Olympic medalist O'Brien on DragonTech's Advisory Board
Aug '12
Dan O’Brien, three-time world champion and 1996 Olympic gold medalist announced that he has joined the Advisory Board of leading protective work wear clothing brand DragonTech International. This announcement comes as O’Brien has arrived in London to cover track and field at the 2012 Summer Olympics for Yahoo! Sports.

DragonTech’s Advisory Board helps DragonTech understand the needs of workers in the field in terms of comfort, safety and design. Like Olympic competitors, DragonTech understands that increased protection for workers improves performance.

“I am thrilled to partner with a company focused on safety, design and comfort – all wrapped in ‘cool’. DragonTech is like a great athlete – always pushing to improve, never satisfied with its achievements. The company’s attitude towards business is in tune with how I view the dedication necessary to become the best in the world,” according to O’Brien, whose world record in the decathlon stood for nearly twenty years.

DragonTech co-founder, Bradley Yonover: “Dan is one of the finest athletes the world has ever known and a great human being. Dan is an inspiration to us at DragonTech, as well as to the world. We’ve modelled our business approach on the same tenets that made Dan an elite athlete – dedication, focus and a desire to be the best. We are honored to have Dan as a valued member of the DragonTech Advisory Board.”

Dan O’Brien won the gold medal for the decathlon in the Atlanta 1996 Summer Olympic Games and won gold medals at the 1991, 1993 and 1995 World Championships in Athletics.

DragonTech International is an innovative developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium protective clothing. DragonTech’s product line includes flame resistant (FR) and non-FR coveralls, outerwear, high-visibility clothing and corporate image wear.
