As Part of Televised Sports Competition, Veteran Athletes Game on Fast-Action RL2460HT Monitors
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Nov. 10, 2015 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned professional gaming monitor pioneer, today announced a new partnership with OurVetSuccess, producer of the Triumph Games. Part of the company’s BenQ Cares community outreach program, the agreement provides RL2460HT gaming monitors for the eSports segment of the 2015 Triumph Games. CBS Sports Network will air the one-hour primetime television special on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. ET, with a second showing at 10 p.m. ET. CBS Sports Network’s John Schriffen and Patrick Murphy, who was nominated in September by President Barack Obama to serve as Under Secretary of the U.S. Army and is also a contributor on MSNBC, will co-host the show.
The 2015 Triumph Games is dedicated to telling the stories of U.S. military veterans’ remarkable ability to adapt and succeed, no matter what the circumstances. In the 2015 Games, 12 world-class veteran athletes earned a coveted invitation to participate after qualifying through a rigorous nomination and selection process. Sports organizations such as the International Olympic Committee, the Paralyzed Veterans of America, and SoldierStrong nominated each athlete based on honorable military service and athletic achievements, including previously winning national and international medals in their respective sports.
“Supporting activities such as the Triumph Games is what BenQ Cares is all about,” said J.Y. Hu, Vice President, Business Line Management at BenQ America Corp. “By raising awareness for our veterans, BenQ is able to increase its role in giving back to the community. We are proud to have provided our monitors for the competition’s gaming segment and look forward to celebrating these inspiring veterans.”
The Triumph Games were launched by a group of veterans looking to increase positive awareness of successful military veterans in the public eye. The competition follows the athletes as they train from home over eight weeks and gear up for three rounds of competition including a triathlon, a live broadcast video gaming competition, and a motorsports challenge. Filmed in New York, each round presented the athletes with unknown circumstances and unfamiliar environments that tested their ability to adapt, and to leverage their physical strength, mental acuity, and will to win.
During the gaming segment, which was broadcast live on Twitch, athletes competed in top strategy games such as Hearthstone, utilizing BenQ’s RL2460HT gaming monitors. After all three rounds of competition are complete, the winning athlete is awarded $100,000.
“BenQ has been a super partner, upping the excitement for our athletes to compete on some of the market’s most advanced technology,” said Triumph Games’ Co-Founder and CEO, Mary L. Hagy, also an Army veteran. “We are very thankful for the company’s support, and for the opportunity to highlight the inspirational stories of these twelve extremely courageous military veterans.”
