SALT LAKE CITY, UT, USA - USANA, the Official Health Supplement Supplier to the WTA, is holding its annual convention this week and on Thursday they had a very special guest speaker - WTA founder and legend Billie Jean King.

From Wednesday through Sunday of this week, USANA brought more than 8,000 USANA distributors and associates from all over the world to Salt Lake City for the annual convention, which was themed "Living The Dream".

King began her day by doing media interviews, followed by meeting some key leaders from USANA. Then, as the convention's keynote speaker, she shared her story of making her dream come true, and encouraged the guests to do the same. Finally, never far from her Wilson racquets, King also hit autographed tennis balls to her enthusiastic fans after the speech and presentation.

The WTA and USANA have been partners since 2006 and over 160 players on the WTA use USANA products. Additionally, USANA has six ambassadors who personally endorse its products, including Kim Clijsters and Sam Stosur.

The relationship between the WTA and USANA fulfilled a long time player request for nutritional supplements as well as the WTA's desire to identify a product guaranteed to be free of banned substances. Further, because USANA feels so strongly about the quality and purity of their products, they offer each player the opportunity to enter into an Athlete Guarantee contract should the player test positive for a prohibited substance due to USANA products. The WTA researched a number of companies, and USANA came out on top.
