Endurance Weekend 2016

Three years ago, premiere property developer Filinvest started something that would test the will and skill of many endurance athletes… runners/ultrarunners, triathletes, mountain/xc bikers heeded the challenge of racing for 6-12-24hours. The objective is to do as many laps as you can, on a race course designed to give each athlete a tough and challenging experience. At first glance, one would think it would be easy…running/riding on a single track trail that hops from one vacant lot to another is just like strolling in the park. But when done multiple times, with competitors literally breatjing down your neck, that’s when pressure sets in.  

Participants need to strategize…when to rest or take a break, when to refuel (eat), and when to kick it up a notch to outlast the others.
As Don Ubaldo, Filinvest AVP has said…we already did it three times (years), but guess what? We never learn from our “foolishness” that’s why we’re doing it again (LOL)…eliciting laughter from the athletes and media, present at the event launch held at the Crimson Hotel.

This year though, it will strictly be a mountain bike race. Top individual athletes such as XC champ Ariana Dormitorio, dad/coach Donjie, and teams from all over town are once again eager to showcase their wares in this one of a kind test of will and character. Uncertain of who will emerge as King/Queen of the urban trails…excited on who would come out on top? Join this year’s Endurance Weekend 2016, to be held on 8-9 October at the Filinvest City in Alabang.

For more information, visit Filinvest City website (www.filinvestcity.com) or Filinvest City’s Official Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/ FilinvestCityOFFICIAL). You may also email racemechanics@gmail.com for inquiries.
So start training and see you at Filinvest City on race day!

Manila, Philippines (Sept. 7, 2016) –Mamuyac bagged first spot among the 10 young athletes from all over Asia at SC’s Under Armour Asia Camp in Taiwan yesterday.

 

The Philippines never missed out this tour as basketball is the country’s top sport and being able to play on court with Stephen Curry is one of the Filipino youth’s most awaited basketball experience.

 

Gian represented the country together with Juan Gomez De Liano of UP Maroons team.

Shoot like Curry in the new Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack

the Curry One MVP and a new Curry Two MVP colourway)

 

Manila, August 2016 – U.S. high performance sports apparel label Under Armour celebrates U.S. National Basketball Association (NBA) superstar Stephen Curry’s outstanding season performance and second consecutive Kia NBA MVP Award with the Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack, containing a re-release of the Curry One MVP and a new Curry Two MVP colourway.

 

Curry’s impression on the sport of basketball is a lesson in the power of perseverance, through sheer will and hard work. In the 2014-2015 season, Curry impressed all by being the first player ever to hit 300 three-pointers in a season. He claimed the 2014-15 Kia NBA MVP Award for his performance and earned his first Larry O’Brien World Championship trophy. Following that, in the 2015-2016 season, he helped to lead the Golden State Warriors to the single-season record for wins, shattered his own three-point record of 400 three-pointers in a season, led the league in scoring and joined the prestigious 50-40-90 shooting club.  

 

For his outstanding achievements, Curry earned the 2015-16 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Award. He is the 11th player (third point guard) in league history to earn the award in back-to-back seasons.

 

“Stephen Curry’s impact on the game of basketball is immeasurable,” said Kip Fulks, Chief Marketing Officer, Under Armour. “His game and will to dominate is unlike anything we’ve ever seen in the NBA, and his cultural reach off the court is equally transcendent. At Under Armour we are thrilled and humbled to be alongside Stephen on this journey, and look forward to his continued perseverance in making himself a better athlete every single day.”

 

Commemorating the signature footwear Curry wore in the back-to-back MVP seasons, the Under Armour Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack has sleek gold colours and design elements, reinforced by Under Armour’s innovative technology. It echoes the relentless strength and tenacity demonstrated by Curry, whose ability to hit shots off the dribble, in traffic and from incredible distance took the world by storm.

 

The Under Armour Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack will be available exclusively on www.underarmour.com.ph and Titan retail

UA ARCHITECH 3D PRINTED PERFORMANCE TRAINER & UA SLINGSHOT RUNNING FOOTWEAR TO PROVIDE PERSONAL MOTIVATION FOR ELITE SWIMMER

Under Armour, the global leader in innovative performance footwear, apparel and equipment has taken footwear innovation to the next level. In March, the Brand introduced its first-ever 3D printed performance trainer, the UA Architech. The UA Architech is a 360-degree performance training shoe that features a functional 3D printed midsole and 3D ClutchFit auxetic upper design that creates a “super-hybrid” trainer. This performance trainer provides athletes with the ultimate stability and cushioning to take on the most intense workouts, and it’s travelling all the way to Rio on the feet of elite swimmer, Michael Phelps.

In addition to the state-of-the-art technology and custom color design, Michael’s footwear features a personal touch to provide an additional source of motivation as he heads into competition. His 3-month old son, Boomer’s footprint is printed on the insole of the shoe as a personal reminder that Boomer is with him every step and stroke of the way.

The innovative 3D printed midsole of the UA Architech was combined with a flow-molded 3D ClutchFit auxetic upper to provide athletes with a shoe that not only gives a locked-in, supportive feel, but also flexes and moves with the foot to provide a zero distractions experience. Add in the Brand’s unparalleled Charged Cushioning underfoot for responsiveness and comfort, and a thin rubber outsole for traction and you have Under Armour’s most elite performance trainer.  

A new color of the UA Architech will be available as a limited edition offering to consumers this August on UA.com. The shoe, which retails for $299.99, was the first 3D printed performance trainer available to consumers. The first color was available in March and sold out in under 20 minutes.

 

Under Armour also geared Michael up with a custom pair of the UA Speedform Slingshot Running shoes in a limited edition red, white and blue colorway that also feature Boomer’s footprint. This innovative running shoe delivers zero distractions with a seamless, zonal compression, 3D knit upper and Under Armour Charged Cushioning. The limited edition color way is available on UA.com.
