INDIANAPOLIS (February 1, 2024) – USA Gymnastics (USAG) today announced that Samsonite, the global leader in innovative luggage solutions, has joined USA Gymnastics as the official luggage partner. Samsonite will support the USA Gymnastics National Team as they travel to training camps and domestic and international competitions, including the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
“We are excited to welcome Samsonite as an official partner and appreciate their strong commitment to supporting the National Team’s journey,” said Lauryn Turner, Chief Operating Officer of USA Gymnastics. “Travel can be stressful, and Samsonite will help USA Gymnastics athletes arrive with confidence. As a best-in-class brand, they are a great fit with not just the National Team but our larger partnership family as well.”
USA Gymnastics fields National Teams at as many as 20 international events each year, including World Championships, The World Games, Pan American Championships, World Cup events, Gymnastics Team Trials, and the Olympic Games. The USA Gymnastics women’s team has won gold or silver in the Olympic Team event and gold in the All-Around at every Games since 2004.
As part of the partnership, U.S. National Teams will use the incredibly lightweight and extremely durable Proxis luggage, whose innovative design is made from Roxkin™, an exclusive multi-layered material developed that bounces back into shape, offering remarkable strength, resilience and lightness.
“We are thrilled to announce the partnership between Samsonite and USA Gymnastics, two iconic brands, united by a shared dedication to the pursuit of excellence. Together, we celebrate the power sport and travel have to bring people together for a common purpose.” said Nicole Adriance, Senior Director of Brand Marketing at Samsonite.
