This will be followed by the second leg on August 13, where it will showcase Rio’s very own Afroman distance which is a 32Km run, with shorter distances – 21Km, 10Km and 5Km. The 32Km is considered by runners as the ideal race for first-timers who aim to finish their very first full marathon.

The third and final leg will cap the series on October 1 with a full marathon of 42Km that also includes 21Km, 10Km, and 5Km race distances. Runners who complete the highest distance of all 3 races will be honored at the RUNRIO Trilogy Awards Night.

The very first RUNRIO Trilogy was held in 2010 with the primary purpose of providing a progressive running program for those who want to finish a full marathon. This year’s RUNRIO Trilogy, will also feature popular actor and running enthusiast, Dingdong Dantes as the event ambassador.

“We are excited to launch the RUNRIO Trilogy race series because there are many running enthusiasts out there who are looking forward to this event. This year marks the 7th year of RUNRIO Trilogy, whose main objective is to educate runners to train and race progressively,” said award-winning actor Dantes. “Aside from this, part of the proceeds of this year’s race series will go to YesPinoy Foundation to support the organization’s philanthropic works” added Dantes.

RUNRIO will also be launching its new campaign “Heart to Finish”, which is expected to become the participants’ mantra for all RUNRIO races.

“We at RUNRIO understand that people join races not just to run. It’s more because of their desire and passion to be able to finish their 21k, 32k or 42k races with different motivations. We believe that if you run with your heart, anything is possible” said Coach Rio dela Cruz, President of RUNRIO Events, Inc.

One of the highlights of the media launch was the opening of the online registration while onsite registrations will be open starting May 6, 2017, at Adidas Greenbelt 3, Adidas Trinoma, Adidas Solenad 3, Adidas BGC and Toby’s SM MOA.

ONE CHAMPIONSHIP TELEVISION RATINGS SHOW INCREDIBLE GROWTH IN LAST THREE YEARS

IMG-20170425-WA003.jpg

25 April 2017 – Singapore: Over the past three years, ONE Championship, the largest sports media property in Asian history, has seen incredible growth rates in both television viewership and social media engagement — a testament to the rapid rise of the promotion in worldwide households and the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA) as a whole.

In data released by Nielsen, Facebook and Repucom, ONE Championship has shown exponential growth from 2014 to 2017.

The data shows that ONE has come from 352 million social media impressions to 4-billion, marking an increase of over 11 times the previous tally. With the rise of digital and online video, ONE has also catapulted their numbers from 312 thousand to a whopping 314 million. That’s more than a 1,000 times increase.

Established in 2011, ONE’s tireless efforts to bring Asian mixed martial arts to prominence has brought them from viewership in 60 countries to more than 118 countries globally. That’s double the number since 2014.

Furthermore, the annual TV broadcast per country and the peak TV ratings share numbers have increased dramatically based on the data. From an average of just 12-18 hours of TV broadcast in 2014, ONE has increased that number to 100-1800 hours. It has also seen its peak TV ratings share spike to 11-20% from 1-2% just three years ago.

The company has one of the largest engagements on both Facebook and Twitter and in a region where the platforms are still being adopted in some countries, that’s impactful. It has engaged fans online with a steady stream of digital content for the past six years, even partnering with Facebook itself to livestream the preliminary portion of its Pay-Per-View events on the platform.

By partnering with the largest television networks in the region and across the world, ONE Championship has also made sure that its content is readily available. Massive deals with networks like FOX Sports, and the like, has brought ONE Championship’s unique brand of MMA action to a wide audience.

DUARD FOLAYANG RETAINS ONE LIGHTWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WITH UNANIMOUS DECISION OVER EV TING

PLUS: KEVIN BELINGON OBLITERATES TONI TAURU

Eduard Folayang - Ev Ting.jpg

21 April 2017 – Manila, Philippines: The largest sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), sent shockwaves throughout the capacity crowd at the state-of-the-art Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines with another exciting evening of world-class mixed martial arts action. ONE: KINGS OF DESTINY showcased a series of compelling bouts, punctuated by a thrilling main event that left fans on the edge of their seats. In the main event, Eduard Folayang successfully defended his ONE Lightweight World Championship, defeating Ev Ting by unanimous decision.

In the main event of ONE: KINGS OF DESTINY, Eduard Folayang retained his ONE Lightweight World Championship with a masterful display of striking to defeat top Malaysian lightweight Ev “E.T.” Ting. Operating behind his world-class wushu stance, Folayang dazzled with his trademark variety of lightning quick and powerful spinning attacks, pouncing on Ting with side kicks and back fists. Controlling the action from the outside with the intent to counter, Folayang allowed Ting to come forward with his attacks which were few and far between. In the end, all three judges agreed on Folayang winning a unanimous decision to remain champion after five thrilling rounds of intense action.

