SKINS to Sponsor Ironman Champion Kevin Collington

September 6, 2013

SKINS Compression, healing a gradient compression sportswear brand, view has forged a partnership with Kevin Collington, the reigning Ironman 70.3 US Pro Champion.

Under the new deal, SKINS will support Collington through the Ironman 70.3 World Championships held on Sunday 8 September in Henderson, Nevada, and beyond.

SKINS will provide the decorated triathlete ‘with the latest technology-driven compression garments known to best support proper muscle function, help prevent injury and aid in active recovery during the most extreme physical conditions.’

This latest sponsor deal follows another long-course-athlete-alliance, confirmed back in February this year, with reigning Ironman World Champion and Ironman 70.3 World Champ Leanda Cave.

“As an extreme athlete who competes frequently, I have to perform at my very best while training day in and day out,” said Kevin Collington, professional triathlete and SKINS ambassador. “And optimal recovery is the key to putting my best on the line.”

He added, “For this reason, I have been looking to SKINS in preparation for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships – the brand’s revolutionary compression and recovery wear has allowed my body to push its limits without injury and be competitive with the world’s best athletes.”

“We are thrilled to join forces with Kevin not only because of his reputation as one of the best triathletes in the sport, but because his passion, dedication and relentless approach to performance truly align with our brand,” said Johnny West, General Manager of SKINS North America.

“Leading into the 70.3 World Championships this weekend, we will be cheering for Kevin, who is predicted to be a leader in the competition. It truly gives us at SKINS the utmost satisfaction when we can support such a top-notch athlete through the products we engineer.”
