GO Sleeves' inaugural presence at this year’s GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado was epic. Three athletes from the GO Sleeves team were featured in a Fun Run, GO Sleeves athletes made 3 podiums, and we made so many new friends.

World Champion Joe Gray won the Adidas Terrex 10K and recovered on the podium in his calf sleeves.
Our new friend Allison Visosky finished 3rd in the 10k.
Josiah Middaugh and his sons Porter and Sullivan competed in Pepi’s Face-Off. Sullivan used his calf GO Sleeves to fight fatigue and was the top dog in the family this time finishing 3rd.
The GO Sleeves team started their journey at Gravity Haus with the GO Sleeves-sponsored Fun Run. Our GO Sleeve athletes; Joe Gray, Josiah Middaugh, and Zachary Friedley helped host, meet, and run with local trail runners. Here are some of the people we met!
Allison Visosky had the opportunity to be fitted with our calf sleeves and then proceeded to compete in a triple-header. She raced a 5K on Friday, Mud Run on Saturday, and 10K on Sunday. Allison claims she will be wearing her GO Sleeves before, during, and after all of her races in the future. Allison stressed how great it was to recover with GO Sleeves and eliminate fatigue.
Dreama Walton, who we met at the Fun Run, is a pro-ultra-marathoner and a super fun human being! After fitting her with calf sleeves and experiencing them throughout the Games for competing and recovery, she also plans to incorporate them into her recovery process.
The GO Sleeves Team had an amazing experience connecting with so many people at our booth. Being able to connect with them and help them alleviate their pains was very rewarding.
Aaron Lopez, a combat veteran, stopped by our booth. His knees sustained damage during repeated airborne jump landings. Fitting him correctly, GO Sleeves were a game changer for his running and recovery. In his words, “Now that I have these GO Sleeves on, I feel like I can take over the world”. Congratulations to Aaron for shaving 45 seconds off his mile time.
GO Sleeves adaptive athlete Zachary Friedley competed in the 5K and Pepi’s Face-Off. Check out the vertical he had to deal with up and down!

Congratulations to those who made it on a podium: Joe, Sullivan, and Allison! We look forward to seeing you, and meeting more athletes next year at the GoPro Mountain Games!
