Riobel becomes the main sponsor of freestyle skier Mikaël Kingsbury

ST-JÉRÔME, QC, Jan. 18, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Québec-based designer and distributor of plumbing fixtures Riobel is proud to announce that it has become the main corporate sponsor of Mikaël Kingsbury, a young and extremely gifted mogul skier. Through a personal sponsorship, the St-Jérôme company will support the athlete from Deux-Montagnes in his quest to win the FIS Freestyle skiing World Cup: he currently leads the worldwide standings.

RIOBEL's sponsorship agreement covers a three-year period. "We wanted to show our support for a promising young athlete and contribute to the accomplishment of his dreams. Thanks to his talent, persistence and outgoing personality, Mikaël was a natural choice. His determination and personal discipline are values that strongly reflect RIOBEL's corporate culture" noted Mario Bélisle, President of RIOBEL, as he handed over the first sponsorship cheque.
