Three-time Olympic medalist J.R. Celski— whose Olympic career has often been hampered by injuries—is back in top form as he sets his sights on the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Celski dominated at the U.S. Speedskating Short Track World Cup Qualifier on Sunday, October 2. During the qualifier, he swept all four events over two days, winning both the 500m and the 1000m races. In fact, Celski won all 15 of his race heats. It was later announced that Celski would headline the 2016 Short Track Fall World Cup men’s team.
“Any coach would be pumped to have J.R. on their team. Since he’s gotten older, he has grown more into the leadership role in terms of him being a vocal leader and not only a leader during training,” Men’s Short Track Head Coach Anthony Barthell said of Celski on TeamUSA.org.
Celski regularly uses the AIM products and has been sponsored by AIM for thirteen years, and we are proud of all he’s accomplished and for what, it seems, he is poised to accomplish. J.R. has used most of the AIM products during his storied career, but BarleyLife, AIMega, Peak Endurance and RediBeets are some of his favorites. Also, Red Rush—another preference of his—was specifically developed for J.R.