After the bout, eight-division world Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao congratulated Folayang inside the ONE Championship cage.

“I would like to thank Ev Ting, he really came prepared for this fight. We came to give the fans a good fight, and that’s what we have done,” said Folayang. “This is the essence of martial arts, five rounds to show how much we’ve prepared for a long time. [This fight] means a lot. A lot of you [fans] were discouraged the last time I was here, I slept on that mat. I rose up from my circumstances. I needed to train a lot to improve a lot. This is it on my shoulder. Thank you for your support.”

In the co-main event of the evening, Team Lakay top bantamweight Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon swarmed Finnish kickboxing sensation Toni “Dynamite” Tauru with a relentless barrage of attacks to earn a scintillating striking victory. Tauru, the taller fighter by over 10cm, used his length to keep Belingon at range but it was only a matter of time before the Filipino would come looking for the stoppage. Tauru tried his best to keep the distance, but Belingon launched a furious offensive to close the gap, pounding Tauru with thunderous lefts and rights. In the end, Tauru had no choice but to bow out of the contest via verbal submission.

With another spectacular performance, resurgent lightweight contender and former ONE Featherweight World Champion Honorio “The Rock” Banario marched to victory once more, stopping newcomer Jaroslav Jartim with a monstrous left hook. After spending the first round on the mat with Jartim in technical grappling exchanges, Banario showcased his incredible power in the second round. Catching a kick to the body, Banario uncorked a devastating left hand counter that knocked Jartim out cold, effectively ending the bout in an instant.

It was a triumphant return to the ONE Championship cage for 18-year-old Christian Lee. “The Warrior” turned in a tremendous showing against Chinese featherweight “The Werewolf” Wan Jian Ping, dazzling the crowd with his quickness and trademark unorthodox movement. After mixing up his strikes very well, Lee shot in for a successful takedown, bringing Wan to the canvas. Once on the mat, it was all Christian Lee as the youngster went to work, pounding the Chinese fighter with sharp elbows and punches to earn the stoppage victory.

With an astounding display of gargantuan strength, Team Lakay top flyweight prospect Danny “The King” Kingad out-muscled Malaysian opponent Muhammad Aiman to win by unanimous decision after three fierce back-and-forth rounds. Kingad, who enjoyed most of the fight with successful takedowns of his Malaysian foe, punished Aiman with elbows and knees from dominant positions. In the third round, Aiman caught Kingad in a triangle but the Filipino powered himself out of it and earned the judges’ nod.

In an entertaining flyweight contest, Indonesian standout Stefer Rahardian dominated unorthodox Filipino striker Eugene Toquero with his effective chain wrestling skills, winning by unanimous decision after three rounds of action. For the majority of the bout, Rahardian took Toquero down seemingly at will, and the Filipino spent most of the fight defending off his back. In the third round, Toquero made things interesting by landing a couple of telling blows but it was not enough to offset Rahardian’s superior ground control.

19-year-old Chinese bantamweight prospect “The Stalker” Xie Bin showcased his tremendous grappling skills in defeating Cambodian Khun Khmer specialist Chan Rothana. After a brief feeling out period for both fighters, Xie scored on a takedown to bring the action to the mat. The second round saw Xie score on another takedown, this time working towards a submission. With Rothana completely out of his element, Xie was able to grab a hold of his opponent’s neck, executing a D’Arce choke to seal the win.

Team Lakay lady striker Gina “Conviction” Iniong made her successful ONE Championship debut, besting Filipino-English fighter Natalie “The Kilapino” Gonzales Hills with a solid display of striking superiority. Looking to play the role of counterpuncher, Iniong laid back and allowed Hills to press most of the action. Iniong dominated in the clinch with knees to the lower body and scored on a handful of takedowns. She then found a home for her powerful right hand which landed with great accuracy throughout the fight. After three rounds, judges saw the bout in favor of Iniong.

8-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion Michelle Nicolini of Sao Paulo, Brazil extended her winning streak to two wins inside the ONE Championship cage with a beautiful first round armbar over previously unbeaten Irina Mazepa of St. Petersburg, Russia. Nicolini utilized a missed kick from Mazepa to take the Russian fighter to the ground. From there, Nicolini worked her magic, easily taking the bout by submission.

