ASICS America Welcomes Jordan Borroughs To The Team!

By ASICS America

Official Press Release Here!

11/23/11

ASICS America is pleased to announce the signing of American World Champion freestyle wrestler Jordan Burroughs. Most recently, Burroughs earned Gold at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico at 74 kilograms (163 pounds).

Burroughs, 23, has been on a winning streak of late, with five consecutive wins including the 2011 World Wrestling Championships in Istanbul, Turkey in September and the U.S. World Team Trials in Oklahoma City in June. He is the first U.S. World champion in men's freestyle wrestling since 2006.

Originally from Sicklerville, N.J., Burroughs began to excel in wrestling while at Winslow Township High School. He went on to wrestle for the University of Nebraska, where he continued to build momentum, earning three Big 12 Titles (2008, 2009, 2011) and two NCAA Div. I National Championships (2009, 2011).

Burroughs' next big challenge will the the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Iowa City on April 21-22, where he hopes to garner a spot at the 2012 London Games.

"We are honored to add Jordan to our exceptional roster of ASICS athletes," says ASICS Vice President of Marketing Erik Forsell. "He is young, dynamic and hungry for success. As a role model for younger wrestlers and an ambassador for the sport of wrestling, we expect Jordan to have a bright future."

Burroughs joins 2004 Olympic Gold Medal Wrestler Cael Sanderson on the ASICS team. Sanderson, who recently returned from retirement to win the U.S. World Team Trials at 84 kg (185 lbs.), was undefeated (159-0) during four years of collegiate wrestling at Iowa State. He will also vie for a spot in the 2012 London Games.

Additional ASICS wrestlers include: Jake Herbert (84 kg/185 lbs.), Jake Varner (96 kg/211.5 lbs.), Tervel Dlagnev (120 kg/264.5 lbs.) and Helen Maroulis (55 kg/21 lbs.)

RESILITE & TW Promotions Sponsor The 2011 NYS Section 1, 8, 9 & 11 Wrestling Championships

Help support your 2011 Sectional Wrestling Championships and
purchase a RESILITE Tournament Mat today!!!

Athletic Directors and Coaches,

2011 Sectional Tournament Mat Sponsorship

As many of you know RESILITE Sports Products, and TW Promotions, Inc. have worked together with the Coaches and Athletic Directors of Section 1, 8, 9 and 11 providing various scholarships for the young wrestlers in your Sections. Throughout this time it has been an absolute pleasure to work side by side with all of the Athletic Directors and Coaches involved. This year we would like to extend our reach as sponsors and provide all of the wrestling mats for your Section Tournaments. As the mat sponsors we take it as our responsibility to provide the highest quality mats available. Last year we sponsored the Section 8 and 11 tournaments and as you can see in the flyer to the right the venues were absolutely beautiful. This was the first time in both of the tournaments history the mats did not need to be borrowed from high schools all over the county and transported to the tournament sites. As you can imagine this saved everyone involved a lot of time and effort. RESILITE Sports Products made this possible by delivering all of the mats directly to the tournament free of charge. During last years tournaments several athletic directors and coaches approached us about purchasing the mats, however we did not have the proper system in place to make them available. This year we are running a Tournament Mat Special and all of the mats will be available for sale prior to the tournament at deeply discounted prices. Please take a few moments to view the flyer to the right and consider purchasing a discounted wrestling mat today! If you contact us as soon as possible we can have the mats custom made to match your school's colors. Thank you for granting us this opportunity, we look forward to the ongoing relationship between TW Promotions, Inc. and the Athletic Directors and Coaches of  New York State wrestling!

Sincerely,

John Cummings

Road trip to RESILITE

My partner & President / CFO Nick Gallo, National Sales Manager John Cummings and I headed out on a road trip to the RESILITE factory in Northumberland, PA on Tuesday morning, October 26th.  Nick and I last visited here 6 years ago with the same intention of better understanding the company and renewing friendships we"ve maintained since the late 1970"s.  John had never visited RESILITE before and, as he"s been with TW Promotions, Inc. just 3 years, it was important that he join Nick & I to continue his development as a key employee of TW Promotions, Inc.

