KELLY HANDEL WILLIAMSON SIGNS WITH ZOOT

January 26th, 2011 - Posted by zoot

Zoot is proud to announce the re-signing of Kelly Handel Williamson of Austin Texas for another 2 years. Kelly will be racing in Zoot “Head To Toe” across the country competing in various triathlons with 70.3 distance being her main focus and Kona the ultimate goal.

Kelly was raised in Zionsville, Indiana where she began competitive sports and swimming on a team at an early age. She continued to swim through University of Illinois on a swim scholarship, studied Kinesiology and later discovered running and cycling. Kelly started her partnership with Zoot in 2006 by joining the ULTRA TEAM and has been with Zoot ever since. She now resides in Austin with her husband Derick and has been stepping up her game every year by huge leaps. Last year she placed 1st at Steelhead 70.3 and 1st at Branson 70.3, placed 3rd at Ironman Coeur d’Alene and in her first Kona attempt placed 15th.

Kelly’s shoe for 2011 will be the TT 4.0 and prefers the Kapilani for run races. “The Ultra TT’s are perfect for anything from a 5k distance to half marathon. They are quick to put on, supportive and comfortable yet also light and responsive. Just slipping them on, I feel like my feet are ready to run fast.” She will also be swimming in the new “Prophet” as well as training in the rest of Zoot gear.

Zoot Sports is a leading manufacturer of authentic race day triathlon apparel, footwear and wetsuits, pioneering innovative product solutions that cover the athlete from start to finish – head to toe.

Check out some of Kelly’s favorite Zoot gear!

Zoot Pulse Capri
“They are comfortable, versatile and stylish. I could live in them!”
Ultra Kapilani Shoes
“I have done both my Ironman’s in these shoes. They feel like slippers, but perform like a solid, lightweight racing shoe without feeling bulky.”

CompressRX Active Recovery Socks
“The heavier my training, the more these live on my feet. They’re thrown on immediately after a workout, always when traveling to races, when sitting for extended periods of time, and frequently just anytime my legs feel ‘heavy’.”

Zoot Signs ITU Triathlon World Champion Javier Gómez Noya

January 10, 2011, Seattle (WA), USA

Zoot Sports is proud to announce the addition of ITU Triathlon World Champion Javier Gómez Noya to

its stable of professional athletes. “Javi”, as he is better known, will train and compete in Zoot footwear

and wetsuits for the next two seasons, with his ultimate sights on the London Summer Games in 2012.

No stranger to the Zoot brand, Javi joining the Zoot tribe comes as no surprise, “it’s a real honor to be

part of the team and I’m very excited to work closely with the developers and to compete in Zoot”.

Javi made his debut to the world of triathlon when he turned pro at age 15 in 2002. Since then, Javi has

consistently been among the top athletes in the world and boasts an impressive collection of titles. For

the next two years, Javi’s focus will be on retaining his 2010 ITU World Championship Title, in addition

to qualifying for the 2012 Summer Games in London, which is the only big title he has yet to triumph.

For Javi, like most endurance athletes, beating rivals is paramount. Javi’s race shoe for 2011/12 is

Zoot’s Ultra Race 3.0. The 3.0 is cleaner, lighter and faster; offering a better fit and ultimately providing

athletes with that all important competitive edge. Equipped with a Quick Entry System and BareFit™

Technology, the Ultra Race 3.0 allows flawlessly fast transitions, when it matters most: on race day.

Javi agrees, “every second you can gain in the transition is so important. Not only is it faster, it’s

easier!” Being a former swimmer, Javi looks for flexibility, freedom of movement and flotation in his

wetsuit. Zoot’s “The Prophet” gets high marks on all accounts, making this Javi’s perfect choice of

wetsuit for 2011/12.
