didn't really see anything about her confirming the leave of saucony, but if so, does seem like a big missed opportunity on saucony's end, but im very open to more competition since it gives us more options to choose fromI thought Seidel said Saucony didn't renew her contract and it's pretty much confirmed she's on Puma. Puma is spending $$$ on building their roster in running, basketball, football/soccer, etc. Definitely a brand trying to make quick moves. Reebok is probably going to stagnate for a while until Adi sells them off and then...?
Supposedly she turned down 200k per year for 4 years from Saucony for the Puma offer, so assume they're paying her quite a bit more or perhaps more guaranteed money.didn't really see anything about her confirming the leave of saucony, but if so, does seem like a big missed opportunity on saucony's end, but im very open to more competition since it gives us more options to choose from
its isn't much, but assuming an athlete is to be sponsored by those big named footwear/sportswear brand, i would have go think that part of the deal includes them cover most of those costs. this also makes me assume that the whole insurance stuff might be covered by the brand too since they could technically be "employed" and receive the benefits that the company offersThe amount of money after taxes that you spend on healthcare, insurance, nonsponsored equipment, training, travel, and races adds up though. $200k doesn't feel like a whole lot for a pro athlete.
