Do you dream of one day being one of the greats like Caster Semenya or Wayde Van Niekerk? We all know it takes loads of hard work and great determination, but you also need the right shoes to get you out of the starting blocks.
Olympic International recently launched the Flash Sprint to get your started. Says Marketing Manager, Fahiem Frizlar: “In track and field, we all know that a fraction of a second could mean the difference between first and second place. Sprinting is all about going short distances in the fastest time possible, which means that your spikes must be able to handle enormous stress as you shoot out of the blocks towards the finish line. We understand this and know that athletes need all the help they can get from their shoes to perform at their best.”
The Flash Sprint is available in bold colours and is super light-weight with a flexible, aerodynamic sole. The upper is a breathable mesh wrapped in a flashy honeycomb design synthetic overlay. The padded collar offers extra comfort around the ankle area while the inner sock is made from punched memory foam, which enhances the comfort and breathability of the shoe. The shoes are supplied with a second set of spikes to allow for use on different running surfaces.
Frizlar concludes: “The Flash Sprint is perfect for any young aspiring athlete and are designed to put you on your toes and provide as much traction as possible. Remember choosing your size is a matter of taste. Some athletes prefer a tighter fit, sometimes moving down a size from their training shoes, whilst other runners find smaller sizes too snug. Try them on to find the best fit.”
The Flash Sprint is available in sizes 6 to 11. Available at retailers countrywide, the suggested retail price is R799.
