Olympic Judo Medallist Ronda Rousey Joins Gaspari as Ambassador

February 3, 2012

Gaspari Nutrition, a globally distributed sport nutrition company, have signed Olympic Judo medalist and Strikeforce title contender “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey as a Team Gaspari ambassador.

The brand continues to diversify its global brand strategy to encompass some of the best functional athletes on the planet who utilize Gaspari products as part of their nutritional plans.

“Ronda represents an elite class of athletes that have had the rare opportunity to compete at the highest levels of competition on the world stage. Rarely is there such a blend of athletic mastery, functional strength, and beauty in one package. Ronda will be a true asset to Team Gaspari and an excellent representative for all hardcore female athletes around the world,” said Vice President of Brand Strategy and Product Development, Daniel Pierce.

Ronda is one of three sisters and her mother Ann also had a decorated Judo career. In August 2008, Rousey competed at the Olympic Games in Beijing. She lost her quarterfinal but won the Bronze medal match. With the victory, Rousey became the first American to win an Olympic medal in women’s judo since its inception as an Olympic sport in 1992.

In the cage, Rousey has won all four of her professional fights with the longest lasting only 49 seconds. Rousey will challenge Miesha “Takedown” Tate for her Strikeforce 135lb title in the main event on March 3, 2012 in Columbus, Ohio during the Arnold Sports Festival. She will make her first appearance for Gaspari Nutrition at the Arnold Expo on Sunday following the fight on Gaspari TV. This will be a live telecast and Ronda certainly isn’t shy in front of the camera.

Look for Ronda to appear on both Gaspari TV and Gaspari’s global advertising campaign representing a new breed of Team Gaspari athletes alongside UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar and fellow rising MMA star “All American” Brian Stann. She will be actively blogging at ronda.gasparinutrition.com and making appearances with Team Gaspari around the country. Gaspari Nutrition is known for hard-hitting and clinically validated products and Ronda will now be among the fitness elite that are members of Team Gaspari.
