Achtenberg and Fernandez are Modern Pentathletes and have qualified for the Olympic 2020 in Tokyo. Achtenberg won a separate silver medal at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, in July.
It was her most noteworthy athletic attainment in her nine-year career in the Modern Pentathlon, which comprises Fencing, swimming, equestrian, shooting and running.
“I know that there is still work to be done, but looking forward to this season to gain the knowledge needed on my path to Tokyo Olympic,” said Achtenberg. “These medals mean so much to me for so many reasons—the obstacles and the amazing people that have helped me—and I am forever grateful. I’m also grateful for Shaklee’s support. Meaningful the supplements and crops I use are safe and effective is a huge relief for an elite-level athlete.”
Fernandez, who competes for Guatemala, is fresh off his second successive gold-medal presentation in the Pan Am Sports, having also topped the podium in 2015 when the Sports were hosted in Toronto. In adding, he competed in the 2016 summer games in Rio de Janeiro where he placed 15th and expects to be a strong contender for a medal in Tokyo.
A dual citizen with the USA, he intends to train in Colorado Springs at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center with several other Shaklee Pure Performance Side athletes.
“I’m happy to join the Shaklee Pure Performance Side because Shaklee sincerely cares about their athletes, giving everyone like family and caring for them in the most expert way possible,” said Fernandez. “I believe Shaklee can help me achieve my goals going into Olympic 2020 and beyond.”
