2011 起跑
 

2010 对720armour 来说是个成果丰硕的一年:不仅有更多来自世界各地的朋友可以享受720armour 优质的产品,也又更多优秀的选手加入了720 团队。透过720 团队每一份子的努力,成功的传达了720armour 的品牌精神:The World, My World!这个世界由我们的眼界、态度与意念所形塑而成。

720armour 非常感谢Samantha 的加入。这位年轻的超跑选手刚结束极地长征赛事的最后一站-南极洲。Samantha 在此站中获得她个人最佳成绩:年龄分组21-29 第一、女性选手第三、全部选手第十(共有53 选手完成此站比赛)。

在南极洲站比赛结束之后,Samantha 前往纽约进行训练。在问及对“极地长征”比赛的心得,Samantha 分享了她的经历、目标与热情。为能忠实传达Samantha 的感想,兹将全文载于下方:



 Samantha 在纽约进行训练

--

Antarctica was such a thrilling experience and I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to visit such a beautiful and untouched area of the globe. The race was unlike the other races in the RacingthePlanet series as the start times and the distances we covered were determined by the environment. On the second day of the race we were only able to cover 9kms as a brewing blizzard forced competitors to quickly return to the boat. Other days we would wake up at 3am to start racing but had to hold off until noon because the weather conditions didn't allow us to go onto shore. The qualities of patience and flexibility were crucial in allowing me to achieve my goal in becoming the first women and youngest person to complete the Four Desert Series in one year. The race for first, second and third place female were under contention and incredibly close throughout the whole race. Diana (Ireland) and Mirijana (Croatia) and myself were in a constant yet incredibly friendly battle which pushed each of us to race harder and faster. In the end we crossed the final stage hand in hand and I felt privileged to race with two very experienced endurance runners and lovely females.
 
The Last Desert was the final race in the RacingthePlanet series and on paper my most successful race as I placed in the top ten of the field. This mammoth year of racing has been incredibly intense but the most rewarding year and I thank 720armour for the ongoing support throughout every race and during training. I am a big fan of 720's Yoyo glasses and strongly recommend them to any one with a narrow face who wants an ultra lightweight yet durable and highly protective eyewear.
 
2011 looks to be a big year of racing as I embark on my first 100mile race in New Zealand (The Northburn), the NorthFace 100km race in the Blue Mountains in Sydney, the New York Marathon and a 250km race in Nepal. -- by Samanth Gash in New York City

(中文翻译:
南极的比赛对我而言是一次极为振奋的经验,我也觉得相当地幸运能有这个机会,一访这美丽而人烟罕至的净土。这回的比赛不同于“极地长征”前三场赛事,因为当下环境气候决定了我们比赛出发的时间与距离;例如说,第二天的比赛,我们只跑了九公里就被迫返回运载所有比赛人员的船上,因为当时吹起了宛如利刃的寒风。又如说,所有跑者跟工作人员需要在凌晨三点起床,但因为气候影响须等到了中午十二点才能靠岸进行比赛。耐心与对环境的适应能力在“极地长征”比赛上,成为致胜的关键能力,也因为这样的能力,我完成了我的目标:成为第一位女性选手同时也是最年轻的选手在壹年之内完成“极地长征”四项比赛。女性选手前三名(爱尔兰的Diana、克罗埃西亚的Mirijana、还有我)在南极洲的赛程里维持的一种亦敌亦友的关系,比赛总是竞争激烈,但我们也培养出紧密和谐的情感,这样的连结让我们跑得更努力更快。甚至在最后到达终点时,我们是手牵手一起完成比赛。能与这两位深富经验与美丽的女跑者一起比赛,我深感光荣。

南极站的比赛是“极地长征”的最后一站,比赛成绩也是我在这系列比赛中最好的一站(第一次晋身前十名)。在2010 年里,除了“极地长征”、我也参予了其他的赛事,对我来说,2010 真的是很充实的一年。我感谢720armour 在比赛与训练中所提供的持续的支持。我个人非常喜欢720 的Yoyo 镜款,乐意推荐给那些跟我一样有一张小脸的人,同时也想要佩戴一副既轻巧、又强韧、并具保护性的眼镜。

2011 年对我也将是份量十足的一年。目前已计划参予的比赛包括:在纽西兰的100 公里比赛、在雪梨由NorthFace 举办的100 公里比赛、知名的纽约马拉松,以及在尼泊尔举办的250 公里赛跑。 -- Samantha Gash 写于纽约)
