New Balance Signs World Bronze Medalist Trayvon Bromell


athletic leader New Balance announced today the signing of 100-meter
IAAF World Championship bronze medalist, Trayvon Bromell, to a
multi-year endorsement contract. Bromell, a junior at Baylor

meters, Bromell ran 9.84 seconds at the US Championships in Eugene,
becoming the first US teenager to qualify for the world championships
in the 100m and followed that up by running 9.92 to claim the 100m
bronze medal at the IAAF World Outdoor Championships in Beijing this
past summer.

“I’m thrilled to
join the New Balance family, a brand that I share many of the same
values and principles,” said Bromell. “I am especially excited to join
a brand that   supports me both on and off the track and shares my
vision of giving back to young   athletes from my home state of

New Balance”, says Tom Carleo, Vice President of Running at New
Balance.  “We build innovative product for the fastest athletes in the
world and we look forward to      working with Trayvon as he drives the
future of U.S. and global sprinting.  In addition to his performance on
the track, New Balance and Trayvon share a commitment to giving back
which make him a natural fit for our brand.”
