I’ve received word that multiple world recorder holder and triple olympic gold medallist, Libby Trickett has joined champion cricketer Adam Gilchrist as a spokesperson for Amway Australia and the Nutrilite and reportedly also Artistry brands. Gilchrist has also been re-signed as a spokesperson for a futher two years, continuing his work promoting both Nutrilite and the Amway One by One and Freedom Wheels campaign for children.
Trickett and Gilchrist are two of the highest profile and respected sports people in Australia and this is great news for Amway Australia IBOs. In more Amway Australia sports news, champion rugby league and rugby union player, and Amway Founders Platinum, Mat Rogers has helped lead expansion team the Gold Coast Titans into the finals of the Australian NRL Championships for the first time, finishing third after the regular season.
