Zensah announces partnership with Olympian Kara Goucher
Aug '14
Zensah, the athletic compression company, is excited to announce its partnership with Kara Goucher, elite American long-distance runner and two-time Olympian. The American running icon has been dealing with multiple injuries and is ready to start running again, with the help of Zensah.

Zensah is driven to develop compression gear for all athletes with a focus on comfort and technology. Goucher joins Zensah in a multi-year partnership in which she will wear Zensah Compression Socks, Compression Leg Sleeves, and Compression Tights for her running and recovery. Together, Goucher and Zensah hope to educate all athletes on how they can benefit from compression. The addition of Kara to Team Zensah will strengthen brand awareness across all Zensah retailers.

"Zensah has been an important part of my recovery and comeback,” says Kara Goucher. “I believe they make an excellent product, but more importantly, I believe in the people at the company. After receiving a pair of the Zensah compression leg sleeves, I was impressed with the quality and technology, and I reached out to Zensah to learn more. I absolutely love the compression socks and calf sleeves. But surprisingly, my favorite Zensah product has become the compression tights.”

“When I go out for a second run,” says Goucher, “I typically wear some compression socks or sleeves. I sleep in the Zensah Compression Tights or shorts a few days a week when I feel a little tight or beat up. I wake up the next day with my legs feeling recovered and ready to go. I truly believe they have helped me return to difficult training and enabled me to recover from all the pounding I’m putting my body through."

“As an elite athlete, Kara has the opportunity to choose any compression company. The fact that Kara chose Zensah is a further affirmation of Zensah’s leadership in compression sportswear,” says Ze’ev Feig, Zensah CEO.

“We are thrilled and honored to have Kara as part of Team Zensah. We are very excited that Zensah compression is able to help in her running and recovery,” says Feig. “Our partnership with Kara attests to the unrivaled technology and design in each of our compression products. Together, we hope to educate athletes on the benefits of compression and to develop new products with the best technology that will help all athletes in their training and recovery.”

Zensah's mission is to create innovative products that wow and inspire all athletes to achieve their goals without limits. The Zensah Compression Leg Sleeves are currently the #1 selling compression leg sleeves in running specialty, and have been for 6 consecutive years according to Leisure Trends Group Data.

Zensah is the only compression brand to use seamless technology to incorporate 3D pin-point ribbing into each compression product. This 3D pin-point compression applies targeted support to each muscle group. This can be seen in items like the compression leg sleeves that feature chevron ribbing for shin support and the high compression tights that include horizontal ribbing for quad and hamstring support. Athletes have come to love the unique Zensah fabric which is incredibly comfortable while offering the best muscle support and recovery.