RESILITE is a very unique company in today"s globalized economic environment. Every product they manufacture and distribute is made in America by American workers.  Their 60 employees have been with RESILITE an average of 15 years, some more than 40!.  With so much of our country"s labor and manufacturing being outsourced oversea"s now, it"s rare to find a company with an experienced local workforce dedicated and committed to excellence like this in the USA anymore. How lucky we"ve been to represent their unique product line in the NY Metro area for so many years!

Our tour began in the graphic design office of Mr. Travis Green.  Travis creates all of the wonderful graphics depicting what your mats and wall padding will look like prior to manufacturing.  Once he"s done, and the design has your approval, it moves along with your school purchase order to the Order Entry Department overseen by Mrs. Miriam Stahl.  Miriam began in 1965 as founder Warren Tischler"s secretary and is still going strong. The paperwork is processed inside RESILITE"s sophisticated software system and then moves forward to the Shipping Department headed by Mr. Gene Strohecker. Shipping department? Before even being manufactured?  Yes, that"s because manufacturing is coordinated to line up with the shipping schedule, as the vast majority of RESILITE"s product line is delivered in their own trucks by their own employees, greatly lessening the likelihood your mat might be damaged. Next we moved on to Ms. Jenn Gilbert, the Production Supervisor who schedules the assembly times and spray room dates for the creation of your new mats. This whole process generally takes 4-8 weeks [including delivery] depending on the time of year your order is placed.

A very satisfying aspect of working with a company like this is their willingness to take on difficult and challenging jobs.  You just don"t see that effort being made by other companies in this industry. They can accomplish this because of an ongoing and consistent reinvestment in the latest technology and in the continued retraining of their workers. There is no better example of this than in the Gymnastic Product Division headed by Mr. Mark Kessler.  Mark collected his staff and allowed us the opportunity to introduce ourselves as we"ve been known to push the limits of their creativity with our unusual requests!  We then toured their manufacturing area which is shown and identified in the photos below.  Please note that you are looking at state of the art equipment which in some cases is designed, manufactured and used exclusively by RESILITE.  This is to insure customer satisfaction (Job #1!) and expedite a quality controlled manufacturing process.

We wrapped up our visit on Wednesday, October 27th with a luncheon and golf outing at the beautiful Hemlock Links Golf Course under sunny sky"s and 70 temperatures. This was a perfect ending of a highly successful visit with our long time friends at RESILITE Sports Products, Inc.

2010 World Championships, Moscow, Russia

2010 World Championships, Moscow, Russia (picture by Jay Hammond compliments of Amatuer Wrestling News)

A well run tournament by the Russians, but I feel that this tournament could be run in 3 days with more mats and fans. The number of spectators during the week was low. Greco and Women's Freestyle drew little fans. It may have been because of work and time. The event takes all day just for a few weight classes. They run the weight class from beginning to the eventual Gold Medal match each day.

Team USA didn't wrestle well and out of all the styles only Women's Freestyle came away with 2 medals. Both wore ASICS.

Team Canada had pretty much the same story and in Womens Freestyle came away with 3 medals, 1 Bronze, 1 Silver and 1 Gold.

The real bright side of the tournament was that the presence of ASICS was huge. Because of ASICS Corporation's agreement with FILA, large banners and 2 working booths were at the event, which made it evident that ASICS is a big part of Global Wrestling. The teams that were wearing ASICS uniforms were, Russia, USA, Japan, Canada, Italy, Bulgaria, Hungary, Switzerland, Mongolia, Belarus, and many of the countries also wore ASICS shoes which had been wearing adidas in the past. USA Wrestling and Canada were very happy with the quality and look of their singlets and warmups.

The buzz was all about ASICS and even though the USA didn't win many medals, ASICS grabbed a lions share.

We now have the best wrestlers in the world wearing ASICS products. The Russians. Out of 21 possible chances to win a medal, Russia won 16. That is amazing. Almost half of them were Gold.

Overall a tough tournament for the USA, Canada. USAW is trying to find answers about what they have to do to get more medals. Not an easy task. We wrestle a different style, but we have to learn how to wrestle by the FILA International rules better. Hopefully before the London Olympics.
