Icelandair unveils series of 90-minute football-inspired experiences created by players from the Men’s and Women’s football teams of Iceland

Reykjavik, Iceland, 2018-May-15 — /Travel PR News/ — Transatlantic airline, Icelandair, has today launched Team Iceland Stopover, a selection of 90-minute, football-inspired experiences curated by the Icelandic national team, free for all passengers to enjoy.

Following on from the country’s remarkable feat at the European Championships in 2016, Iceland has made it onto the ultimate sporting stage this summer in Russia and in doing so has become the smallest nation ever to qualify. This is a unique moment in the country’s history and as long-standing sponsors of the team who have supported them on their journey from the beginning, Icelandair is celebrating their success and inviting passengers to follow in the footsteps of the players with specially-designed experiences for all of the family.

These 90-minute experiences highlight the pride of this unique country and the journey the players have embarked on in heading to the biggest tournament in football. As befits a country that champions gender equality and the importance of youth training, Icelandair’s experiences provide travellers with an insight into the lives of both the men’s and women’s team players and Icelandic football history. Just like the players time on the pitch, you can achieve a lot in 90-minutes, so it is time to make the most of it with an Icelandair Team Iceland Stopover.

Aron Gunnarsson, Captain of Iceland Men’s National Football Teamcomments, “When stepping onto the pitch, we know that as Iceland players we have a very special team spirit that stems from our Icelandic history. There are many uniquely Icelandic experiences and traditions that make us the team we are today and we welcome fans of football and beyond to come and find out more by taking a Team Iceland Stopover on their next transatlantic journey.” 

Available from May until the end of June, these 90-minute activities cater to a range of traveller’s passion points, from culture to fitness and well-being. To provide passengers with an authentic experience and local insight into football culture in Iceland, all experiences will be hosted by a ‘Stopover Buddy’, an Icelandair staff member who is passionate about Iceland and football and who takes pride in sharing their local knowledge and expertise.

Björgólfur Jóhannsson, President and CEO at Icelandair comments, “As proud sponsors of the national team, we are thrilled to celebrate their success this summer with our Team Iceland Stopover service. We are continually looking at ways to enhance our customer experience and hope that passengers will enjoy time well-travelled this summer through this value-added offering. Not only can our passengers find out more about the backstory of this legendary team, but we’ve worked with the players to personally design these experiences, allowing our passengers to follow in their footsteps.”

Team Iceland Stopover experiences include:

  • Support like an Icelander: The Iceland teams have a unique bond with their fans and captains Aron Gunnarsson and Sara Björk Gunnarsdóttir know this more than most. That is why they’ve set up the chance for lucky fans to attend either a National Men’s or Women’s team match and learn how to cheer like some of the most passionate fans in the world.
  • Relax like a Pro: After making history for Iceland as their first ever goal scorer at a major tournament, midfielder Birkir Bjarnason knows that downtime and relaxation is a key part of training too. He’s inviting passengers to one of his favourite geothermal areas at Laugarvatn Fontana, where passengers can unwind like a pro, enjoying the geothermal baths, sauna and lake for a swim. 
  • Train the Icelandic Way: International female star Dagný Brynjarsdóttir has a wealth of training knowledge, both on the pitch and off it. Forget weights in the gym and squats. Instead passengers will be put through their paces in a training session featuring stunning views of Iceland’s striking terrain. 
  • Footballing Family: Football in Iceland is a family affair and the legendary Breidablik Academy is the place where many of the national team began their careers when they were young. Among them was Jóhann Berg, who has since gone on to become a Premier League player. Here younger travellers will have the chance to follow in Jóhann’s footsteps with a special 90-minute session at the Academy.
  • Goal in One: Football is not playmaker Gylfi Sigurðsson’s only sporting skill, he also enjoys playing golf (to a very high standard too). Here travellers will be able to play golf on one of Gylfi’s favourite courses in Iceland and spend time with the club pro, who will help our players work on everything from their swing to their putting. 

The one-of-a-kind Team Iceland Stopover experiences will be available for Icelandair transatlantic passengers to enjoy from May to end of June 2018. To find out more and book with Icelandair visit: www.Icelandair.com/Team-Iceland-Stopover

Top Tips to Become a Grandmaster

Professional Chess Coach and Author Mato Jelic Shares Top Tips to Become a Grandmaster

Adelaide, South Australia, 2018-Apr-29 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — Becoming a Grandmaster is a coveted dream for all chess enthusiasts around the world, but not all of them can make it. Successful coach and popular author Mato Jelic has recently discussed how to become a Grandmaster.

Mato Jelic, a highly experienced professional chess coach and the author or two chess books, has recently shared useful tips to help chess enthusiasts in their pursuit to become a Grandmaster. Mato is the founder of one of the world’s most popular YouTube channels related to chess, through which he offers free online chess lessons.

