Under Armour inaugurated UA COMBINE competition to establish the ultimate benchmark in athlete performance. To date, a “combine”” is synonymous in the United States as a scouting competition designed to establish the benchmark of fitness needed by up-and-coming athletes. Now, this unrivalled training competition will allow athletes from any sport or training discipline to compete against others in their country and truly test their limits.
With events set to take place across four countries – Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and Thailand, the UA COMBINE 2022 season will kick off in Singapore on 20th August, and travel to Kuala Lumpur on 3rd September, Sydney on 17th September and Bangkok on October 1st, 2022. Registration for UA COMBINE 2022 will be open to 300 competitors (150 males and 150 females) per event. All athletes taking part in UA COMBINE will also receive a head-to-toe Under Armour competitor kit.

Athletes competing in UA COMBINE will be tasked to participate in a total of eight physical and mental tests devised by Under Armour‘s Global Head of Athlete Performance, Michael Watts. Watts, who is based at Under Armour’s global athlete performance center in Portland, Oregon said, “UA COMBINE will give participants the opportunity to challenge themselves against some of the exact same tests we put our world-class athletes like Stephen Curry and Anthony Joshua through.”
Each test will challenge the athlete’s agility, stamina, vertical, power, endurance, strength, speed, and cognition. Points will be earned for each completed test and athletes will be ranked according to their final result. UA COMBINE 2022 medals and cash prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed athletes in both the men’s and women’s divisions.
