UNLIMITED YOUTH: SISTER MADONNA BUDER

August 20, 2016 Leave a comment

The “Unlimited Youth” film is the latest installment in the Nike “Unlimited” Campaign, which includes the “Unlimited Courage” film, “Unlimited You” film, the company’s recent series of athlete shorts and more, with more to come through the month of August, hails both the everyday athletes and the champion athletes who regularly push their limits — and who are poised to prove their unlimited potential this summer and beyond.

“Unlimited Youth” celebrates an extraordinary athlete, Sister Madonna Buder, and her determination to defy conventional conceptions of age.

When Sister Madonna Buder needed a little extra oomph to complete her first IRONMAN® World Championship triathlon in Hawaii, she predictably channeled the divine. “I thought of the finish line as the entrance to the final finish line, into the Pearly Gates,” she recalls. “That’s what drew me to [it].”

Sister Buder completed that race in 1985, at the age 65. At 75, the American nun became the oldest woman to ever complete an IRONMAN triathlon. At 82, she set a world record as the oldest IRONMAN triathlon competitor. Today, at 86 years old, she has completed over 40 IRONMAN races, each comprising of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and 26.2-mile run. Her steely resolve has earned her the epithet the “Iron Nun.” Along the way she’s had some setbacks — missing a race finish by a matter of seconds, multiple broken bones, wetsuit issues — but, she proclaims, “The only failure is not to try, because your effort in itself is a success.”

Sister Buder’s introduction to sport came just seven years before her first race in Hawaii, when she attended a workshop on the Oregon Coast that was led by a priest who championed running as a way to harmonize the mind, body and soul. Sister Buder took this creed to the extreme, burning out on the sport before discovering the variety of the triathlon. “That was the salvation,” she declares. Her physical endurance she attributes to listening to her body and maintaining a positive mindset.

“You carry your attitude with you,” Sister Buder elaborates. “You either achieve or you self-destruct. If you think positively, you can even turn a negative into a positive.” Along with this spiritual guidance, she imparts simple, yet easily applicable performance advice to younger athletes: “One step at a time makes a marathon.”

Nike Air Presto’s 2016 Comeback

image001

*** PRESS RELEASE ***

Originally released in 2000, the Nike Air Presto became famous for its irreverent advertising, alpha sizing, ultimate comfort and ahead-of-its-time sock-like construction.

In the decade and a half since, the shoe has transcended performance running to become a sport-style fixture. Now, 16 years after its introduction, Nike is updating the icon with new materials and technology to create the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit.

The shoe’s signature adaptable upper becomes even more pronounced through the use of Flyknit, which delivers stretch in the collar, ventilation in the toe and tongue, and support in the heel and underneath the toecap.

In another first for the Presto franchise, the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit features a mid-cut collar, which lends a modern aesthetic. The TPU cage is reengineered to fit the Flyknit upper, while the ultra tooling with rubber in high-contact wear areas improves comfort and durability.

NIKE UNVEILS A WAVE OF INNOVATION THAT DEFINES THE FUTURE OF SPORT

March 21, 2016 Leave a comment

New breakthroughs in performance innovation feature adaptive lacing, the next generation of Nike Air, and Nike+: the all-access pass to your potential

nike_031716

*** PRESS RELEASE ***

March 17, 2016 – Today, NIKE, Inc. (NYSE: NKE), the world’s largest and most innovative sports brand, revealed the future of sport, highlighted by the groundbreaking “adaptive lacing” platform, as well as a pioneering football (soccer) technology that separates mud from cleats and transformations in the celebrated innovations of Nike Air and Nike Flyknit that reinvent modern footwear design.

NIKE, Inc. President & CEO Mark Parker, at a global event in New York City, debuted these innovations and unveiled the new Nike+ app, the all-access pass for athletes to reach their potential. The app connects athletes with Nike’s most-coveted products and services in a simple, seamless way.

The new Nike+ delivers a personal store, on-demand coaching and the best of Nike at your fingertips. These features come to life through a personal feed that recommends products tailored to you, coaching for all levels that adapts to your performance and schedule, and a connection to the endless motivation found in the world of Nike’s in-person experiences.

“Today showcases a breadth of innovation that only Nike can deliver,” said Parker. “It represents a fundamental shift in how we serve the athlete. We’ve entered a new era of personalized performance. Athletes want more than a dashboard and data – they want a more personal relationship, one that gives them real solutions and total access to the best product and services.”

The groundbreaking products unveiled by Parker represent Nike’s relentless drive to exceed athletes’ expectations:

Nike HyperAdapt 1.0: Ushering in this new era of personalized performance, HyperAdapt is the first-ever step in the concept of “adaptive lacing.” It delivers a precise fit that can be adjusted to the changing needs of the game. Through this pioneering innovation, Nike offers a glimpse into the future of footwear. The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 will be exclusively available to purchase through the new Nike+ app.

Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit: Since the advent of the Air platform 40 years ago, designers required foam and rubber to separate the Air and the foot for support and traction purposes. No longer. Today, thanks to years of research, these barriers can be removed to create maximum feel and efficiency for runners. With simply a Nike Flyknit upper and Nike Air, the Nike Air VaporMax reimagines how footwear is made and offers athletes the purest cushioning ever created.

Nike Anti-Clog Traction: Mud is the opponent of speed. Nike Anti-Clog Traction helps prevent mud from sticking to the bottom of football boots (cleats) with a new adaptive polymer. This premium traction helps players avoid the slips and excess weight that can separate victory from defeat by offering no distractions in all conditions. Anti-Clog is Nike’s latest intersection of sport and science at the molecular level, as it solves for the problems that athletes have long thought unsolvable.

Nike Flyknit: The Nike Flyknit platform continues to accelerate its power as it rewrites the rules of performance engineering. Today, Nike Flyknit is available in all sports for all athletes in all conditions, a quantum leap forward for a technology which four years ago launched solely for marathoners. The combinations of yarns and digital knitting techniques that make up Flyknit now offer athletes stronger and more weatherproof options, as Nike continues to explore this groundbreaking technology’s infinite possibilities to solve the world of sport’s greatest challenges.

As part of the event, Parker also discussed Nike’s design philosophy of creating footwear and apparel through an approach of head-to-toe product integration. Known as “System of Performance,” this philosophy obsesses the edges and seams that connect products to each other – always designing for athletes in motion. More information on System of Performance is expected to be released during the second day of the event.

Visit Nike News at news.nike.com for product release date information. The new Nike+ app will be available in June.
