Nike Vision Helps Top Contenders in World Championship

The 13th IAAF World Athletics Championship competition held in Daegu, Korea featured many top contenders sporting Nike Vision eyewear. Since opening day on August 27, the world’s best track and field athletes recorded notable finishes in events ranging from the 100-meter dash to pole vault, proving that Nike Vision’s frames offer optimal stability and durability for the elite athlete. Frame features such as the secure-wrap temple arms with rubber grip and adjustable ventilated rubber nose bridge ensure the performance eyewear securely stays in place without compromising comfort.

Athletes such as Walter Dix, who grabbed the World Championship silver medal in the 100-meter dash Sunday morning , is just one of the many athletes who find Nike Vision eyewear a must-have in their duffel bag. Another American favorite and two-time Olympic gold-medalist—Angelo Taylor, competed in the 400m hurdle finals sporting the popular branded eyewear.

Daichi Sawano, 2008’s 10th place finisher in pole vault, found depth perception and lighting to be no obstacle wearing his Nike Vision Nike Show X-1’s. Sawano’s success put him in the finals during day three of competition. And to prove Nike’s eyewear stands up to any athletic test, Pascal Behrenbruch, contender for the men’s decathlon crown, was photographed wearing them in more than one of his 10 events.

More and more, spectators are noticing Nike Vision eyewear on the faces of their favorite athletes. Not only do the sport-based frames appeal to those looking to maximize their performance, but they also attract those choosing to be equally fashionable. Darya Klishina, the fashion-forward trend setter and Russian long jumper, prefers her Nike Vision Vomero sunglasses during competition. Vomero is just one of many styles in Nike Vision’s Lifestyle category that truly performs as well as it looks.
