More than 250 Canadian athletes are preparing to compete at the Commonwealth Games taking place in Delhi, India from October 3 to 14.  This year, Canadian competitors will have an edge over the competition as Crocs Canada has partnered with Commonwealth Games Canada (CGC) to provide Canadian athletes with innovative footwear designed to help with post-competition recovery.

Crocs’ Prepair™ Collection delivers biomechanical benefits in comfort, health and recovery, including notable reduction in peak muscular effort and peak pressures that relieve strain on the musculoskeletal system.

“This shoe has been market-tested with athletes who’ve confirmed good results for training and performance recovery,” said Scott Stevenson, CGC Director of Sport. “When we heard about the Prepair products, we jumped on the opportunity to partner with Crocs Canada.  Providing this quality footwear for Canadian athletes is one more way in which we can contribute to best-ever performances at the Games.”

“We are thrilled to support Canadian athletes competing in the 2010 Commonwealth Games,” said Andrew Nichols, Director, Marketing & Strategic Sales of Crocs Canada. “Athletes have long been wearing Crocs shoes for their superior function and comfort. The Prepair Collection was designed specifically with those athletes in mind, and is sure to become the premier choice for anyone looking for recovery footwear.”
