PUMA South Africa and Glenrose Xaba have signed a partnership that will see the sports brand supplying the multiple national champion with technical running product including apparel, accessories and footwear to carry her through to the next Olympics.
With versatility to match her level of excellence, Xaba is a multiple national champion with titles in 10km cross-country, 10km road running and 10 000m on the track, as well as at the half-marathon distance. Her half-marathon time of 69:44 places her third on the all-time South African list and she is determined to better Elana Meyer’s national record of 66:44 in the 21km event.
“Signing a star like Glenrose is the obvious next step in confirming PUMA’s commitment to distance running which has seen the brand unveil the new NITRO range of technical running shoes to fit the needs of all runners,” said Brett Bellinger, Marketing Director of PUMA South Africa. “We look forward to seeing Glenrose excel in the shoes and realise her goals of winning even more national titles, breaking a national record and securing a spot in the next Olympics.”
