Whereby compression apparel made by Compressport® proves again that being well geared on long distance runs, such as the Trail World Championship, across tracks and fields, has its say! And to qualify for the 2017 long distance trail running championships one had to beat the clock!
SAGE CANADAY SURE DID IN MOAB, UTAH!
When he finished at 2h58, just 24 seconds behind the uncatchable Eritrean Azerya Weldermariam. The roads were dirty, double-tracked at some places, with steep pitches at others, but no doubt his compression calf sleeves were of great help.
Sage Canaday, earning his place for the 2017 Trail Running World Championships in Italy, could not have dreamt a better finish to his trail year.
NEW YORK CITY & MICHAEL WARDIAN’S TRACK RECORDS
Then comes New York City Marathon, where Compressport partner Wardian, crossed the finish line after a 2:33:18 run, completing his series of 6 marathons and claiming the fastest time across all races in 2016.
An extraordinary, if not “super-heroic”, performance considering the fact that he had thousands of run-miles and 6 series of marathon in the legs since the beginning of the Abbot WMM 2016-season!
His results …
Tokyo 2:28:14 London 2:27:27 Boston 2:31:39 Berlin 2:28:19 Chicago 2:32:02
During the wheelchair series of that same NY City marathon, our Laurens Molina made it 5th while reigning Abbott World Marathon Majors champion Mary Keitany commandingly grasped the 1st place.
TWO WEEKS BACK …
At the IAU Trail Running World Championships, French Ludovic Pommeret and Spanish Diego Pazos took 5th and 6th places while in the women`s league Spain`s Azara Garcia was 2nd. We are really proud of you guys! Well done!
While a few some will run for some kind of White House this week, thousands will hit the roads of Las Vegas on the 12th November, for the most “♪ rock & roll ♪” marathon of all times!
At the other end of the world, Malaysia and China will live to the tune of the IRONMAN® Series of triathlon.
Stay tuned for the next outcome and sport in and with COMPRESSPORT !
