Go for Gold Team Shelley Rudman & Kristan Bromley, Bobskeleton Olympic Athletes!

1766-shelleyrudman-thumb-300x190-1765.jpgBack in 2005, we started a sponsorship programme with King of Shaves with Kristan Bromley. Along with Herbie, other KoS members and Kristan’s brother Richard,iIn 2006, I was in Turin for the Winter Olympics, where we saw Kristan narrowly miss a podium place, but watched with our hearts in our mouths as his partner, Shelley, slid to a fantastic Silver medal. Although our sponsorship had been with Kristan, he had called me just before the Olympics started in January, to ask if I’d consider extending King of Shaves’ sponsorship to Shelley, which I did.

Following her great position, it was my pleasure to extend a 4 year title sponsorship contract with her, which gave her the necessary funding to keep pace with being an Olympian once again in 2010.

Well, in a few minutes she and Kristan will ‘slide again’, and I’m up – fuelled by a few cups of coffee to watch.

Will they win? Well, in my mind they already have – they’ve worked hard to be ‘the best they can be’, and are genuine Gold Medal contenders (despite having little or no training facilities in the UK). Now with 2 year old baby Ella, and their proud parents there to watch them, we wish them all the best – “slide fast & safe Kristan and Shelley – Go for Gold!”

Best wishes, from everyone at King of Shaves.
