US Ironman Champion Chris Lieto Challenges Top Athletes and Fans to Unite To Improve the Lives of Children by doing ‘More Than Sport’.
Lieto Hosts ‘More Than Sport’ Breakfast Gala, October 10th, Royal Kona Resort, 9 a.m.
KONA, HAWAII (September 23, 2010) – Chris Lieto is the fastest American
Ironman and a true icon in the world of tri-athletes. Since entering the
sport in 1997, the California native has completed more than 80
triathlons, secured three Ironman wins, and with three top-10 finishes
at the Ironman World Championship under his belt, Lieto is favored to
take home the gold at this year’s October 9th Ford Ironman World
Championship in Kona, Hawaii.
More than Sport: Although Chris Lieto has his eye on first place; he is
racing for more than himself. Through his More Than Sport campaign
powered by humanitarian organization, World Vision, Lieto challenges
fellow athletes and fans to be ambassadors of positive change in the
lives of children in need around the world through child sponsorship.
Lieto’s ultimate goal is to find a World Vision child sponsor for each
of the 141 miles he completes during the upcoming World Championship.
On Sunday, October 10th, Lieto invites fellow athletes, race sponsors,
child sponsors, friends and family to a Breakfast Gala celebrating the
impact of More than Sport.
Breakfast Gala Event Details:
· Who: Friends, family, fans and competitors are all invited
· When: October 10th at 9:00 a.m.
· Where: Royal Kona Resort, ‘Coconut Grove’ (75-5852 alii drive Kailua
Kona, HI 96740)
· The first 100 people to RSVP for this event will receive a gift bag
from Lieto’s major sponsors including Trek, Sram, KSwiss and more.
· Sponsor a child or make a donation and have the opportunity to
receive top-rate bike gear from Lito’s sponsors.
· After the event, guests are invited to help assemble 141 backpacks
and supplies, sponsored by Ford, to be distributed to children
throughout Kona school districts.
Please RSVP at: www.morethansport.org/KonaCelebration.

Somino Running Shoes will be at Kona Demo Days Expo!
They will be running free computerized gait analysis at the expo as well as demoing our shoes. They are challenging both athletes and spectators to have their gait analyzed in their current running or racing shoes and perform the same analysis in a pair of our shoes that are customized to their exact biomechanical needs. With their system of customization, athletes can actually build a left shoe that is different from the right (and vice versa) to truly tune into their individual needs.
How cool is THAT?
The idea is very similar to that of custom bike fittings: improved alignment=increased performance. With correct alignment, the body uses less energy to self-correct, which leads to more effort efficient running and faster races.
Stop by their booth and sneak peak at their full 2011 line.
