18th Alaska Football Cup

Witnessed once again the biggest, most eagerly anticipated football tournament in the country when over 300 teams composed of 4,200 players compete in the 18th Alaska Football Cup last December 7 and 8 at the Alabang Country Club Fields, Muntinlupa City.

No other football competition in the country comes close to the Alaska Football Cup which is played in 29 football fields under the supervision of more than 100 referees, which will find more than 2,600 goals scored in more than 700 games.

Alaska promotes positive values of teamwork, cooperation and fair play through sports activities like the football cup. Likewise, Alaska leads in promoting a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition by drinking milk regularly and by engaging in sports.

Football players who are six to 16 years old participate in the Alaska Football Cup coming from all over the Philippines including Metro Manila, Baguio, Olongapo, Angeles City, Tacloban, Naga, Bacolod, Cebu, Palawan, Legaspi, Los Baños, Iloilo and Batangas.

This partnership started in 1995 when Alaska teamed up with former professional international football player Tomas Lozano to create the 1st Alaska Football Cup. Alaska has contributed to the phenomenal growth of amateur football in the country through this annual competition.

Promoting the participation of the youth in football along with other sports like basketball and triathlon through the Alaska Power Camps exemplifies the company’s commitment to nation building through nutrition and sports.

The Alaska Football Cup has been widely acknowledged for its outstanding contribution to youth sports and development in the country, particularly in the grassroots level.

    Adidas revolutionizes the running watch

    adidas introduces the miCoach SMART RUN, the most advanced and intuitive wrist based running device on the market. For the first time, runners will be able to track their runs using GPS mapping, monitor their heart rate off their wrist, listen to their favorite music and get real-time coaching in a single, simple, color touch screen running watch.

    As SMART RUN uses optical technology to track your heart rate from your wrist, there are no cables, straps and additional sensors with this unique all-in-one device. A built-in accelerometer counts every step so you can monitor your stride rate. GPS tracks your speed, distance and logs your route and an MP3 player with Bluetooth® wireless audio delivers music and audible coaching guidance, eliminating the need for head phone cables and music players.

    “By combining the latest innovations, such as the Mio Wrist Based Continuous Heart Rate Technology, design and ease of use navigation, we consciously defied the rules that define other running watches,” said Simon Drabble, director of miCoach at adidas.

    “But it’s not just that which sets us apart from the competition. As part of the miCoach training system, it truly unlocks the runner’s full potential by making smart training easy and accessible. Whether you’re starting a new running program, training for a 10k or competing in another marathon, miCoach SMART RUN will make your training more efficient so you get the results you want,” continued Drabble.

    Interval (or zone) training is the best way to improve strength, speed and endurance. The miCoach system is founded on this concept with four colored zones – blue, green, yellow and red. SMART RUN uses these zones to coach you throughout your workout. Guidance comes in various forms including vibration, through the 1.45” color touch screen display and, if you are using a Bluetooth headset, the coach will tell you to speed up or slow down.

    Drabble continued, “Many runners fail to get the most out of their current running watches. Building training plans, transferring workouts and personalizing display information is cumbersome with these devices. With SMART RUN we change this. It is fully integrated with our web platform so training plans, completed workouts and settings are synced seamlessly over WLAN.”

    Smart training is not just about intervals. You will need to combine cardio with strength and flexibility to get the results you want and SMART RUN excels here too. More than 400 anatomically correct animations combine to make hundreds of workouts and plans. The animations play right on the watch helping to guide you correctly through each repetition and circuit.

    “The completeness and simplicity of Smart Run is astounding.” Terrence Mahon, Lead Endurance Coach, UK Athletics Federation said. “The visual and audible guidance for interval training is a leap forward from any other watch available. Another aspect that is often overlooked by runners is how important strength and flexibility workouts are in realizing performance gain and reducing injuries. To have this guidance on the watch too is truly groundbreaking.”

    Unrivaled in innovation and feature-set, the miCoach SMART RUN is completed with premium design language and fine styling, including athletic lines, stainless steel trim, high performance guerrilla glass and magnesium.

    The miCoach SMART RUN is available for purchase exclusively at the adidas eShop (shop.adidas.com.ph) at a retail price of PHP 19,995 from 1st December 2013.
