In 2022, the ground-breaking technology fuelling the ADIZERO franchise helped elite athletes and ambitious runners to dominate races on the road and the track alike.
With 10 World Championship titles secured, two broken world records and 50% of all World Major Marathons won, the ADIZERO franchise topped the podiums.
Alberto Uncini Manganelli, General Manager / Senior Vice President Running & Credibility Sports at adidas, said: “2022 was an unprecedented year for the Adizero franchise and our athletes. But we never stop, we always believe that we can push ourselves further to develop the best products for our athletes by working alongside them and our ambitious running community and tapping into the latest innovation and technology. That is why, with the first world major marathon on the horizon, we are confident that 2023 will be no different to last year – adizero will be the most winning franchise again.”
This prediction is off to a great start with Abdesa Tola Adera and Tamirat Tola storming to victory in the Dubai marathon last month wearing the ADIZERO Adios Pro 3.