The World Chess Federation (FIDE) has its own set of guidelines and requirements for becoming a Grandmaster. The players must attend official FIDE tournaments and clinch top positions on at least three occasions to qualify for the process. They should continue to attend such competitions known as norms, until their score reaches the 2,500 mark.

Improving his or her chess skills is undoubtedly the foremost requirement for anyone to become a Grandmaster. According to Mato, this can be accomplished by following the tips mentioned below.

  • Learning the tactics: These are the move sequences that can put a player in an advantageous situation and defend or capture pieces. Forks, discovered attacks, and pinning are some of the most important tactics in the game of chess.
  • Knowledge of strategies: Once a player reaches the advanced level, they must have a core strategy for each match. Mato also stresses on the importance of strategies such as Nimzo Defense, Sicilian Defense, spacing strategies, and many others.
  • Proper execution of endgame situations: A clever endgame strategy is extremely important because a poor endgame can very easily spoil all the previous good work.
  • Regular practise: Any aspiring Grandmaster must practice as often as possible against top level players with a thorough understanding of the advanced tactics and strategies. Mato recommends joining a chess club or popular chess sites such as Chess.com

In addition to mastering chess skills, Mato mentions that the different personality traits of an individual can make a serious impact on his or her chances of becoming a Grandmaster. “Ultimately, Passion, inherent talent, competitiveness, discipline, along with a supportive environment, can make all the difference between success and failure,” he says.

A resident of Adelaide, South Australia, Mato is the founder of Chess School SA, a training school that offers chess classes throughout the Adelaide Metro and across the Country Schools in South Australia. He also runs many popular training programs for kids.

Sports medicine: Sway Medical’s app compares suspicious injury event tests against a pre-injury “normative” or baseline score

sway-medicals-app-compares-suspicious-injury-event-tests_epr_sports_news

TULSA, OK, 08-Sep-2016 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — Sway Medical LLC (Sway) would like to announce its official availability in all European Union Countries. Sway was issued its CE Mark after being marketed in the United States and Canada for two years. This is significant because European sports organizations ranging from youth through pro level now have an affordable and convenient sideline assessment tool supporting concussion related medical decision making. Medical professionals and trained coaches can obtain a concussion assessment via an Apple mobile device (iPhone or iPad) and the Sway Balance™ System web-portal. Acute objective measurements are obtained by performing a 1.5 minute balance and reaction time test protocol. Licensed athletic trainers, physical therapists and athletic therapists are able to join physicians in acutely managing the underserved market of youth sports, ages six and older.

Concussion injuries are very common in sports, often going un-reported or ignored until the obvious symptoms have incapacitated the athlete or draws the attention of a parent or coach. Second Impact Syndrome (SIS) is a serious medical condition with published mortality rates of up to 50%. SIS occurs when an athlete returns to play while still recovering from an initial concussion injury. During this time, the brain is highly susceptible to additional injury and complications. The Sway Balance™ System is able to accurately assess and track the acute and chronic outcome related to an athlete’s balance, motion reaction time and concussion symptoms. The Sway Balance™ System provides a graphical representation comparing suspicious injury event tests against a pre-injury “normative” or baseline score. The comparison of event tests against an established baseline is a common measurement for traumatic brain injury diagnosis and recovery tracking.

The Sway Balance™ System is available for purchase by licensed medical professionals involved in school, occupational or sports medicine through www.swaymedical.com. Additional protocols are available to assess an individual’s “Fall Risk” or “Functional Status”.

Sway is very excited to introduce this technology to the European Union. The product’s utilization in sports alone will reduce the unintentional misdiagnosis often made when relying on subjective testing protocols such as BESS & SCAT. Rapidly obtained objective data improves outcomes and medical decision making when assessing acute concussion injury, whether in the clinic or on the playing field. The Sway Balance™ System offers referral physicians immediate, remote access to test results once a test is performed. Baseline and event testing is performed via a free app downloaded to any Apple mobile device by a licensed user. Sway invoices an annual fee, which allows the organization to perform unlimited testing for a 12 month license period. The average annual cost per althlete is less than $4.50 USD, while a system user may be added for additional $50.00 annually.

VILLANOVA BASKETBALL STAR TO SCORE MAJOR POINTS WITH SECOND ANNUAL iBALL PRO COMBINE

NATION’S ELITE FREE AGENT PLAYERS TO COMPETE IN FRONT OF NBA, WNBA & FIBA SCOUTS

POTTSTOWN, PA, April 27, 2016 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — In the midst of “Nova Nation” frenzy, former Villanova Basketball Star Howard Brown (1995-1999) is returning to his hometown of Pottstown, PA with his full service player management, marketing and consulting International Ball Players United, LLP (iBall United) for the Second Annual iBall Pro Combine.

