The Prizes:

The top three entries will all receive prizes.


1st Place – Active run shirt from 2XU 


2nd Place – Compression socks from 2XU


Compression socks are a great way to recover from workouts. And if you aren’t a gym-goer, they make flying/travelling much more comfortable. I wrote about the benefits of compression gear a few months ago here.


The main benefits of compression sportswear is that it keeps the muscles warm to prevent muscle strain and fatigue, and wick sweat away from the body to prevent chafing and rashes. In addition, there is some evidence that compression shorts may enhance athletic performance.[1] Compression sportswear also helps to keep undergarments in place, and for certain sports, like baseball and softball, come with padding at the hips to protect players from injuries due to sliding.


› Active wear – Warming up, training and racing
› Recovery – Post workout
› Travel - Prevention of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and pooling of blood in feet
› Sleeping – Increases circulation for improved muscle repair and faster recovery
› At altitude to help combat less oxygen - Training / recovery / sleeping
› Rehabilitation from injury or surgery


3rd Place – Fantasy hockey team audit from yours truly (either posted on DobberHockey or via e-mail if you don’t want your competitors reading it).
