PUMA CALLS ON PLAYERS TO PLAY LOUD IN NEW evoSPEED 17 SL-S

Global Sports Brand PUMA today unveiled the latest colour update for the evoSPEED 17 SL-S. Featuring a bold Gecko Green outsole and graphic pattern fusing into the allover Safety Yellow upper, the new evoSPEED 17 SL-S has a refreshed look. The new boot will be worn on pitch by PUMA’s SPEED stars including Antoine Griezmann, Sergio Agüero and Marco Reus.

The latest boot in the PUMA SPEED family, the evoSPEED17 SL-S shares the same philosophy of enhanced speed and agility. Constructed with a Japanese microfibre upper material, the SL-S feels soft and comfortable while allowing a better touch on the ball. The updated laser-cut SPEEDFRAME structure optimises the boot’s shape further, providing support during forward acceleration and quick turns. For optimal fit and additional support, the boot features a minimalistic external heel counter. Additional performance features of the SL-S can be found in the outsole. The SPEEDTRACK spine provides the perfect balance between stability in the midfoot and flexibility in the forefoot, enhancing both speed and agility. The lightweight nylon outsole’s stud configuration is composed of a mix of bladed and conical studs, providing increased levels of stability, traction and acceleration.

Speaking about the new boots, Atlético Madrid star player, Antoine Griezmann said, “I am excited to step out on pitch in this new evoSPEED SL-S colourway, it is a bold colour combination that I think the young players will love. I am looking forward to playing in the second half of the season as we still have a lot to fight for in the major competitions. We finished top of our group in the Champions League so I am extremely motivated to train hard in these new boots and perform at the top of my game to bring us closer to victory.”

PUTRAJAYA, 29 August 2016 – Runners can find themselves alongside fellow Malaysians and international running enthusiasts in the spirit of fitness and fun at the inaugural HSN21KM run set to take place on 8 October 2016. The official launch of HSN21KM – the marquee event at this year’s Hari Sukan Negara celebration, was officiated today by the Minister of Youth and Sports, YB Khairy Jamaluddin together with the President of Muse Group Asia, Datuk Megat Zulkarnain Omardin. Muse Group Asia is the organiser and originator of the event.

“I commend this initiative by renowned event organiser Muse Group Asia and the Ministry is pleased to support HSN21KM. It is good to see the private sector coming forward to support the Hari Sukan Negara which is our national agenda in creating a sporting nation. Through HSN21KM and Hari Sukan Negara, we want to further ignite and strengthen the desire to keep fit and be healthy among all Malaysians. I am confident HSN21KM will receive good response from the public, based on the overwhelming support at last year’s Hari Sukan Negara activities. By encouraging the organisation of sporting events like HSN21KM, we also hope to discover new sporting talents,” said YB Khairy. This is the second year Hari Sukan Negara is being held, after the inaugural celebration in 2015.

Held in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, with three recognisable flag-off points, HSN21KM aims to bring together runners from all walks of life – inculcating the spirit of running in the young ones, challenging the elite and inspiring others to beat their personal bests or make their maiden attempt in a running event. “This will be an event for anyone and everyone. From elite runners to casual strollers and just about everyone in between, HSN21KM will be a challenge, and more importantly, also a fun event that unites the people of Malaysia and international running aficionados. Since we opened for registration, we currently have 6,000 participants registered for HSN21KM, and we are geared up for the registrations to come flowing in after this launch,” said Datuk Megat Zulkarnain.

The event will feature three distances - 21km, 10km and 5km. The 5km fun run is designed as an obstacle race, and unlike the more gruelling, mud-slinging variety, there will be fun-filled obstacles for the whole family instead this time. It is also unique in that participation is open to persons with disabilities, wheelchair-bound or otherwise. Flagging off at the famous Padang Merbok, the 5km fun run will make a thoroughly enjoyable race for families and fun-loving participants.

Dataran Merdeka will be the flag-off point for the 21km race. Set to be the highlight of HSN21KM due to the record-breaking opportunity, the 21km route will pass through several known landmarks such as Bukit Tunku, Petronas Twin Towers and more. The 10km race, which is expected to have the largest participation, will flag off at Jalan Raja Laut, also passing through several landmarks on its route. All three races will end at Dataran Merdeka.  

HSN21KM has much to offer participants. First off, the prize purses being offered for the various categories are large, with up to RM36,000 to be won. The winner of the 21km Open Men’s and Women’s categories can look forward to a RM 7,000 cash prize with various purses offered up to 6th place in the 21km Open and Veterans’ categories for both men and women. Cash prizes are also offered to the top five finishers in the 10km race – for the Open and Veterans, and Men and Women’s categories.

Beat Your Record is a special feature of HSN21KM, where Malaysian participants will have the opportunity to surpass the National Record for 21km and take home a whopping RM 20,000 incentive. Arul Thevar Muniandy, who recorded a time of 1 hour 7 minutes 59 seconds in Ipoh on 4 July 2004, currently holds the men’s National record for the half marathon, while in the women’s category, record holder Norlida Ismail set the best time of 1 hour 27 minutes 15 seconds on 21 May 2005 at the Arafura Games, Australia.

