Rulon Gardner is Wisk’s “sweat ambassador.”
• US gold and bronze medal Greco-Roman wrestler and NBC television analyst Rulon Gardner knows all about sweaty laundry. At 300 pounds, he loses six to ten pounds of sweat during each workout and throughout his lifetime he has endured excessive loads of “tough to clean” laundry, making him a perfect pick as Wisk Deep Clean’s first “sweat ambassador.”

“We are pleased to appoint Rulon our first official Sweat Ambassador. His desire and drive for Top Performance on and off the mat make him a perfect fit for Wisk Deep Clean,” said Lora Van Velsor, director of marketing at Wisk. “We are also proud to be the brand of choice for many years for his mother, Virginia, who raised Rulon and his eight brothers and sisters on a farm and has done endless loads of laundry.”

Gardner’s victory in 2000 over the undefeated three-time gold medalist and nine-time World Champion, Alexander Karelin of Russia, is known around the world as “The Miracle on the Mat.”
Earlier this year, the 40 year old attempted a comeback to compete for the US in London this summer. Although Gardner missed making the squad, he continued to help his fellow teammates prepare for London by training with them in Colorado Springs throughout the spring and summer.
