Jacob White is happy to announce that it has become a proud sponsor of the Philippine Bobsled Team in its bid for success in Canada in the Alberta Cup Championship on 17th November. Their third season in Calgary, the team hopes to best their March result, when they were delighted to win and take home the Bronze medal.

The team will also undergo intense training in Calgary and Whistler B.C. and will be working with some of the best push and driving coaches in the world as they look ahead to the Winter Olympics in Beijing in 2022. 

The team, who are all active-duty Coast Guardsmen, will be sporting the Jacob White logo and we’ll all be rooting for them. They’ve undergone intense, holistic training over the past several months to build the explosive power they’ll need for the crucial push start to give enough speed on the ice canal.


Holistic training for mind and body important to the team

Team training isn’t just about building physical strength. We were pleased to learn that an important part of the Philippine Bobsled Team’s training involves using lesser-known programs and techniques, such as Iyengar Yoga for example, which has been helping to build another dimension of neuromuscular strength and control.

The team has also prepared with physical and mental training at the country’s newest and most advanced training centre, UNLTD. Using a system called Neuroptimal Neurofeedback can encourage better focus, and can, according to one of the team members, improve sleep and sleeping patterns, speeding recovery from intense training and competition.


Gaining ground through sponsorship

According to the team’s manager, it hasn’t been easy for the Philippine Bobsled Team as they’ve battled logistical and financial challenges throughout. The support of their manager and coach, other trainers, employers, family and friends has helped them stay on track with a gruelling regime and through generous sponsorship, the team has been able to fund some of the best training opportunities in the Philippines.

Jacob White is excited to be a part of its own ‘Cool Runnings’ and hope you’ll be cheering them along with us. Follow the Philippine Bobsled Team on Facebook and see how they’re getting on in Canada. Look out for the Jacob White logo on the team jackets and on the bobsled!
