her bronze-medal performance. Ward's victory came after a dramatic match point, which was decided only after officials reviewed it on video.

Former President George H.W. Bush attended the medal ceremony and congratulated the medalists afterward.

Ward is one of many Olympic and professional athletes who trust USANA's high-quality nutritional products. USANA applauds Ward and all of the athletes at the 2008 Summer Games for their hard work and dedication to sport.
