Body Bar Systems Inc., an official sponsor of USA Wrestling and a premier sponsor of the USA Womens Wrestling program, announced today that 2008 US Olympic wrestler Marcie Van Dusen has signed a contract to represent Body Bar Inc. in various marketing endeavors, including appearances with the company at several upcoming trade shows.


I am delighted that Ms. Van Dusen will be representing Body Bar, commented Arno Niemand, owner and chairman of Body Bar Systems. She has all of the attributes that the Body Bar community embraces. She is a hard worker, team player, fierce competitor and strong leader. She is a true champion.


Last month, Ms. Van Dusen recorded one of the biggest upsets in international womens wrestling history when she upset Japans Saori Yoshida at the 2008 World Cup. Yoshida, an Olympic and World champion, had never lost an international match in ten years of competition. This win qualified Van Dusen as one of only four women to represent the USA in the Beijing Olympics. A recent Sports Illustrated article stated that she has a good chance to receive a medal in Beijing.


Marcie personifies the qualities of a great company like Body Bar, said Terry Steiner, national team coach for the USA Wrestling Womens Wrestling program. They are clearly a winning combination.


 I have been a Body Bar devotee for some time, and recently ordered my own personal set of Body Bars, so I already feel like part of the company, commented Ms. Van Dusen. I look forward to helping Body Bar in its quest to bring womens wrestling to the forefront.
