US athletes in BMX win medals with help of eSoles Footbeds
Aug '08
eSoles Custom Footbeds, the world's leading authority in the science and development of semi-custom and custom footbeds, announced that its ePro customized footbeds, the Official Footbeds of USA Cycling, were worn during the medal-winning Olympic performances of Jill Kintner, Mike Day, and Donny Robinson during the first-ever Olympic BMX races, and Kristin Armstrong and Levi Leipheimer in the women's and men's individual time trial road cycling events.

In BMX, Mike Day took silver and Donny Robinson took bronze in the men's race on August 22. Also on August 22, Jill Kintner won bronze in the women's final.

In road cycling, Armstrong earned a gold medal for her first-place finish in the women's race on August 13, finishing nearly 30 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher. In the men's individual time trial, also on August 13, Leipheimer won the bronze medal.

"The Olympic medals earned by Team USA road and BMX cyclists further validate the fact that eSoles custom footbeds are a true breakthrough in the science of sports technology," said Glen Hinshaw, co-founder and CEO of eSoles.

"By correctly imaging and aligning the feet and joints, our footbeds provide significant alignment, power and support, helping prevent injury and fatigue, which were clearly seen in the performances of these athletes."
