Nick Symmonds

Track Star


Nick is not only a stupid-fast track runner and smart entrepreneur, he’s an advocate for his sport. His passion to create a thriving and exciting arena for he and his fellow athletes to compete in (by tackling issues such as sponsorship rules, branding restrictions, and declining participation) is as admirable as his World Championships medal. We also love knowing we can easily find him out fishing, hiking, or paddling when he’s not on the track.
