No one seems to believe student athletes when they say that the stakes are equally high on and off the court, but it’s true.
It’s an interesting position to be in, for sure. As a student athlete with a necessarily active lifestyle, your time is (ideally) evenly split between your education, and being in the thick of your competition, where muscle and sinew and sheer force of will struggle in tandem to reach victory. Living that kind of life means constantly bringing your A game in everything you do, testing your limits in the youthful spirit of competition, and becoming better than who you were the day before.
Here, we recognize the character and achievements of student athletes who are making great strides in their sport, and looking good while they’re at it, embodying a #MyStyleMyRules kind of lifestyle. We decked them out in colorful threads by Italian sportswear brand Ellesse, whose form-and-function realness you can now find here in Manila.
