It's especially exciting to have world class athletes like Stuczynski and Richards representing the NUTRILITE brand at their sports' most prestigious events.

Nutrilite is a proud sponsor of the 2008 Tyson Invitational, which will be held at the Randal Tyson Track Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on Feb. 15, 2008.

The Tyson Invitational is an elite track-and-field competition that brings together the world's best sprinters, throwers, and pole vaulters. Team NUTRILITE® athletes and American record holders, Jenn Stuczynski and Sanya Richards, will compete at this year's event.

"NUTRILITE is proud to sponsor the 2008 Tyson Invitational," says Brian Geers, Manager - Health Marketing for Quixtar. "It's especially exciting to have world class athletes like Stuczynski and Richards representing the NUTRILITE brand at their sports' most prestigious events."

NUTRILITE is the world's leading brand of vitamin, mineral and dietary supplements, based on 2006 sales. NUTRILITE is the only global vitamin and mineral brand to grow, harvest, and process plants on their own certified organic farms.* NUTRILITE is the exclusive vitamin, mineral, and supplement brand of the Tyson Invitational.

Team NUTRILITE athlete Jenn Stuczynski broke the American record in pole vault with a height of 15 feet, 10.5 inches on May 20, 2007, at the adidas Track Classic in Carson, California. Just two weeks later she cleared 16 feet at the Reebok Grand Prix in New York City, making her the first American woman to clear that height, breaking her own record. Stuczynski is the number-two all-time world female pole-vaulter, and was the 2006 and 2007 United States Outdoor National Champion.

Understanding the importance of good nutrition, Stuczynski says, "As an athlete striving for the top of my game, I appreciate that Nutrilite provides the highest quality supplementation. As a busy woman with an incredibly hectic schedule, I appreciate that NUTRILITE products are a quick and convenient source of essential nutrients. NUTRILITE Concentrated Fruits and Vegetables, my favorite, gives me in two tablets the key phytonutrients and antioxidants found in more than 10 servings of fruits and vegetables."

Team NUTRILITE athlete Sanya Richards set her own American record on September 16, 2006, at the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Cup in Athletics in Athens, Greece, by completing the 400m dash in 48.70 seconds. In 2004, she used her 400m ability to help the United States take first place in the 4x400m relay, running third leg. She also is a two-time World Championships gold medalist in the 4x400. Richards is a three-time national champion in the 400m event and is currently ranked #1 in the race amongst competitors from around the world.

"I am thrilled to represent Nutrilite and share their message about the importance of proper nutrition in achieving optimal health," says Richards. "One NUTRILITE Daily Multivitamin / Multimineral tablet provides 24 essential vitamins and minerals. That's a simple way to help balance out your diet, whether you're an elite athlete who's constantly training, traveling and competing or a busy mom trying to feed her family properly on the go."
