NORCROSS, GA (October 24, 2021) — Mizuno, the global specialty sporting goods company, has signed volleyball player Kathryn Plummer as the newest addition to the Mizuno roster of athletes in the United States. Plummer will play and train exclusively in Mizuno footwear and training apparel.
“Kathryn is a strong addition to our extraordinary list of female athletes,” said Clint Sammons, director of team sports at Mizuno USA. “Kathryn exemplifies what Mizuno looks for in an athlete to represent our brand both on and off the court, and we are extremely bullish on the impact we think Kathryn will have on the court and for the Mizuno brand in the coming years.”
A decorated international athlete winning gold at the Pan American Cup—bronze twice and gold once at the FIVB Beach Women’s World Championship — Plummer has been a notable player on the U.S. Women’s National Team since 2019. A four-time NCAA All-American, Plummer was selected as the James E. Sullivan Award recipient as best amateur in the U.S in 2019. Plummer is also a three-time NCAA champion at Stanford University, two-time AVCA National Player of the Year, two-time ESPNW National Player of the Year and is the only player in history to win FIVB Junior World Championship medals in both beach and indoor (indoor – silver at 2015 FIVB Girls’ U18 World Championship; beach – gold at 2014 FIVB Beach Girls’ U17 World Championship).
“Mizuno has long been an industry leader and I’m excited to join the family,” said Plummer. “They continually push the boundaries and are passionate about evolving the game. It’s an honor to start my journey with them and look forward to what the future holds.”
Plummer joins a roster of female athletes, including volleyball athletes Sherridan Atkinson, Tiffany Clark and Kendall White, as well as former MMA superstar Ronda Rousey, volleyball Olympian April Ross and softball Olympian Jennie Finch who represent Mizuno with powerful, inspiring messages of courage, determination, and grit.
