Under Armour’s inaugural foray into the world of competitive fitness, held at Singapore’s iconic Pasir Panjang Power Station, was a rapturous testament to the thriving community of fitness enthusiasts that the Lion City can be proud of.
Individuals across a diverse range of fitness disciplines gathered to compete in eight physical and mental tests specially curated by one of the world’s leading athletic performance apparel brands to make them better.
“With the UA COMBINE, we hope to challenge individuals to test their limits. It was great seeing the competitors display toughness, resilience, and grit throughout the challenges today, “says Justin Olivares, Marketing Director for Under Armour South Asia-Pacific.
For the men’s category, it was an intense competition throughout as C L Tan and Albert Chang emerged early as front-runners. Neck-and-neck approaching the last station, C L Tan’s ranking of 5th in the final 20m beep test station (endurance) was enough for him to triumph by a narrow margin of 8 points and claim bragging rights as the first male UA COMBINE SINGAPORE 2022 winner.
The women’s category saw Amanda Lim and Julie From rising above the pack, but Amanda’s prowess in the pull-up beep test (stamina) and the 20m sled push (power) proved too much for Julie to handle, allowing her to triumph by a margin of 46 points and claim bragging rights as the first women’s UA COMBINE SINGAPORE 2022 winner.
“Julie was absolutely killing it so I’m just happy to have managed to come out on top when the dust settled. Hoping that these events help encourage more people to kickstart their fitness journeys and that we can all improve collectively as a community,” said Amanda Lim, a professional swimmer with the Singapore national team.
Following the successful kick-off in Singapore, the UA COMBINE 2022 is set to travel to Malaysia, Australia and Thailand across September and October.
