HOKA ONE ONE, a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE: DECK), continues to strengthen its elite athlete team with the addition of Olympian Cam Levins and ultrarunners Ellie Greenwood, Andrea Huser and Kris Brown. In addition, the HOKA ONE ONE New Jersey New York Track Club has added Megan Mansy, Danielle Aragon, and Rob Napolitano to the track-focused team.

“With these new athletes, our ultra- and trail-running roster continues to become one of the strongest in the world, and the addition of Cam and of new NJ*NY athletes continues to solidify our presence on the road and track,” said Mike McManus, Senior Sports Marketing Manager for HOKA ONE ONE.

“Not only are they great athletes, but they are great ambassadors for the sport, and we are thrilled to support their training and racing, as well as to have them representing our brand.”

A 2012 Olympian in the 10,000m and 5,000 meters on the track, Cam Levins is also an NCAA champion at both distances. Levins hails from British Columbia and currently resides in Portland, Oregon. He’ll run the Houston Half Marathon in January as his first race representing HOKA.

A well-know and decorated runner on the ultrarunning circuit, Ellie Greenwood is the 2011 and 2012 Western States 100-mile champion and current course record holder. She also holds the course record at the JFK 50 Mile, won the 90K Comrades Marathon in South Africa and is a five-time winner of the competitive Chuckanut 50K. Greenwood currently resides in North Vancouver.

Andrea Huser, based in Switzerland, is the 2015 Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc champion and 2016 and 2017 UTMB runner-up. Formerly a mountain biker and a triathlete, Huser is also the 2016 and 2017 champion of Grand Raid La Reunion, a challenging 167K race on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

A resident of Santa Barbara, California, Kris Brown had a breakout year in 2017, capped off by a fourth-place finish at the highly-competitive North Face 50 Mile Championships; he also won the San Diego 100 and finished second at the Tamalpa Headlands 50K in Muir Beach, California.

Rounding out the HOKA ONE ONE NJ*NY Track Club, Megan Mansy and Danielle Aragon join the team with impressive personal bests in the 1,500m at 4:08 and 4:12 respectively. Mansy is the school record holder at North Carolina State in the 1,500m and indoor mile. Aragon, a Billings, Montana, native and recent graduate of Notre Dame, is a four-time NCAA All-American.
