“As the number one sports drink on the planet, and in the Philippines, it is our duty to spread the word of proper hydration to athletes all over the country,” Pepsico Philippines Marketing Manager for Hydration Tony Atayde said. “Proper hydration is our advocacy and our commitment. It is a building block that Gatorade was built on. More than anything else, our latest commercial is a reminder to everyone that to perform your best, absolutely nothing beats Gatorade.”

 

Gatorade’s latest TVC debuted in time for the round two of the highly anticipated UAAP Season 78 Women’s Volleyball match-up between the Ateneo Lady Eagles and the DLSU Lady Spikers where the defending champions from Katipunan avenged their first round loss to the latter.

IMG_1701
      Finally Nike unveiled the 2016 Gilas Pilipinas National Team Kits that they will be wearing during the Olympic Qualifiers in Manila later this year and hopefully, for the Rio Games as well.This year’s uniforms feature some of the latest Nike Technology and Innovation that was just unveiled yesterday at the Nike Innovation Summit in New York City.

      About the Jersey?Pioneering Nike Vapor basketball uniforms impose a new order on the court by pairing progressive knit jerseys and shorts featuring Nike AeroSwift technology with innovative base layers to minimize game-time distractions and maximize performance.The system is anchored by basketball-specific base layer options, including arm sleeves, padded compression gear and knee sleeves, which together wick sweat from the skin, providing a feeling of protection and compression, and keeping the players’ arms and legs warm off-court.Designed to interact with the base layer but not cling, the lightweight, tailored jersey features stretch knit with engineered mesh as determined by extensive sweat-mapping studies.
    The short also introduces a FlyVent waistband that addresses the discomfort of traditional basketball waistbands via a new manufacturing process that combines two types of knit mesh into one highly secure, breathable band. This is matched to a hybrid of engineered knit mesh in the back and a hydrophobic four-way stretch woven fabric in the front. Additionally, the front of the shorts features a mobility vent. Placed specifically where basketball players need it most, based on their five key movements, it reveals a flash of tights as athletes move. The result is a 35% more breathable kit than that worn in 2012.

Moving down the body, designers further reduced distraction with the Nike Elite Versatility basketball sock. A 360-degree ankle-support system, dynamic arch compression, anatomical design and footpad cushioning add to the comfort and locked-in feel of the sock, while Dri-FIT fabric wicks away moisture and increases breathability.

National Teams, including United States, Brasil, Spain and China, debut Nike Vapor Basketball Uniforms with AeroSwift technology for 2016. Each uniform’s respective aesthetic captures the energy of Rio and Brasil’s dramatic nature via the common theme of exploded, vivid color, which extends the respective country’s national palette with rich saturated hues and vibrant neons. Individual details reveal each country’s culture and history at the same time iridescent mesh numbers and names, which appear and disappear as athletes move, take inspiration from beetle wings.

Sustainable Innovation
    Nike Vapor uniforms with AeroSwift technology have been partially constructed from recycled polyester, which is rendered from plastic bottles to produce fine yarn. Since 2010, more than three billion plastic bottles have been diverted from landfills and converted into recycled polyester for Nike performance products.
