PIERRE, SD – The South Dakota Beef Industry Council (SDBIC) and Sanford Health are pleased to announce that three Build Your Base Team USA Olympians are traveling through South Dakota. U.S. Pole Vaulter, Chris Nilsen, U.S. Hammer Thrower, Deanna Price, and U.S. Shot Put Thrower, Payton Otterdahl have been making their way through the state to launch the latest resource found within the Build Your Base program. While here, they are attending activities that include public meet and greets.
These Build Your Base athletes know the importance of having a high-quality protein like beef included in their training and as part of their healthful lifestyle. Team USA Olympian, Deanna Price states, “As a professional athlete you need the highest quality source of fuel. Beef is a nutrient dense protein. Not only does it provide high quality protein, but has numerous amounts of vitamins and minerals that are essential for not only performance but for everyday living.”
Price is excited to launch the new “BEEF Strong” children’s story. Olympians will be signing and distributing the books at locations throughout South Dakota.
“The Build Your Base Program prepped me so well and without them I wouldn’t be in such great shape. Eating well is such a big part of competing well, and they absolutely do their part” stated Team USA Olympian and Silver Medalist, Chris Nilsen.
Olympians will wrap up their experience on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at the Black Hills State University Joy Center where they will hold their final public meet and greet event at 4:30 p.m. MT. SDBIC Executive Director, Suzy Geppert is excited to bring them to South Dakota. “We are so proud of the work these athletes do on a day-to-day basis in supporting our product and the farmers and ranchers who raise it. They understand the nutritional value and importance of high-quality protein like beef as they work alongside us in making a difference for not only our youth athletes and their families, but athletes from across the world. We appreciate them and will continue to cheer for them as they build their base with BEEF.”