“These records are set by fellow Malaysians, who have a place in history because of their outstanding feat. It has been more than 10 years since anyone has broken those records. HSN21KM challenges runners to make this attempt. If you break the record, you’ll be a newly discovered Malaysian sporting star! In the years to come, we are also looking to expand Malaysia’s reputation as an international destination for competitive runners, by organising bigger races in the future and more. The HSN21KM is an excellent beginning for the Ministry’s collaborations with the private sector to make this vision a reality,” added YB Khairy.

For runners who are capable of bringing their family and friends together, the Race Captain is just what they need. Individuals who can get 10 other people to sign up for HSN21KM in any category can run for free and will be called Race Captains.

Several companies have come on board as official partners and sponsors for HSN21KM. PROTON is the Presenter Sponsor, and is offering a car up for grabs as the lucky draw prize, which will be held at Dataran Merdeka in conjunction with the race as well as Hari Sukan Negara. Both HSN21KM runners and visitors to the Hari Sukan Negara celebration at Dataran Merdeka are eligible for this coupon-based lucky draw. With Brooks Malaysia signing up as the Official Apparel Sponsor for HSN21KM, all participants can expect running T-shirts courtesy of Brooks. HSN21KM has also signed up Lucozade as the Official Beverage for the run and Swiss-Inn as the Official Hotel.

The race pack will be available for collection on 1 and 2 October 2016 from 10am to 6pm at Dewan Dato’ Mokhtar Dahari in the Olympic Sports Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

There will be much to occupy members of the public at Dataran Merdeka in conjunction with Hari Sukan Negara. Activities to expect include popular sports and games like netball, futsal, arm-wrestling, tug-of-war and an eSports competition, among others. There wlll be a OneSilat National Series competition for a touch of the traditional, while visitors young and old can also occupy themselves with kids’ activities, a sports bazaar and much more.

Registration for HSN21KM ends on 15 September 2016. Registration will close after this date, or if the maximum capacity is reached before the closing date, whichever comes first.

MAIN EVENT FIGHTERS EV "E.T." TING AND ROB "RUTHLESS" LISITA FACE-OFF AT ONE: UNBREAKABLE WARRIORS PRESS CONFERENCE


Mr. Victor Cui, CEO of ONE Championship speaking at the ONE: UNBREAKABLE WARRIORS Press Conference at the Westin.

17 August 2016 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: The largest sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), has just announced its collaboration with Tune Talk and UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP (UMG) for the event ONE: UNBREAKABLE WARRIORS which is set to take place at the Stadium Negara on 2 September in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. UMG will be bringing artists Faizal Tahir and Ella to perform live at the event. The card will be headlined by a massive bout between Malaysia’s own Ev “E.T.” Ting and Australia’s “Ruthless” Rob Lisita.

CEO of ONE Championship, Victor Cui stated, “The fans in Malaysia, particularly in Kuala Lumpur are some of the most passionate people in the world. The atmosphere of live ONE Championship events in this city is hard to match anywhere in the world. Earlier this year, ONE had great success with matching together live MMA with elements of a rock concert in Bangkok. It was such an amazing show. Together with our partners UMG and Tune Talk, we are going to do the same for the people of Kuala Lumpur. Fans can expect an awesome evening of incredible fights, action, excitement and world-class musical performances.”

Peter Davis (Left) and Shannon “One Shin” Wiratchai (Right) facing off while Victor Cui, CEO of ONE Championship and Kenny Ong, Managing Director of UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP, Malaysia and Singapore looks on.
Mr Kenny Ong, Managing Director of UMG, Malaysia and Singapore, said: "We are delighted to collaborate with ONE Championship on an evening of live sporting action and music. We are excited with the concept of a live MMA sport event combined with the energy and adrenaline of a rock concert, and making this a historic occasion. Kuala Lumpur will witness an atmosphere like no other at ONE: UNBREAKABLE WARRIORS. We are ecstatic for everyone to be part of all the excitement of fight night."

Jason Lo, Tune Talk CEO stated, “When Tune Talk started this partnership with ONE Championship five years ago, you just knew great things were in store. The dream was to build an MMA community here in Malaysia because we foresaw the potential that the sport has. We ended up uniting Malaysians for the love of MMA. Through hard work and dedication from both companies, the Malaysian MMA scene has grown healthily with locally bred MMA fighters through the Malaysian Invasion Mixed Martial Arts (MIMMA). Mohd Aiman, Keanu Subba and Agilan Thani, are among great talents discovered by MIMMA. These MIMMA Champions are now fighting for ONE Championship alongside the existing big names of MMA in Malaysia, proving that our country can produce top-notch talented fighters. ONE: UNBREAKABLE WARRIORS will be one for the record books due to the massive fights which will draw attention globally. Malaysia will again bear witness to the rise of Malaysian MMA and nothing shall halt our dreams of taking the sport into unprecedented levels.”

Ev “E.T.” Ting is a mixed martial artist of Malaysian descent. He lives and trains out of Auckland, New Zealand, and has amassed a stellar 11-3 record so far in his professional career. A winner of his last two bouts by impressive submission over top caliber opponents, Ting is one of the most talented fighters to come out of Malaysia.

33-year-old “Ruthless” Rob Lisita of Campbelltown, Australia, is known as a relentless offensive force, armed with powerful striking combinations intended to score highlight-reel finishes. He is 14-8 as a professional mixed martial artist, and has proven to be a fixture in big fights owing to his fan-friendly style. A veteran fighter who has faced the best in his division and beyond, Lisita looks to continue fulfilling his goal of competing against the promotion’s top contenders.
