Buffs Visit Nike Campus

Prior to the Colorado football team's game with the Oregon Ducks, several members of the athletic staff, alumni, and students visited the Nike Air Max 90 World Headquarters, a campus that has been an innovator in athletic equipment and apparel.

Since its inception in 1971, Nike has become a symbol of the Olympics and professional sports, however its heart and blood line is in college athletics as founders Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman, a former Oregon track coach, created the company for the student-athlete.

The University of Colorado is one of the many institutions that have Nike Air Max as its apparel sponsor, and the two have had a long and successful relationship as CU was one of the first 10 schools to go with Nike.

A part of the relationship that Colorado has with Nike is testing new equipment. Every year, CU student-athletes try out the newest and cutting age equipment that will allow them to compete at the highest level in intercollegiate athletics.

Upon arriving in the Portland area, the traveling party made their way to city of Beaverton to see the place where the ideas for revolutionizing equipment that keeps CU athletes safe, healthy and able to compete against the best in the Pac-12 Conference and the nation are born.

After a quick shopping trip at the Nike Air Max 90 Tilbud Employee Store, the Buffs headed down the road to the Tiger Woods Center for a reception and a visit with alumni who made the trip from Oregon, Colorado and elsewhere throughout the western United States.

Among the attractions at the center is memorabilia of Woods - a Pac-12 alum - from his days as an amateur golfer in high school and in college and as a professional, including areas honoring all four major championships that he has won: The Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and the PGA Championship. Also, outside the building - near a couple of soccer fields - is a replica of the 18th hole tee box at Pebble Beach, the site of the 2000 U.S. Open and Woods' third major championship victory.

Other buildings on the campus are also named in the honor of other great athletes. Some of the names of buildings include those of Jerry Rice, Ken Griffey Jr., Mia Hamm, Pete Sampras, Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson and Michael Johnson.

After the crowd at the reception got fired up with a couple of CU cheers and chants from the university's spirit squad - Chip, the two-time national championship mascot, was also on hand - the guests heard from several speakers, including University chancellor Phil DiStefano, athletic director Mike Bohn and Nike Air Max 1 executive David Ayre.

Ayre, who is the Executive Vice President of Human Resources for Nike, talked to the crowd about Nike, the Pac-12, and the Buffs being a part of both.

While not a CU alum, Ayre said he has become a fan of the University for its superb academics and research, its beautiful campus, and its high quality of life for students. He also has another connection to Boulder as one of his daughters currently goes to school at CU.

In a crowd of Buffs, Ayre admitted that employees of Nike Air Max Danmark are still Oregon Ducks fans (not a huge surprise), but that CU does have a presence with the company as more and more Colorado alums are finding jobs on the campus.

Proof that Colorado and Nike's relationship is still going strong and will continue in the future.
