Tenth generation of award-winning running shoe set to be launched

Born from a belief that a lightweight shoe can pack a heavyweight punch, the first Kinvara changed the running industry game. This year, Saucony launches the tenth generation of the award-winning Kinvara−and it’s as groundbreaking as the first. To celebrate a decade of lightweight innovation, Saucony is offering a limited-edition Kinvara 10 featuring the shoe’s original iconic design and colorways. Kinvara: The Beginning In the fall of 2008, seven-time Ironman champion and Saucony athlete Linsey Corbin met with Chris Mahoney, Saucony’s vice president of design, to collaborate on the perfect long-distance race shoe for the Ironman Triathlon. It would have to defy industry norms, blurring boundaries between responsiveness and stability, enabling Corbin to fly through the Ironman’s 42km marathon following the event’s leg-burning 180km bike stage. “Chris asked me what my dream race shoe would be,” said Corbin. “As an Ironman athlete, I wanted something with a bit more substance than a super-light racing flat, but I also didn't want something as bulky as the trainers I had been running in. It was a big ask, challenging the brand’s design, engineering, and technology teams to completely reimagine what a running shoe should be.” “Through extensive testing and feedback with Linsey and our other elite athletes, we identified a desire for a more simplified running experience,” said Mahoney. “Those insights led to the creation of the Kinvara, debuting a 4mm offset to the market and highlighting the importance of underfoot geometry to the foot/shoe relationship.” A year later during race week at the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii, Saucony delivered a neon- orange pair of the Kinvaras to Corbin. “I tried them on and took them for a short run,” said Corbin. “They felt light and fresh on my feet; I knew I had to race in them. Forever engrained in my memory is the last two miles of the race where I was sprinting down Palani Hill for the final podium position. Each time I put on a new iteration of the Kinvara, I remember the exhilaration of that moment.” “In an industry where running styles come and go, to see the Kinvara hit a milestone like this is awesome,” added Mahoney. “To have grown such a loyal fan base throughout the past decade shows how all the enduring elements of the Kinvara still resonate with so many runners. We’re so appreciative of the influence the Kinvara has had on the brand and look forward to the generations to come.” Kinvara: Product Philosophy “With the very first Kinvara, our product team embraced an exciting new design identity coupled with advanced running dynamics,” said Anne Cavassa, president of Saucony. “They imagined a shoe where benchmark responsiveness and lightweight stability were not separate entities, but were seamlessly integrated, transforming the way the foot moved through the gait cycle. The Kinvara continues to represent our innovative and ongoing product philosophy across the brand, focusing on every aspect of the runner’s stride. Now, as the Kinvara evolves once again, we look forward to further pushing the boundaries of innovation as we shape the next generation of performance footwear for runners everywhere.” The All-New Kinvara 10 Featuring an EVERUN™ topsole and a flexible EVA+ midsole for a smooth, incredibly energetic ride, the Kinvara 10, with a 4mm offset, is as supportive as it is breathable thanks to an engineered mesh upper. Internal heel pods, a nod to the original Kinvara model, comfortably lock the foot down as the runner’s pace ramps up. Because no two feet are alike, enhancements to the Kinvara 10 include Saucony’s newest fit technology, FORMFIT™, a 3D-contoured footbed that cradles the foot with three layers of foam for enhanced adaptability and impact absorption. Kinvara 10: Availability The special-edition Kinvara in white red colorway is packaged in a commemorative box and comes with a free special edition Saucony shirt. It’s available for pre-order for P5,495 at the Saucony stores in Glorietta 3 and Trinoma. The Kinvara 10 collection retails at P5,295 and will be available in-store and at saucony.com.ph on February 20, 2019. The Kinvara 10 will be available in men’s sizes 7-12 and in women’s sizes 5-9.