Filipino strawweight fighters Robin Catalan and Jeremy Miado kicked off ONE: KINGS OF DESTINY with a wild exchange of striking and wrestling to get the crowd ready for an exciting night of fights. After three gruelling rounds, Catalan emerged victorious by split decision, impressing with a series of emphatic slams while controlling the action on the mat.

NBA LAUNCHES NETWORK OF INTERNATIONAL BASKETBALL SCHOOLS

– NBA Basketball Schools Open to Young Male and Female Players; Top Players at Each Basketball School will have Opportunity to Attend NBA Academies –

– First School Launched Today in Mumbai, India –

MUMBAI, NEW YORK, April 7, 2017 – The National Basketball Association (NBA) today announced the launch of NBA Basketball School, a network of tuition-based basketball development programs around the world open to international male and female players ages 6-18.

The first NBA Basketball School launched today in Mumbai, India as part of a multiyear agreement announced today with India On Track (IOT), one of India’s leading sports management, marketing and development companies.  Additional NBA Basketball Schools will be launched in India and around the world in the coming months.

The new initiative adds an additional layer to the NBA’s existing basketball development efforts, including the Jr. NBA, Basketball without Borders (BWB) and NBA Academies.

The Jr. NBA, the league’s global youth basketball participation program for boys and girls, will help identify young players who have the talent to attend NBA Basketball Schools.  From there, the top players at each NBA Basketball School will have the opportunity to be selected to attend NBA Academies, the league’s network of elite basketball training centers around the world to develop top international male and female prospects.  Registration to attend the NBA Basketball School in Mumbai is now open at indiaontrack.nba.com.

“Our goal is to inspire more young male and female players to learn the game under the guidance of established coaches with proven training techniques,” said NBA Vice President, International Basketball Operations & Head of Elite Basketball, Brooks Meek.  “The NBA Basketball School builds an additional track between the Jr. NBA and NBA Academies with the goal of increasing the pool of players who have the talent to attend our academies around the world.”

“There has never been a more exciting time for the growth of basketball in India,” said NBA India Managing Director Yannick Colaco.  “Between NBA Academy India welcoming 24 elite prospects and the launch of NBA Basketball Schools with our partner India On Track, we are investing more than ever in identifying and training India’s aspiring young players.”

“We are now at the cusp of a new phase in India’s sporting journey, and to ensure its continued growth we need to lay down strong foundations for basketball,” said India On Track Founder and Chief Executive Officer Vivek Sethia.  “This initiative jointly executed by the NBA and India On Track will help to create a platform to identify and engage the untapped basketball potential in India thereby creating a larger talent pool for academies to choose from.”

Each NBA Basketball School will feature year-long, tuition-based programs open to international male and female players ages 6-18.  The NBA Basketball School curriculum, which is designed to help players, parents, coaches and organizations better understand the process of improvement, has been developed by the NBA’s Elite Basketball Development team in consultation with current and former NBA coaches, former NBA players, and player development experts.  The comprehensive curriculum covers oncourt training, strength and conditioning, and basketball education for young players ages 6-18 and will be implemented by local coaches working directly with the NBA’s International Basketball Operations staff around the world.

The NBA Basketball School in Mumbai builds on the NBA’s existing basketball and youth development initiatives in India.  The Reliance Foundation Jr. NBA program has reached more than 3.5 million youth and trained more than 3,000 physical education instructors nationwide since its launch in 2013.  In November 2016, the NBA announced its plan to launch NBA Academy India, an elite basketball training center in Delhi National Capital Region (NCR) for the top male and female prospects from throughout India.  NBA Academy India, the first of its kind in the country, will open in May.

AllHome unveils state-of-the-art showroom in Sta Rosa showcasing world-renowned ceramics and sanitary ware brands—Iris Ceramica and INAX.

Whatever size or shape it is, home is a very special place and spending money on home renovations and improvements is no joke. That is why AllHome offers only the best quality products at any price point for every home need.

AllHome, the most innovative and fastest rising home depot shopping solution in the Philippines, provides homeowners, contractors, architects and interior designers with the widest selections of products to turn homes and spaces into the ideal havens envisioned by their owners.

This summer, AllHome introduced new lifestyle concepts for homes by launching the showrooms of two world-renowned brands in ceramic tiles and bathroom fixtures: Iris Ceramica, the leading Italian manufacturer of high-tech glazed ceramic and porcelain tiles, and INAX, a global leader in the manufacture of sanitary fixtures from Japan – the pioneer of the world’s first advanced toilet seat and automatic faucet.

