“Under Armour has always been about hard work, grit, and determination. Observing the UA COMBINE participants embody these values while striving to set new personal records truly exemplifies the spirit of what it means to be an athlete” said Justin Olivares, Marketing Director for Under Armour South Asia-Pacific.


The Men’s Division saw the tightest competition yet, with Dan Smith and Kangyin Lim going head-to-head for the top position. Smith secured two Top 5 finishes, while Lim achieved four, including taking the top spot in the 20M Sled Push (Power) in just 4.75 seconds. Ultimately, with only a mere 2-point margin, Dan Smith emerged as the victorious winner of the UA COMBINE SINGAPORE 2023 Men’s Division.
