SLS3 will have a significant presence at the Silicon Valley Sprint and International Triathlon. SLS3 will be the exclusive triathlon apparel brand available for purchase at each event’s Health and Fitness Expo, and SLS3 will be featured prominently at the start and finish lines.
Participating athletes will have the chance to win SLS3 triathlon gear and see the latest in compression socks and race apparel technology.
''Having the right technical gear and during Triathlon race is crucial to any athlete. SLS3 has made apparel with athletes in mind and they have proven themselves once again with the new FX line.''

This is how you win the USA 1 mile Championship

Just five days after his teammates swept the medal stand at the US 25K Championships, Jordan Horn (in blue on the right in the photo below) wins the Bronze Medal at the US 1 Mile National Championships in Minneapolis, MN. For Horn, this is his best ever finish at a US Championships and continues a breakthrough 2010, having already run under four minutes in the mile (3:58) this winter. His breakthrough performances in 2009 and 2010 have earned him the opportunity to race on the European track circuit this summer.
Horn now returns to the track with two tune-up races as he heads into the US National Track & Field Championships which will be held in late June in Iowa. He'll then head to Europe for a series of races in Belgium.
