Luca Colli
Nordic Walker

“I call myself an extreme Nordic walker, as I combine Nordic walking with high altitude mountaineering. In fact, on 30 July 2008, with the Nordic technique, I linked ten Mount Rosa peaks together, all over 4000 metres... To general surprise, both during qualification and in the race, I chose relatively lightweight clothing, thanks to NEXUS FIBER garments.

The water bottle with integrators was wrapped in the Nexus Photonizer. I used NEXUS FIBER garments during both preparation and the race itself, even during my record (established on 30 July 2008) when i linked ten 4000 m peaks in the Mount Rose group together in 9h and 20 min.

The sensation during the performance was always great well-being. During my crisis moment in the race, I'm sure that if I hadn't been wearing NEXUS I would surely have vomited compromising the race itself... I can recommend Nexus garments to all sports enthusiasts, not just competitors or extreme ones, for both performance and recovery after the performance”.
