SIGVARIS Active Therapy Socks benefits O'Meara

David O'Meara, The One Mile Runner, had one goal on his mind this summer – to run one mile on six different continents with a combined time of 30 minutes or less. He successfully completed his venture in 29 minutes and 25 seconds all while wearing the SIGVARIS Active Therapy Socks.

O'Meara, who endorses SIGVARIS' Active Therapy Socks, is a world-renowned coach, speaker, author and athlete inspiring people worldwide to live a healthy, active lifestyle.

“I have been wearing compression socks for better athletic performance and improved recovery over the last couple of years. The Active Therapy socks from SIGVARIS are absolutely amazing! The socks have helped me increase my running speed and decrease my recovery time. From the airplane to the race, SIGVARIS was an essential piece of equipment for me to succeed in my race around the world,” O'Meara says.

SIGVARIS, the global leader in compression therapy, sponsors several athletes each year, to help educate people about the benefits of wearing true graduated compression. “We chose to sponsor David O'Meara in his tour, 'Around The World in 30 Minutes or Less' because he's such an inspiration to athletes worldwide,” says Melissa Gwozdz, marketing and communications coordinator for SIGVARIS North America. “David believes in our product and is excited to share his experience with others.”

A growing trend among competitive athletes and weekend warriors, professional sports athletes are using compression socks during and after performance events to improve their results. O'Meara used two SIGVARIS Active Therapy products in his tour, the Athletic Recovery Sock for recovery while traveling and the Performance Sock, a new addition to the Active Therapy Line which officially launches in the United States this year.
