Wow, what a full on last 6 weeks we have had, firstly starting with the World Triathlon Championship in Auckland during October. It was great to meet up with our new Emvale girl – Kate Robson; Kate was the 2011 30-34 age group World Triathlon Champion that was held in Beijing. Kate looked to defend her title but a leg injury a few months out hampered her training and her race on the day, she finished a creditable 24th. She had a few days in Queenstown after the event and her resolve to get back on the podium for 2013 World Champs in London is now in place. It was a great event and Auckland City turned into a lycra village for the weekend. I was very proud of the support all the athletes received from the NZ community and also how many friends and family of competing athletes came to visit Auckland. A truly amazing event which caters for all ages and sizes of athletes who competed against each other and themselves.
On the Rugby front Karina Stowers (Black Ferns), Jo O’Sullivan (Ireland), La Toya Mason (England) and Gloria Molak (Croatia) are wearing Emvale. We have recently launched our Protect Tops that we have been trialling for 6 months and are really pleased with the feedback we are getting. All Emvale’s sportswear is designed for the female athlete; we get plenty of comments like ‘at last sportswear for us girls’. We still find it uncomplimentary that Footy Boots, Compression Wear and Protect tops are deemed to be ‘unisex’ when in fact they are made for the male body.
Huge congratulations to Marama Davis in her selection for the NZ 7s team that competed in Dubai.
We have added to Emvale’s range; hoodie, gloves, shorty shorts and winter skull cap.
Also Emvale is now in the UK, we are currently looking to update our www to have a UK link. At present all UK enquiries can be directed either to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Julie has a good range of Emvale kit, check out our Facebook page in the photo section ‘Emvale in UK’ to see what we are currently stocking.
We have some great additions to our range with some being released before Christmas.
Will keep you updated on the progress.
