Attending the 2012 London Olympic Games in London is the fourth notch on US triathlete Hunter Kemper’s race belt, as he gets set to compete at his fourth Olympic Games this August. 36-year-old Kemper has placed 17th, 9th, and 7th in his first three Olympics and is hoping to take his shot at Gold to be the world’s best triathlete while wearing a Rudy Project helmet and sunglasses in a new sponsorship deal.
”I’m excited to have the support of Rudy Project as I go for a medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games,” said Kemper. “Rudy Project’s helmet and eyewear line is the best in the business and truly allows me to be at the top of my game on race day.
“My favourite Rudy sunglasses would have to be the Noyz; although I must admit, it’s hard to choose just one with more than 30 glasses to choose from,” he added.
Whether Kemper podiums or not, Rudy Project is ‘honored to be his official helmet and eyewear sponsor through 2016.’
Commenting on the new sponsor deal, Chris Lupo, Director of Sports Marketing at Rudy Project North America, said “I’m thrilled about our new long term partnership with Hunter. He’s an incredible ambassador to the sport of triathlon and to the United States – I know how proud he is to represent both, and Rudy Project is equally as proud to partner with him as he prepares to compete in his fourth Olympics.”
