Adidas Meets Some Polo Ladies

September 4, 2013

Adidas Women has on online series, called My Girl, where they showcase female athletes. In these two minute segments, Adidas has a young adult female, who is very passionate about their sport/physical activity, talk about why they love it. One webisode has a 23 year old from Minneapolis talk why she loves running. Another follows a group of girls from Hawaii who love to surf. And finally, there is the above video.

Adidas met with the London polo ladies for a My Girl episode. While I don’t believe any of the ladies are actually wearing Adidas in the video, it is still great exposure for them and the sport of hardcourt bike polo as a whole. For us polo players, it is a great little edit of the London polo scene, which we may not get to see otherwise.

Thanks to Mr. Do and Samuel Arechiga we can feel like we never have to leave the NAHBPC mindset. We can sit in front of our computers and pretend like we are still surround by 10,000 lakes and take end the bike polo footage as it continues to roll in.

It started with Mr. Do’s GIF of Koyo snipping that youngster, and was followed by this hilarious GIF of Ace getting hit in his face by his own teammate. Mr. Do didn’t stop there either; as of right now he already has three full game videos online. Not sure why he chose the games he did but they are there and they are a blast to watch! Here are the three videos up so far, and be sure to check Mr. Do’s VIMEO for more action soon!

As mentioned above, Mr. Do isn’t the only one releasing some great NAHBPC footage. Samuel Arechiga from the SOON Media Group put together this fun highlight reel of some of the games from Saturday’s Swiss Rounds. This video is only two minutes long so be sure to give it a few watches so Samuel can see that we appreciate him putting this together!
