Spearmon is company’s first top-flight sprinter.
American sprint star Wallace Spearmon Jr. has signed a new footwear and apparel endorsement deal with Saucony. Traditionally known for their distance runners and triathletes, Saucony hopes the signing of Spearmon will begin to build their credibility with short distance sprinters. Spearmon will act as a brand ambassador as well as help with development of a new line of sprint spikes.
Spearmon is a highly accomplished sprinter, just entering the prime of his career. The 2007 Arkansas grad has landed on the 200m podium in three consecutive world championships and his 200m personal best of 19.65 makes him the 5th fastest performer all-time.
