Atkinson signs on with Polar

Atkinson signs on with Polar Polar Electro Australia names its newest Australian ambassador, pro athlete and Olympian Courtney Atkinson.

Atkinson is a long time user of Polar wearable technology over his 20 year athletic career, says Polar in mid-April.

The partnership comes on the eve of Atkinson’s most challenging adventure yet – the State 8 project, where he will run the highest peak in each of the nation’s states and territories in the space of just one week.

Atkinson’s State 8 project will see him tackle some of Australia’s most gruelling terrains including snow, desert and rainforest.

“As a professional triathlete for over 20 years, I am no stranger to putting my body through its paces and with the State 8 Project, I am challenging myself like never before,” says Atkinson.

For Polar, having a pro athlete like Atkinson as an ambassadors gives great credibility to the brand and insight in product development, says Australian Managing Director, Drew Oryszczyn.

Atkinson joins ultra-marathon runner Samantha Gash and Supercar driver Will Davison as ambassadors for the heart rate monitor and performance sports watch brand in Australia. 

International athletes who also use Polar products include triathlon world champion Javier Gomez and elite Ironman Terenzo Bozzone.
