Bailie makes Commonwealth Games debut

Australian triathlete and PROJECT clothing ambassador, Ryan Bailie has finished fifth in his Commonwealth Games debut in Glasgow and anchored the Australian mixed relay team to a bronze medal!

Bailie, 24, was the first Australian across the line on Thursday 24 July 2014 in the men’s individual race around Strathclyde Park in Glasgow.

“It was epic out there. I left everything out on the course,” Bailie said afterwards. Two days later, Ryan ensured Australia’s claim to bronze in the Mixed Team triathlon race on Day 3 of Competition (Saturday 26 July 2014).

The combined team event consisted of two men and two women from each country, competing in a ‘super-sprint’ triathlon before tagging their next teammate. Bailie teamed with fellow Australians Emma Moffatt, Emma Jackson and Aaron Royle in an enthralling race.

“I don’t know where I pulled it from, but I just kept pushing, and managed to do it,” Bailie said afterwards, having crossed just metres in front of Canada’s Andrew Yorke in fourth.

PROJECT clothing couldn’t be happier for Ryan ‘The Flash’ Bailie and we’re looking forward to supporting Ryan as he returns to the ITU World Series for the Grand Final in Edmonton, Canada on August 31. For a full race report on Ryan’s performance visit Sam Maxwell Sports Management.

PROJECT secures compression partnership with world number one triathlete, Gwen Jorgensen

PROJECT clothing’s recent ambassador appointment of world triathlete, Gwen Jorgensen (USA) skyrockets the label’s technical compression range to a global stage.

In less than 10 months the Australian label has shaken up the sportswear industry forming powerful alliances and key partnerships with leading sports governing bodies in Australia, international athletes and teams across triathlon, volleyball and cycling with more announcements to follow.

On Saturday the 28 June at the International Triathlon Union World Triathlon Series (ITU WTS) Race in Chicago, Jorgensen created history becoming the first female triathlete to have ever claimed six WTS titles, soaring her to the top of the world rankings.

American Olympian and world number one triathlete Gwen Jorgensen said, “I’m thrilled to be partnering with such a progressive and innovative team from Australia. Their technical compression range is already making a significant difference to my training and post-race recovery – plus it’s comfortable! You actually want to leave it on. I get cold very easily so the tights are my favourite”.

“When I first met the team, I knew they had something different to offer. Their forward-thinking designs and concepts along with their genuine desire to put the athlete first, is a winning combination.”

PROJECT clothing Founder & Director, Graeme Clarke stated, “We’re excited to have Jorgensen on board as our official compression ambassador. Gwen was a natural choice for us given her hard work and desire to succeed, which has resulted in the domination of the World Triathlon Series this year. We want to continually provide support to athletes on and off the course whilst adding value to their respective sport – we are more than a clothing company and our ambassadors share this philosophy.”

“We are particularly proud of the technical features across the compression range, which is already seeing results for individuals and teams. This has been achieved through rigorous product testing amongst local and international athletes and equally valuing their feedback, whilst having a bit of fun along the way!” concluded Clarke.

Teams and clubs can now custom design technical sportswear tailored to their code without sacrificing on quality or customisation. To enquire email [email protected] or call +61(0)3 9213 8448.
