ristan Clemons, goal keeper for the Australian Kookaburras, who is playing in the Indian Hockey League and is sponsored by o2fit has sent us a quick update.
Hey o2fit crew,
Just wanted to say a quick hello from India and the Kalinga Lancers. The hockey India League has started and being the new franchise in the competition we took a little while to find our feet dropping our first two games against some pretty well organized outfits in Punjab and Delhi.
We had our first win last night against the Mumbai Magicians, which was fantastic and especially good to do in front of a packed house home crowd.
Away from the hockey pitch we have had a great time getting to know our Indian teammates and also some of the staff around Bhubaneswar. This lad here (see picture below) was one of the waiters at our hotel and before our first game was stoked to don the orange headband in support of us while passing out a few butter naans.
So far the o2fit compression gear has been great, especially when playing in Delhi where it was pretty cold once the 8pm game time came around. I got a quick snap here in my long sleeve top taken by my roomie as we were preparing to get out and tackle Delhi in Game 2.
Cheers for the support and will keep you guys posted.