This innovative two-day event, which will be held June 25 and 26 from 9 AM-8 PM ET at Pottstown Senior High School (750 N. Washington St., Pottstown, PA 19464) will feature some of the nation’s top free agents as they compete in front of NBA, WNBA and FIBA scouts for the consideration of contracts at the U.S. and international professional basketball level.

iBall United is a full service player management, marketing and consulting firm focused on building professional careers. The company decided to create the iBall Pro Combine for athletes as an effective yet highly efficient tool for capturing the attention of NBA, WNBA and FIBA scouts in one controlled setting.

Howard, who was a successful player at Villanova and was even one of just a few players to break the 1,000 point mark, faced an uncertain future after graduation. That’s when he pursued a career overseas and became one of the most valuable players internationally. After 13 years playing abroad and winning two championships, two scoring titles and remains one the top 10 scorers in LEB Gold history, he decided to retire and start iBall United.

“It’s an honor and privilege to work with the young men and women who have entrusted us with the opportunity to launch, catapult, and sustain the path to growth in their careers,” said Brown. “I know what it’s like to be confident in your talent but need someone to give you a chance to show what you can do and prove yourself to the key decision-makers that can potentially offer you a contract.”

The iBall United Pro Combine

From action-packed tournament-style games and world-class drills, to intensive speed and athletic tests, iBall Pro Combine demonstrates what it takes to play at the professional level. The event is open to both male and female players. However they must be officially “invited” to attend after filling out an application online at www.iballunited.net and meeting the necessary requirements. Data for all registered players is shared internationally before, during, and after iBall Pro Combine to inform scouts on key metrics associated with professional evaluation.

These include:

▪ Athleticism.

▪ Reading Plays And Decision-Making.

▪ Levels of Contribution to A Winning Team.

▪ Attitude.

To date, several local players have been confirmed, including: Deva’nar Workman – Duquense (Reading, PA) who was a WNBA Top 50 Draftboard Candidate, Ciara Andrews – St Joseph’s, and Devontae Andrews – Temple.

Additionally, marquee players including: Tyler Deihl – ABA Rookie of the Year Finalist, Marcus Cousin – Former NBA Player and Overseas Star and Alexander Morillo – International All Star are also confirmed.

The iBall United Pro Combine and The Community

In addition to the Pro Combine, Howard believes strongly in giving back to his hometown of Pottstown, which is why the event also has a strong focus on involving the community. The iBall Healthy Families Initiative was launched in 2015 to promote health, wellness, and unity of area families and the community.

At the 2015 iBall Pro Combine, 20 businesses participated to help IBall United award more than $1,000 to local charities and 100 youth participating in the Healthy Families Basketball Clinic (HFBC). And the 16 Healthy Families initiative is already expected to more than double the gifts to the community.

The 2016 iBall Pro combine will also feature the HFBC and a new group of Pro Prospects from across the country will volunteer once again in the drills with kids and their families.

New this year, iBall will host the Inaugural United Communities Knockout Tournament. The competition is scheduled for Saturday, June 11 at Spruce Street Park, Spruce and Gay Street

Pottstown, PA. Details are below:

4M FUNCTION, LLC Announces the Launch of the Multi-Functional SURF-O-MAT (TM) Surf Pack

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, April 4, 2016 — /EPR NETWORK/ — 4M FUNCTION, LLC is excited to announce the launch of SURF-O-MAT TM. The patented design transforms the utility of a back pack, wetsuit change mat, beach towel, surfboard sling carry bag, and beach tent shade umbrella into a single multi-function product. It is simple to use, easy to clean and built to perform. The official launch date for the SURF-O-MAT is April 1, 2016.

Surf-O-Mat_Logo_RGB

4M FUNCTION, LLC believes the SURF-O-MAT is built for serious surf adventures or quick surf sessions. The four main components of the design combine form and function that no other surf specific product deliver in a single product.

Surf-O-Mat

BEACH CHANGE MAT
Surf-O-Mat beach mat round shape has more surface area than a traditional beach towel for sitting or sunbathing at the beach. It uses a cushy waterproof EVA foam surface for that won’t collect sand and dries instantly. Multiple pockets provide a discreet way to stash sunglasses, wallet, cell phone, and surf wax while in the water. Standing on Surf-O-Mat makes changing into a wetsuit on a sandy beach, rocky trail, or asphalt parking lot clean and comfortable. After a surf session, pack away a soggy wetsuit to keep the car dry. Cleaning Surf-O-Mat is easy, just hose off and hang dry.