Murray helps Nuggets hold off Spurs 102-99

By Pat Graham, Associated Press DENVER (AP) — Jamal Murray scored 31 points, Monte Morris hit two big free throws with 7.2 seconds remaining and the Denver Nuggets held off the San Antonio Spurs 102-99 on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time) to extend their home winning streak to eight. Nikola Jokic added 21 points, nine rebounds and nine assists before fouling out as the Nuggets nearly squandered an 18-point, first-half lead. Bryn Forbes had a three-point look to tie the game in the final second but couldn't get it launched in time over Trey Lyles. San Antonio, the top free throw shooting team in the league, went 4-of-8 from the line over the final 1:48. LaMarcus Aldridge finished with 24 points. It was the second game of a home-and-home between the teams. The Spurs won 111-103 in San Antonio on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). The Nuggets remain percentage points ahead of Golden State for the top mark in the Western Conference despite missing starters Paul Millsap, Will Barton and Gary Harris due to injuries. Murray came up big before turning his right ankle in the fourth quarter. He was hobbling the rest of the game. Malik Beasley had 21 points, but also rolled his left ankle on a drive in the fourth quarter. He made two free throws before exiting. Jokic drew a crowd, but kept finding the open player. He fouled out with 1:33 left. DeMar DeRozan added 15 points. DeRozan and Aldridge combined for 57 points in the win Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). The Spurs turned up the defense in the second half to climb back into the game. Trailing 100-98 with 28 seconds remaining, Derrick White made one of two free throws. Morris then was fouled on a drive to the basket and made both. TIP-INS Spurs: F/C Pau Gasol (right foot) made the trip with the team and is getting closer to a return. ... Coach Gregg Popovich called a timeout just 46 seconds into the game. Nuggets: Harris (right hip) and Millsap (fractured right big toe) are nearing a return. BORROWED PHILOSOPHY Coach Michael Malone and the Nuggets are borrowing a page straight out of the Spurs' playbook with this philosophy: Don't hold onto the ball. Malone wants his players to make a decision within a half-second. "If you're open, shoot it. If you're not open, get off the ball with a 0.5 (second) mentality," Malone explained. "That makes you and us as a team really hard to guard. Because the ball is going to move a hell of a lot quicker than the defense can." HOMECOMING White grew up in the area and played a season at the University of Colorado. He's gone from sporadically playing for the Spurs last season — he also helped the Austin Spurs win the 2018 G League championship — to becoming their starting guard. "He's just a young man who's gaining confidence day by day," Popovich said. "Just believing he belongs is really the important thing for him." UP NEXT Spurs: Play in Los Angeles against the Clippers on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Nuggets: At Phoenix on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). The Nuggets are 3-0 this season in the second game of a back-to-back this season......»»

Bersamin shares two-pronged approach to solving issues

When it comes to issues on the environment and human rights, newly appointed Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin said he is more of a judicial activist. But in matters concerning the executive and legislative branches of government, his philosophy leans more on judicial restraint. Judicial activism and judicial restraint are two opposite approaches in the judiciary. Judicial activism is the interpretation of the constitution or the laws to advocate certain values and conditions. The court exercises its power to correct injustices and formulate policies that will protect individual rights.

Cora gets new deal from Red Sox through 2021 season

By Kyle Hightower, Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — Alex Cora brought a new voice and culture to the Boston Red Sox that helped propel them to their latest World Series title. The Red Sox rewarded him for bringing home a championship in his first year with the team by giving him a new contract with an additional guaranteed year through the 2021 season. The deal containing the extension was announced Wednesday by Boston also includes a club option for 2022. In his rookie season as a major league manager, Cora guided the Red Sox to a franchise-record 108 victories and the team’s fourth championship in 15 seasons. He finished second in the AL Manager of the Year voting announced Tuesday. “We have consistently been impressed by Alex at every turn,” Red Sox chairman Tom Werner said in a statement. “His knowledge of the game, ability to connect with our players, and his incredible instincts and decisiveness led us to an historic championship season. We know we are in good hands and could not be more pleased to know he will be with us for the foreseeable future.” Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski was in search of new direction for the club when he fired former manager John Farrell after back-to-back Al Division Series losses in 2016 and 2017. After the historic regular season, Cora then steered Boston past the 100-win Yankees and Astros in the AL playoffs before downing the Dodgers in the World Series. “For me, 2018 was not only historic, but it was special as well, both on and off the field,” Cora said in a statement. “We have a great appreciation for our accomplishments this past year, but now our focus moves forward to the season ahead and defending our World Series title.” During Boston’s run Cora got the best out his young talent, led by AL MVP favorite Mookie Betts. They shined in player-centric approach in which Cora encouraged an aggressive hitting mentality, lots of hit-and-runs and active running of the bases. Cora also the most out of his pitching staff, which included clutch performances in the postseason by Chris Sale and David Price. Neither pitcher had logged a playoff victory as a starter prior to this season. Price had a tough time acclimating to Boston’s rugged sports environment during his first two seasons of the seven-year, $217 million deal he signed in 2015. He’s found a groove late in the season, pitching the clinching Game 5 of the ALCS to help the Red Sox advance. “Just his demeanor. It doesn’t change,” Price said last month. “I know it’s easy to not change when your team wins 108 games in the regular season. But he hasn’t changed one bit.” A member of the Red Sox’s 2007 World Series title team as a player, Cora was the bench coach on Houston’s 2017 championship team. He learned from manager A.J. Hinch that being close to players would be beneficial. “Talking to players is not bad, having a relationship with players is not bad,” Cora said in describing his managerial philosophy. “Doing that, you’re going to get the best out of them. People may think that crossing that line is not helpful, but I see it the other way around, and I lived it.” Cora became the first manager from Puerto to guide a team to a championship. It came more than a year after Hurricane Maria devastated island, prompting Cora during initial contract negotiations last October to ask the Red Sox to help his people with relief efforts. Ownership responded by sending a chartered plane full of supplies. Days after winning the World Series, they again obliged Cora’s request to take the trophy to his hometown of Caguas, Puerto Rico......»»

