The name Wiley X has become synonymous with high performance eyewear and accessories for more than 20 years. During that time, it's also become synonymous with top-notch sponsored athletes. Wiley X has amassed a crew of incredible athletes from a wide range of extreme sports, from NASCAR superstars to Pro Bass Anglers, to represent its unique brand. And now the company is proud to announce that World Record-breaking Xtreme Shooting legend Patrick Flanigan has just been added to the diverse Wiley X team, to join the ranks of heavy hitters like Skeet Reese, Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards to name a few.
For decades, Wiley X's renowned glasses featuring High Velocity Protection (HVP) have been gracing the faces of heroes in the sporting arena, as well as the heroes who protect our freedom - being trusted by US Armed Forces all over the globe as well as for legions of American law enforcement professionals. So it's not surprising that one of the top dogs of the fast growing sport of Xtreme Shooting would turn to Wiley X's rugged, slick, dependable shooting glasses.
"As an Xtreme Sport Shooter and avid sportsman, my eyes are everything! Wiley X's products provide me with the safety, style and Xtreme protection that I need when setting new world records and performing my live Xtreme shows," says the 30-year-old Flanigan. "Wiley X's world class reliability and high performance quality gives me the ultimate in security - and that allows me the freedom to not worry about the safety of my eyes, so I can focus on shooting targets."
And shooting targets is what he does - fast and furious. He's broken six Xtreme Shooting World records, including shooting 12 shotgun rounds in 1.42 seconds and taking nine clay targets hand thrown, individually shot, from the hip and without assistance. But there's little that he does by half measures - he's also a black belt in karate and is in the Guinness Book of World Records for drumming feats.
"We are thrilled to welcome Patrick to the Wiley X team of sponsored athletes," says Myles Freeman Jr., President of Sales for Wiley X. "His incredible shooting prowess, his enthusiasm and unstoppable, competitive drive are a perfect fit for both the company he'll be keeping with our other amazing athletes, and for our brand itself. He's the guy to watch in his unique sport and we can't wait to see where his skill will take him next. We're honored to play a role in his success now and in the coming years."
