The TriNoma brand house of the world’s innovative sports apparel is  the fifth Under Armour branch in the Philippines

MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Regarded as the most innovative sports and fitness clothing line in the world today, Under Armour extended its reach in the Philippines when it launched ta new brand house in Metro Manila.

Under Armour formally opened a branch at Level 3 of the TriNoma Mall in Quezon City today- Friday, August 12.

The grand opening event will be held tomorrow- Saturday, August 13, with Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) superstars Asi Taulava and Jervy Cruz serving as special guests

Taulava, a Filipino-Tongan cager who has been strutting his wares on the PBA court for 16 years in five different teams, copped the league’s Most Valuable Player trophy in 2003 and led the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters to the All-Filipino Conference title in the same year.

Known by his moniker “The Rock” due to his prowess in the shaded lane, Taulava likewise represented flag and country in international competitions as he suited up for the Philippine national team on several occasions. And now, he is currently the starting center of the NLEX Road Warriors.

Meanwhile, Cruz rose to prominence in the collegiate ranks when he steered the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers to the UAAP Promised Land in 2006.

Proving that skill could topple height, Cruz managed to elevate his on-court stature as a legitimate inside threat in his first few years in the PBA , now part of the most prominent PBA team in the country- Ginebra.

Taulava and Cruz will be offering a special treat to Under Armour aficionados as both men are slated to conduct a basketball clinic on August 13, 4:00pm, at the TriNoma activity center.

Aside from Taulava and Cruz’s free basketball workshop, Under Armour fans will also be given a chance to unleash their inner Stephen Curry with the UA Basketball Shootout Challenge, where qualified contestants will go head-to-head by showcasing their three-point shooting skills.

In order to join the basketball clinic and UA Basketball Shootout Challenge, a single receipt purchase of at least P2,000 from August 12 to August 13 at the Under Armour TriNoma brand house will earn an exclusive pass to the festivities and a chance to take home awesome prizes.

adidas’ UltraBOOST Uncaged Now Available in the Philippines!

Ever since its first drop early last year, the adidas UltraBOOST has been showing runners and sneakerheads alike why it is indeed the greatest running shoe ever. Last June 29, a different kind of UltraBOOST hit stores as the adidas UltraBOOST Uncaged was dropped!

Read on the below official press release to know more.

PRESS RELEASE:

Inspiration from fans, innovation for performance
adidas drops the next generation of running greatness with UltraBOOST Uncaged

* Trademark adidas innovation updates for high performance
* Re-engineered upper delivers Uncaged look without compromise
* The perfect expression of adidas’ dedication to meeting today’s athletes’ needs

The wait is over. adidas embraces the future of running with the introduction of UltraBOOST Uncaged, a shoe inspired by fans and perfected by the innovation experts of adidas Running. Featuring a new adidas Primeknit upper, an internal support system and unique tiered lacing system, UltraBOOST Uncaged is engineered for maximum performance.

Originally created as an evolution of the greatest running shoe ever, UltraBOOST Uncaged continues the performance legacy of its predecessor with each element designed to collectively deliver an unparalleled running experience. To transform the Uncaged look into a performance vehicle, adidas adapted an internal midfoot skeleton using technology developed for the world’s top track athletes, delivering highly technical support and comfort with a rebellious look. A re-engineered adidas Primeknit upper provides flexible breathability and natural movement through each stride to complement an adaptive knit collar. A new multi-tiered lacing system allows runners to personalize style and fit, while specially-designed flat laces offer enhanced comfort and stability.

Alongside its new innovations, UltraBOOST Uncaged also maintains its signature UltraBOOST features. A supportive heel counter showcases the iconic embossed UltraBOOST name and keeps the foot locked in place for additional stability; a full length BOOST midsole provides industry leading Energy Return and a Stretchweb Continental Rubber™ outsole flexes naturally for superior traction with every step.

In addition to providing running greatness, UltraBOOST Uncaged represents the commitment adidas has to its fans and athletes. After global trendsetters first modified UltraBOOST by cutting off its cage, adidas embraced the movement and invited partners to create their own stylized versions of the shoe. Following this collaborative approach and in line with its dedication to delivering only the best for the athlete, adidas created its latest running innovation – a sleek new silhouette with the performance benefits that separate UltraBOOST from every other running shoe.

“UltraBOOST Uncaged combines the performance and innovation standard of UltraBOOST with the unique flair of our passionately creative fan base,” says Ben Herath, Vice President of Design for adidas Running. “adidas is committed to making athletes better through innovation and UltraBOOST Uncaged is another prime example of that pledge being met with the input of runners from around the world.”

adidas UltraBOOST Uncaged will be available globally on June 29 for Php8995.

STATEMENT ON MARY JOY TABAL REINSTATEMENT:

Ms. Mary Joy Tabal has taken another step in her request to be reinstated in the PATAFA national team.

We met with Tabal and her major supporter, Cebu-based Motor Ace Philippines, represented by Messrs. Jonel and Chippy Borromeo, both active sports benefactors.

We discussed the direction which Tabal wishes to take with respect to her future as a national athlete bearing in mind the short term, the forthcoming Rio Olympics, and the medium and long terms, after the Rio Olympics.

In accordance with IOC, POC, IAAF and PATAFA requirements, we sent Tabal to the PSC Sports Science Center , headed by Dr .Alex Pineda, for the mandatory, unannounced out-of- competition drug/doping test. Results will be known in 10 calendar days.

Tabal has agreed to comply with all PATAFA rules and regulations, both existing and still to be promulgated, although certain matters remain to be discussed with regard to where she will train and who her coach shall be.

We will process all that we took up during what was a fruitful discussion and will need a few days to promulgate our final position on her reinstatement .

Thank you.