UAAP: Yet again, Ateneo shows off its enviable depth with Tyler Tio

Matt Nieto sat out for Ateneo de Manila University due to a fever up against the University of the Philippines on Sunday.  For any other team, losing its lead guard would have been a big blow.  The Blue Eagles, however, only soldiered on. “Luckily for us, guys stepped up just like Tyler [Tio]. Ang laking tulong niya lalo nang nawala si Matt,” Thirdy Ravena told reporters post-game.  Indeed, starting in place of Nieto, Tio turned in his best performance of the season with 12 points and five assists – almost matching his season totals of 13 points and five assists before the game.  For the second-year stud, he was only staying true to Ateneo’s identity. “We have a philosophy in the team na ‘next man up’ so when Matt went down, obviously, we were hurt because he’s one of our better players, one of our leaders,” he said.  He then continued, “So the captains and the coaches talked to us point guards and told us we really need to step up.”  Tio did just that, holding down the for the Blue Eagles and helping them get back on track.  Still staying true to their identity, though, he also deflected the credit to his fellow guards in SJ Belangel, Jolo Mendoza, and Adrian Wong. As he put it, “I give props also to Jolo, SJ, and Adrian. It wasn’t just me who stepped up so we just wanted to fill the void left by Matt.”  ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: NLEX still clinging to flicker of hope remaining

With a 2-7 record, the NLEX Road Warriors' playoff hopes are getting slimmer by the minute. However, for coach Yeng Guiao, NLEX will still be trying to hold on to a 'flicker of hope remaining,' if they could win their remaining games against San Miguel and Magnolia, and hope for the best to force a tie at the bottom of the playoff picture. The 11th-seeded NLEX were able to make things interesting in the third quarter, taking a four-point lead briefly against the top-seeded Aces before collapsing in the final quarter. Even though they were not able to last against the Aces, Guiao commended his wards for making the game competitive up until the buzzer, a trait he wants to see the rest of the way. "If we're not lucky enough to make the playoffs this conference we’ll play as hard as we can the last two games and we’ll consider that as preparation for the  next conference...Baka may ano pa, baka-maka-tie ka pa. Meron ka pang playoffs ano? There's still a ficker of hope remaining, so we will hang to that." The six-time PBA champion coach was impressed with Mac Tallo's NLEX debut, who contributed 11 points, 3 assists, 3 steals, and 2 two blocks in his first game in six months, recovering from latent tuberculosis. He also let go of Tallo's blunders, who gave away the ball four times, but he vows to give a strong piece of his mind in the following games. "We have to demand something better out of his judgment, out of his decision-making, I think that will happen ano? Because MVP to sa Cebu, he's a go-to-guy, he can score, he can pass, he's a creator no for the team. And that's exactly what we need even without Kiefer and Kevin." As another project seen by the longtime coach, Guiao sees a combination of former Red Bull guard and Cebu teammate Jimwell Torion and the body structure of former league MVP Willie Miller. "He’s a strong point guard who can withstand a physical game," he said of the comparison for the first-round pick in the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft. Despite trying to fill the shoes of the backcourt of Kiefer Ravena and Kevin Alas, the NLEX mentor is not putting expectations for Tallo, already entrusting him with almost 20 minutes of playing time. "Wala akong pressure sa kaniya. I just want his natural game to develop, I just want him to be able to grasp the system of the team and the philosophy. Kaya binabad ko na siya today." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»
