USATF partners with airweave to support athletes at team training camp

8/12/2015
 
INDIANAPOLIS – USATF athletes preparing to compete in the IAAF World Championships will get quality sleep, thanks to USA Track & Field’s partnership with premium bedding topper company, airweave.
 
airweave will provide USATF with toppers at Team USA training camp August 10-27 in Narita, Japan. Athletes in Narita will be preparing for competition at the IAAF World Championships, to be held August 22-30 in Beijing.
 
Nearly 100 USATF athletes are expected to participate at USATF training camp in all event groups, including sprints, hurdles, distances, throws and jumps. USATF coaches, medical staff, trainers and managers also will be on hand to help the team prepare.
 
The scientifically supported topper allows for more restful slumber through its ergonomic, breathable design, and high resilience which help users turn over more easily. airweave is proven to minimize strain on joints, reduce restlessness while sleeping and distribute weight evenly, all of which amount to a life-enhancing sleep experience that leaves people feeling invigorated and refreshed upon waking. 
 
“We are very pleased to partner with airweave in a way that directly benefits our team,” USATF CEO Max Siegel said. “Better sleep means better performance, and we look forward to our team reaping the benefits of airweave and their offerings.”
 
“airweave is extremely proud of our ongoing relationships with athletes around the world.  We are excited to partner with USATF--offering them the rest and quality of sleep they need to be at the top of their game,” says Motokuni Takaoka, CEO and president of airweave.
 
USATF athletes have traditionally led the medal table at the IAAF World Championships.  In 2013, Team USA tied its best medal tally at the World Outdoor Championships taking home 25 medals.  USATF athletes dominated the scoring table finishing a full 100 points ahead of host Russia, posting the highest point total and greatest margin of victory. If the current year’s performances are any indicator of what can be expected at the 2015 edition of the World Championships, Team USA will continue to perform as the World’s #1 Team.

About airweave
Founded in 2004 by President and CEO Motokuni Takaoka, airweave is one of the leading manufacturers of premium bedding toppers.  airweave began when Mr. Takaoka took over his uncle’s plastics company. Realizing that the plastic resins produced through an injection molding process had unique physical properties, Mr. Takaoka developed prototypes for an entirely new application that would revolutionize the bedding industry. The result was the airweave mattress topper, whose state-of-the-art core material consists of three-dimensional resin fibers that offer a higher level of comfort for the best quality sleep.  airweave is proven to minimize strain on joints, reduce restlessness while sleeping and distribute weight evenly, all of which amount to a life-enhancing sleep experience that leaves people feeling invigorated and refreshed upon waking. Already a phenomenon in Japan, airweave has become a category leader nationally. In 2014, Mr. Takaoka brought his innovative Japanese technology to the United States via online sales, and in February 2015, airweave opened their first flagship store in Manhattan’s SoHo district at 498 Broome Street.  Store hours are 11am to 7pm Monday through Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.  Customers can call the store at 646.918.7036 for a private airweave quality sleep consultation.  For additional information, visit www.airweave.com.
