Evan Weinstock

Evan Weinstock grew up in the desert of Las Vegas, Nevada. He naturally excelled at most sports growing up, becoming the star of his high school football team. To keep in shape for football, Evan also went out for the track and field team in the spring. Slowly he started developing skills in every track and field event, which led him to participate in the decathlon, a grueling 2-day, 10-event discipline that is famously known for naming the “World’s Greatest Athlete”.

Evan took his decathlon skills to Brown University where he won 3 Ivy League Decathlon Championships and broke the school record in his Sophomore year. Following a successful collegiate career, Evan started training professionally in the decathlon with Stanford University’s program and made his first international team, representing Team USA. It was during his time as a decathlete where he learned about the sport of bobsledding. The fast passed, icy sled racing was foreign to a Las Vegas native, but he excelled in the sport due to his developed strength and sprinting skills. Evan made the 2015-16 USA Men’s National Team in bobsledding and competed all over the world in his rookie season, capped off with racing in the 2016 World Championships in Igls, Austria. Notable athletic career highlights are:

Evan Weinstock

 

Managing constant sore muscles is a challenge for Evan Weinstock. He just finished his rookie bobsled season and went straight into training for the decathlon to try to qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics.  He regularly uses his PowerPlay® 360˚ Knee Wrap, Hip Wrap, and Back Wrap to keep the swelling and muscle fatigue to a minimum. He states this gives him the crucial recovery needed to specifically attack the multiple sports and movements he does daily. Evan states “I wouldn’t be able to compete so well as an all around athlete without PowerPlay’s portable recovery devices. They go with me everywhere.”
