Nike Free Flyknit: 2nd-skin Fit + Flexible Sole

Runners can now reap the benefits of natural motion found in Nike Free and the supportive, second-skin fit of Nike Flyknit in a single shoe. The Nike Free Flyknit unites two of Nike’s most innovative and popular technologies to deliver barefoot-like flexibility and a compression fit that locks the foot in place

Nike Free Flyknit is the ultimate expression of natural performance principles, combining a supportive, sock-like upper and a flexible midsole and outsole that move with the body,” says Sean McDowell, Creative Director for Nike Running. “The compression fit brings the foot closer to the sole for enhanced lockdown and propulsion”

A new, more compressive NIke Flyknit construction in the shoe upper secures the runner’s foot to the shoe platform. The unique zoned performance mapping pattern of the Nike Flyknit upper is derived from insights on how pressure is exerted on the top of the foot. Nike Sport Research Lab scientists employed pressure-mapping technology to locate stress areas, and designers used the data to inform the new upper. Zones on the top of the foot have engineered stretch built to enable natural flex, while a tighter weave at the perimeter stabilizes the forefoot and heel. Additionally, elasticized construction fits securely around the ankle for a comfortable, secure fit. By knitting a one-piece upper, Nike Flyknit construction reduces Nike's typical upper waste by an average of 88 percent

The advanced Nike Flyknit upper sits atop a Nike Free+ 5.0 midsole, which lies in the middle of the Nike Free spectrum, providing mid-range cushioning. (On a scale or 1-10, 1 is akin to running barefoot and 10 is comparable to a traditional running shoe.) The articulated Nike Free sole is flexible and moves naturally with the foot. Diagonal hot-knifed sipes (strategically-engineered flex grooves) through the arch help ensure natural movement in the mid-foot as a runner transitions stride

The Nike Free Flyknit (SRP: PHP7,895) comes on the heels of decades of biomechanics research and design exploration with the intent of providing the best run possible. The breakthrough combination of a compressive Nike Flyknit upper with a highly flexible Nike Free midsole and outsole adds up to a running shoe that delivers a more natural ride, amplifying athletes’ ability to move quickly and comfortably over distance

MILO Little Olympics kicks-off in Cebu City

MILO Little Olympics, the country’s longest-running interschool youth sports competition, is launching its 26th season with the first of four regional legs at the Cebu City Sports Complex on August 16 to 18 and 24 to 25. After Visayas, the competition will advance to Mindanao, NCR and Luzon, before returning to the Queen City of the South for the 26th MILO Little Olympics National Finals

With the invaluable support of the Department of Education, the Philippine Sports Commission and the Philippine Olympic Committee, the MILO Little Olympics offers a variety of sports events, including Athletics, Badminton, Chess, Football, Gymnastics, Lawn Tennis, Swimming, Table Tennis, Tae Kwon Do, Volleyball, Sipa or Sepak Takraw and Scrabble, to student-athletes from public and private schools nationwide

Last year, Team Visayas failed to secure its fourth consecutive victory against rival NCR, who took home the Perpetual Trophy for the first time as the Overall Champion. Over 30,000 sports enthusiasts filled the Marikina Sports Complex to witness the 25th MILO Little Olympics grand finale. “We are expecting even more spectators and sports enthusiasts to gather and experience the thrilling youth sports games in the different regional events,” added de Vera. “We are also looking forward to seeing a heated rivalry unfold as NCR guards its throne from a former Champion”

The 26th season of the MILO Little Olympics has been set to take place in a new Luzon province, Baguio City. In place of Lingayen, Pangasinan, athletes will compete in the City of Pines to allow more budding talents of Luzon to experience the premiere sporting event, while still within proximity of Pangasinan-based participants

37th National MILO Marathon Dumaguete

Rodil Quilab and Mereeis Ramirez swept the 21-K division top honors at the 37th National MILO Marathon in Dumaguete Sunday. Both runners received a cash prize of P10,000.00 and a trophy while clinching an all-expense trip to the National Finals set in December at the SM Mall of Asia grounds.

Of 3,496 runners who competed in the race, 12 other marathoners had qualified to National Finals to join victors Quilab and Ramirez. This season’s MILO Marathon King and Queen will get the chance to compete with the world’s finest athletes at the esteemed Paris Marathon in 2014.

Despite today’s difficult terrain, Quilab prevailed in the half-marathon distance at an impressive 1:15:05, followed closely by resilient contenders Riez Enriquez (1:15:33) and Romulo Jr. Balinas (1:16:31). The 22-year old Iligan bet bagged the third award at the Cagayan de Oro Dahilayan Trail 55K Ultra Marathon in 2011 and drew a second place finish at the Kagay-an Festival Marathon in 2012.

In the distaff side, 34-year old Ramirez proved her dominance by clocking in at 1:37:57, trouncing female counterparts Iresh Belleza (1:48:01) and Nelfa Bayonado (1:52:10). Ramirez reclaimed a regional lead title after a second place finish at last year’s MILO Marathon Bacolod 21-K female eliminations race. She copped the 2010 MILO Marathon 21-K division run by besting fellow elite tracksters in Dumaguete.

As an ongoing commitment to develop sports in the country, MILO’s Help Give Shoes advocacy provides pairs of rubber shoes to various public schools across the country. A total of 500 pairs were delivered to beneficiary schools today in Dumaguete, namely North City Elementary School, San Jose National High School, Calindagan Elementary School, Dumaguete City High School, and Junob National High School. With the invaluable support of the Department of Education and the National MILO Marathon runners, MILO has given a total of 27,700 shoes to date.
