The road to gold isn’t pretty. And every year, the competition gets tougher — athletes have to train more and fight harder than ever before. But the top of the podium is worth the calloused hands and trembling muscles.
The special-edition “Medal Strong” Metcon 5 honors this gritty journey. The hazy Black upper appears distressed, as though it has been broken in and sweated on. Pops of Gold for men and Rose Gold for women at the heel represent how naturally-occurring Metallic Gold comes out of the ground: not yet polished, but still valuable.
Look for the Nike Metcon 5 “Medal Strong” Pack to release on July 22nd for NikePlus members and globally July 25th on Nike.com. They’ll also be spotted on the competition floor in August.
