Under Armourhas announced its inaugural UA COMBINE competition to establish the ultimate benchmark in athlete performance.
A “combine” is synonymous in the United States with a scouting competition designed to establish the fitness benchmark needed by up-and-coming athletes.
This training competition will allow athletes from any sport or training discipline to compete against others in their country and truly test their limits.
With events set to take place across four countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and Thailand, the UA COMBINE 2022 season will kick off in Singapore on 20th August, and travel to Kuala Lumpur on 3rd September, Sydney on 17th September and Bangkok on October 1st, 2002.
Registration for UA COMBINE 2022 will be open to 300 competitors (150 males and 150 females) per event. All athletes taking part in UA COMBINE will also receive a head-to-toe Under Armour competitor kit.
“Human performance is at the core of the Under Armour brand”, says Justin Olivares, Marketing Director for Under Armour South Asia-Pacific.
“With UA COMBINE, we envisage this to be more than just a competition of testing skill and athleticism; it will be a unique and exciting experience for athletes around the region to really challenge themselves mentally and physically and become better versions of themselves.”
“This year, we will be rolling out four UA COMBINE events, and our intention is that this will be a marquee event for athletes to come together and see how their performance measures up to some of the best in the region. No matter your chosen sport or training discipline, we want you to sign up and test your limits at UA COMBINE 2022.”
Athletes competing in UA COMBINE will be tasked to participate in a total of eight physical and mental tests devised by Under Armour‘s Global Head of Athlete Performance, Michael Watts.
Watts, who is based at Under Armour’s global athlete performance center in Portland, Oregon said, “UA COMBINE will give participants the opportunity to challenge themselves against some of the exact same tests we put our world-class athletes like Stephen Curry and Anthony Joshua through.”
Each test will challenge the athlete’s agility, stamina, vertical, power, endurance, strength, speed, and cognition. Points will be earned for each completed test and athletes will be ranked according to their final result.
UA COMBINE 2022 medals and cash prizes of S$5,000, S$2500 and S$1000 will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed athletes in both the men’s and women’s divisions respectively.
UA COMBINE participants must be at least 18 years or older at the time of registration.