 

AllHome brings innovative and high-quality Italian Tile Brand Iris Ceramica to the Philippines

Italian tiles are generally known for their unique design and durability but IRIS added innovative modern technologies to their tiles that set them apart from the rest. Iris Ceramica’s award-winning tiles boast of features such as resistance to flexion, abrasion, thermal shock, crazing, chemical stains, and frost. In fact, they also manufacture antibacterial ceramic. Since 1961, Iris Ceramica has been consistent in demonstrating its commitment to the creation of ceramics with high technical and stylistic value. All of its product innovations are backed up by years of intensive research and intense dedication to make quality and reliability synonymous to the brand.

Iris Ceramica unveiled its seven elegant product collections for floors, walls, décor and special places. The collections exclusively carried by AllHome are the following:

Balance—intricately designed wall tiles; Flows; French Woods—glazed porcelain stoneware that mimics the beautiful weathered surface of natural wood; Maiolica—a contemporary tile collection that reinvents tradition as a source of inspiration for the modern look; My Wall—porcelain stoneware solutions for tailored bathrooms, available in eight modern and refined combinable colors, and a broad selection of surfaces to make the most of your bathroom; Palazzo—pieces in muted hues that exude class and elegance; and Slide—offers a new tile size for walls, has bright, glossy surfaces, and hues, offered in a palette marked by decisive, refined shades.

Iris Ceramica tiles are used in world-class hotels like Hotel Monte Sarago in Italy and Hotel Alpenrose in Austria.

With the addition of the Iris Ceramica brand to AllHome’s tile arsenal, homeowners now have hundreds of designs and kinds of tiles to choose from—making it a delight to think about renovating spaces like the kitchen or bathroom.

 

Leading Japanese sanitary ware brand INAX partners with AllHome to enhance the Filipinos’ bathroom experience

Established in 1924, INAX’s heritage started with the production of Japan’s first mosaic tiles. Since then, they have built their reputation on the superlative quality and design of their products. To this day, they continue to find new ways to ‘design smart’ to enhance consumers’ daily lives.

The story behind INAX’s name is known to only a few. In fact, INAX came from the founder’s name ‘Chozaburo Ina’. In mathematics, the letter ‘X’ connotes an ‘unknown variable’ and the addition of ‘X’ in INAX signifies strengthening their passion to challenge the unknown. Another trivia about the INAX branding is that their logo shows the word INAX emerging from a blue space because this represents the brand’s uncompromising quest to create a new way of living for consumers and deliver value based on tireless and original innovations.

INAX draws on the sophisticated technologies and craftsmanship they have developed over the years as Japan’s pioneer manufacturer of bathroom and sanitary fixtures, tiles and building materials.

This high-tech and innovative bathroom solution can be found in the bathrooms of establishments like Aeon Mall in Tokoname District and Hotel Grand Bach Kyoto in Japan.

In the AllHome Sta Rosa Showroom, INAX showcases its exquisitely-designed, superior-quality, and environment-friendly products that boast of advanced technologies. AllHome houses eight collections from the prestigious Japanese brand namely—Echinos, Luxury, Xtreme, Vitality, Familiar, and Standard. Other bathroom accessories and fixtures from INAX such as water closets, bidets, sinks, and faucets are also available in AllHome.

 

AllHome’s INAX and Iris Ceramica showrooms unveiled in Vista Mall Sta Rosa on April 3, 2017

The wide and well-appointed showrooms were highlighted by beautiful but hardworking pieces that reveal the future of premium ceramic tiles and sanitary ware in the country. As AllHome partners, products bearing the Iris and INAX brands will be available in the Philippines only at AllHome stores.

The launch event was punctuated by a short program featuring performances that echoed the Italian and Japanese themes of the brands. Vista Land chairman and former Senator Manuel B. Villar, was special guest at the event together with All Home president Jing Serrano and Country Heads from INAX and Iris Ceramica.

The showrooms make shopping for tiles and sanitary ware more fun and satisfying because of the comfortable, air-conditioned surroundings, well-organized product aisles and the helpful accommodation of the AllHome staff. AllHome now provides residents and offices in Sta. Rosa and nearby vicinities with world-class products and brands that contribute to a distinctive premium lifestyle.

AllHome is indeed a one-stop shop where everyone can find their specific needs for home and lifestyle improvement. Owned by the Villar family, founders of Vista Land and one of the country’s leading home builders, it was born out of a thorough understanding of the real estate industry and a well-established expertise in home building.

There are currently 15 branches of AllHome in the Philippines located in Pampanga, Cebu, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Metro Manila. The hub for home and building needs continues to grow to serve more and more residential communities and provide a complete and rewarding home shopping experience for both families and industry professionals.
