PokerStars Sponsors Female Snowboarding Star, Zoe Gillings
UK-based PokerStars, the world’s largest online poker room, offered their sponsorship to Zoe Gillings last week. Gillings, Britain’s premier female snowboarding star, happily accepted the offer and will be sporting PokerStars branded gear throughout the upcoming season.
The news came just after Zoe Gillings returned to the UK after a fourth place finish in Argentina’s opening round of the FIS Snowboardcross World Cup. As Gillings looks to expand on her already impressive accomplishments in recent years, the Internet gaming company PokerStars will be backing her every step of the way.
“We are absolutely delighted to be supporting Zoe as she heads into another year on the World Cup circuit and begins to look ahead to the Winter Olympics in 2010,” expressed Tom Wyse, Marketing Director of PokerStars Download. “We are committed to supporting local sport and we hope our backing will help drive her towards her goals.”
Zoe was honored with the British Olympic Association’s Athlete of the Year Award in for her exceptional triumphs in the 2007/08 season, which included a 2nd place finish in the Japan FIS World Cup Snowboardcross finals, a 4th place finish in the Korean FIS World Cup Snowboardcross finals, and a 6th place finish in snowboardcross at Colorado, USA’s prestigious X-Games.
