Not only were we inspired by the symbols of victory, we were also inspired by Karhu Chairman Franco Arese.
Mr Arese used to be a professional track and field athlete and specialised in the 1500-metre race. In his heydays, he competed on the highest level against some of the biggest athletes of his time.
Honouring Franco Arese, we interviewed him about his most memorable races and trophies.
On the 10th of April, we will launch the second instalment of the Trophy pack at Karhu.com and select retailers worldwide. On the same day, we will also launch the interview with Mr Arese on the Karhu.com blog.
