The Pho3nix Foundation is proud to announce its 2023 athlete ambassadors on the Pho3nix Team.
The Pho3nix Team are an elite squad from across multiple sports who embody the Pho3nix ideals of triumph through adversity, staying true to one’s dreams, and paying forward the gift of sport to the next generation.

Rounding out the team are Olympic champion skateboarder Keegan Palmer and parkour star Michael Khedoori, who represent urban and stylistic sports hugely popular especially with the youth.
“The Pho3nix Team has evolved over the years from multisport into new sports, in particular parkour and stylistic sports,” says Chris McCormack, Pho3nix Foundation board member and Mana Global executive chairman. “Pho3nix continues to do amazing things to enhance participation in sport and support athletes. The Pho3nix Team in 2023 epitomizes the best of the best in sport who live the ideals of the Pho3nix Foundation: pursuing greatness through being active and inspiring generations to follow.”
