Jared Ward to appear on Shark Tank

The American marathoner is pitching a recovery ball that heats up and vibrates

American marathoner¬†Jared Ward will appear in tonight’s episode of Shark Tank, the popular business show featuring Canadian venture capitalist Kevin O’Leary.¬†Ward, along with his business partners at MyoStorm, is pitching a four-inch textured rubber recovery ball called The Meteor. Ward finished as second American male (and eighth overall) at this year’s Boston Marathon with a personal best time of 2:09:25.


One of Ward’s partners is former 800m runner Shaquille Walker,¬†whose personal best at the distance is 1:44.99.

Ward, 31, finished sixth in the 2016 Olympic marathon in Rio. He was the first American male to finish the 2018 New York City Marathon, in 2:12:24.

The Meteor delivers both heat and vibration to relieve post-workout pain and tightness, stimulate blood flow, increase flexibility, and reduce recovery time.

Tune in tonight to find out if Ward and his partners get a deal from the Sharks. The episode airs on CTV at 9:00 p.m. ET.
