SALT LAKE CITY, UT (Feb. 27, 2012) – US Speedskating is pleased to announce an innovative partnership with AdventureUp.net and Drift Cameras, which will provide state-of-the-art, point-of-view HD cameras to capture the fast-paced action of speedskating. Additionally, US Speedskating World Cup athletes will share behind the scenes footage from their training and travel.
AdventureUp, an official Drift dealer, will supply US Speedskating with HD170 Stealth and Drift HD cameras, along with other accessories. The HD170 Stealth and HD both feature an integrated LCD screen for instant play back, from many new angles, to assist the athletes in training. The Drift cameras also allow US Speedskating to showcase their sport to fans in new ways and show them how intense training can be from the athlete’s unique perspective.
“Partnering with AdventureUp and Drift Cameras is a new and exciting opportunity for US Speedskating. The cameras have been a perfect fit for our athletes and the entire organization.” said Tamara Castellano, US Speedskating marketing and sponsorship director. “The cameras are small and light making it easy to travel and use during training, which is especially convenient for speedskating as everything is based on speed and aerodynamics.”
“It is an honor for Drift to work with both AdventureUp and the US Speedskating team,” said John Rounds, Drift’s North American manager. “We look forward to capturing and sharing the teams’ point of views and successes throughout the year.”
