HARRISBURG, Pa. (August 3, 2016) – KT Tape, the Official Kinesiology Tape Licensee of the U.S. Olympic Team and U.S. Olympic Committee, has recently chosen Harrisburg-based TFM Advertising (TFM) to execute its digital marketing plans pursuant to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
TFM was selected by KT Tape with a specific focus of communicating KT Tape’s Olympic involvement. This includes TFM designing KT Tape’s Olympic Hub http://www.kttape.com/olympics/ on the KT Tape website, creating display ads promoting athletes and promotions and creating videos celebrating KT Tapes Olympic involvement.
“What an exciting time to be working with KT Tape, as they provide our Team USA Olympic athletes with the support they need to perform at their peak in this summer’s games,” said Tom Hollerbach, TFM Advertising president. “Creatively, TFM will develop multi-media tactics through which KT Tape can better share information about their sponsorship, their product and engage consumers.”
KT Tape is an elastic sports and fitness tape designed for muscle, ligament and tendon pain relief and support. It’s lightweight, comfortable to wear and can be used for hundreds of common injuries. KT Tape provides 24-hour relief per application for days at a time through sweat, strain and humidity, and can even be worn in water, thanks to a specially designed adhesive.
Fifteen U.S. Olympic athletes are directly sponsored by KT Tape. They include Kerri Walsh Jennings (Women’s Beach Volleyball), Meb Keflezighi (Men’s Marathon), James Harden (Men’s Basketball), Kerri Strug (Women’s Gymnastics), Tony Azevedo (Men’s Water Polo), Boris Berian (Men’s 800m Running), Brenda Martinez (Middle Distance Running), Haley Anderson (Women’s Swimming), Adeline Gray (Women’s Wrestling), Sara Hammer (Cycling Track), Molly Huddle (Track 5000 M), Melissa Stockwell (Women’s Paratriathlete), Tucker Dupree (Para Swimming), Oksana Masters (Women’s Para Rowing), and Joe Berenyi (Paralympic Cycling).
Additionally, KT Tape is a proud sponsor of seven U.S. Olympic sports including USA Track & Field, USA Soccer, USA Triathlon, USA Cycling, USA Rugby, USA Gymnastics and USA Wrestling.
The KT Tape Olympic Hub website will feature profiles of each of the 15 athlete partners, highlighting their vitals/stats, career achievements, unique personalities and goals. Visitors to these pages will also be able to watch videos demonstrating the way that athletes utilize KT Tape’s product specifically for their needs.
