Karsten Warholm, European Athlete of the Year!
A well-deserved title for the PUMA athlete and world class hurdler!
PUMA player Olivier Giroud was ranked third in the scoring table, while European Champion Portugal’s goalie Rui Patricio also sported the yellow-pink boots and gloves on the pitch – in addition to players like Fàbregas, Nolito, Buffon, Chiellini, Lallana, Krychowiak.
“I am happy with PUMA’s performance in the Euro 2016,” said PUMA CEO Bjørn Gulden. “I felt that our players and teams looked good and performed well. Griezmann as the top scorer with our boots and Rui Patricio as one of the best goalies were the true winners of the tournament.”
With an on-field presence of the PUMA logo on jerseys in almost 40% across all matches, PUMA’s five participating teams secured a strong on-pitch visibility. While Switzerland and Slovakia reached the round of sixteen following passionate and decisive appearances, Italy made it to the quarter final beating former European Champion Spain.
Italy was one of the best playing teams in the tournament.
