LOS ANGELES, CA - Three Olympic athletes are at the center of Wonderful Pistachios’ latest campaign. The supplier has announced its partnership with three French sports players as part of a new campaign: "And you, how do you crack?" This initiative aims to inspire French consumers to make healthy food choices as part of regular physical activity, and will be promoted by fencer Sara Balzer, basketball player Evan Fournier, and boxing champion Estelle Mossely.

"At Wonderful Pistachios, we firmly believe that nutrition and wellness are essential elements that help fuel fitness, and we're proud to have Evan, Sara, and Estelle play a role in promoting these values," Tom Hazelof, Vice President of Retail Sales EMEA at Wonderful Pistachios.

Rolling out in France digitally, in print publications, and in gyms and stores with eye-catching displays, the campaign features these star athletes:
