WIN: Arishita’s Famous Trainers Up For Grabs

Super League are giving you the chance to win a truly unique piece of triathlon history.

Michael Arishita was the talk of the triathlon world when he became the first athlete to attempt to swim with his shoes on.

The American was so desperate to try and avoid elimination in his Semi-Final at Super League Malta that he decided not to bother taking his trainers off in transition between his first run and second swim in the Enduro format.

He dived into the water wearing his trainers, only to then discover it wasn’t that easy to swim in them so then flipped onto his back, removed them and stuffed them down the front of his tri-suit.

That proved to be even worse and Arishita’s smile afterwards said it all.

Arishita has found himself the centre of attention after his remarkable feat in Malta and has been asked about those trainers time and again.

Thanks to Super League he is giving you the chance to win the trainers he swam in, and is even signing them too, giving one triathlon fan the opportunity to bag a truly unique piece of memorabilia.

To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is video yourself swimming in your trainers. Think you can do a better job than Arishita? Prove it. Will you find it even harder?