BACKPACK BAG
Surf-O-Mat backpack bag provides a flexible method for transporting gear to the beach including wetsuit, hats, sandals, swim fins, drink bottles, radios, etc. Surf-O-Mat’s fold pattern also expands to accommodate larger items that wouldn’t normally fit in a traditional backpack. A functional shoulder strap allows for personalization. Convert from messenger bag style to backpack harness or quick carry handle simply by changing the strap’s attachment points.

SURFBOARD CARRY SLING
Surf-O-Mat surfboard sling provides a versatile way to carry surfboards. A comfortable shoulder strap makes it easy to carry the board to the beach, while the EVA foam surface protects from dings while in transit. Surf-O-Mat’s open ended design adapts to fit all board sizes including short boards, longboards, fishes, eggs, body boards, kite boards, SUP boards and paddles. Surf-O-Mat could also help carry firewood, food coolers, beach chairs, oversized gear or other hard to haul items.

SHADE SHELTER BEACH TENT
Surf-O-Mat shade shelter provides a new way to deflect sun or rain. Surf-O-Mat’s materials are opaque, virtually eliminating harmful UV rays while its wing pocket design allows for easy adjustment to any sun angle. Lightweight tent poles deliver quick set-up and more stability than traditional beach umbrellas in windy conditions and waterproof construction allows for use in rain. Surf-O-Mat’s grommets and clips can be used in creative configurations to tie onto trees, truck beds, picnic tables, bicycles and more when shelter is needed.

4M FUNCTION, LLC is pleased to announce the launch of SURF-O-MAT.COM, an commerce web site supporting the sales, marketing and distribution of 4M FUNCTION, LLC products. The official launch date SURF-O-MAT.COM is April 1, 2016

New Technology Supercharges Workouts By Over 50%

  • Burns 50% + Calories, With Over 70% Muscle Activation;
  • Weighs Under 3 Lbs.;
  • Has the Functionality of Over 15 Products In One;
  • Can Be Used With Any Exercise Routine;
  • And Is 100% Mobile, It Can Go Wherever You Go!

Baton Rouge, LA, October 27, 2015 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — Adrian Cornish and Nathan Roy have innovated a new technology built into wearable shorts that allow users to more than double the results of any exercise workouts, while providing a full body workout system for fitness enthusiasts as well as serious athletes.

Roy said, “Studies by the LSU School of Kinesiology have shown that users experience an average of 70% more muscular activity for muscle strength; 50% + more calories burned to shed unwanted pounds; increase in lactate threshold for increased endurance; and increased cardiovascular activity for heart health; all achieved with low level (5lbs – 25 lbs.) resistance.”

Michael James MacLellan, PhD, Assistant Professor at the Louisiana State University School of Kinesiology said, “Our preliminary research suggests that using this suit increases muscular activity at the shoulders, hips, knees and ankles during walking and running tasks. The added resistance may lead to more effective weight loss due to the increased muscle activity generated by the wearer.”

For busy people with limited time, they can cut their workouts in half, for example, getting the results of an hour in just 30 minutes. They can even wear them during normal activities.

The Apex BRS provides the functionality and comparable resistance of over 15 exercise products in one, including weighted vests, wrist weights, weighted clothing, parachutes, the Vertimax (platform based product), Mass Suit, etc. While other products target limited areas of the body, the Apex BRS provides a full body workout.

The Apex BRS are compression shorts made of a specially formulated nylon fabric that’s laminated with neoprene and reinforced with nylon webbing, giving it a tough yet pliable nature to support high levels of resistance without degrading, while being very comfortable to wear.

The compression shorts have built in attachment points at the legs and hips that act as strong anchors for several levels of resistance latex bands that attach to different areas of the body to target various muscle groups. Horizontal latex bands of interchangeable resistance strengths wrap around the thighs with resistance levels that can be adjusted from five to over 200 lbs on the legs. Optional bands wrap around the arms with resistance from five to 100 lbs.

The BRS doesn’t use any weights, instead creating resistance through the user’s natural motions. At under three pounds, the BRS has minimal hardware and is extremely comfortable to wear for longer periods of time. The combination of its light weight, the fact it’s wearable, with resistance levels surpassing the most sophisticated equipment on the market, along with the ability to use it anywhere, for any length of time, raises the bar for resistance training. It’s a tool not just for athletes, but for people of all ages and fitness levels. With the improvements users gain in speed, agility, explosion, and endurance. It’s easy to see why users feel like they’re the bionic man or woman after training with the BRS.

Tommy Moffitt, LSU head strength and conditioning coach passionately endorses the BRS, and has given his blessing in a testimonial that is on Apex’s website.

Adrian and Nathan have launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise $20,000 in support for their company. Backers can pledge from $18 to $5,000 for incentives that include special early bird discounts on the BRS for under $100.

To find out more about the Apex BRS, follow their updates and support their campaign, visit the Kickstarter page through November 19.
