What's new from Maui Jim
"Maui Jim sunglasses are great for tennis. The polarised lenses make all the difference when playing outside because they stop the glare. As well as being practical, they also look great!" enthused Oliver Golding.
The Twickenham-based ATP World Tour player joins a roster of international Maui Jim tennis Ambassadors, including Mardy Fish and Sabine Lisicki.
"We are delighted to welcome Oliver to the Maui Jim team. Oliver’s sunny personality and exciting game reflect our brand," said Mark Polloway, sales director at Maui Jim.
Oliver Golding is one of the UK’s brightest tennis prospects. 2011 was a highly successful year for Golding, most notably winning the US Open Boy’s singles title, which was the first time a British player had lifted a boys’ Grand Slam singles title since Andy Murray in 2004.

Javier Gomez - will the Spanish triathlete continue to defy the odds as he continues to go Beyond Reason this August?
Javier Gomez has being going Beyond Reason all his life. Javier was forced to lose his international license at an early age due to a cardiology anomaly. However, he did not just give up and surrender, instead he kept training hard everyday and fought for his rights against the authorities. Since then, this world champion has proved that nothing can stop him and from 2002 to 2010 Javier competed in 57 ITU competitions taking top ten finishes in 54 of them, including 23 gold medals, 12 silvers and four bronze. His daily inspiration is to beat himself as he strives to improve on his fourth place finish in Beijing.

Jan Frodeno - can this "crazy" triathlete make it two gold's in a row in the men's triathlon as he battles back from injury?
This August, Jan will be looking to recreate history as he attempts to win the gold medal in the mens triathlon for the second time. However, his path to the games has not been a simple one. Having being hindered with a achilles injury, Jan had to go the ITU meet at Kitzbühel knowing that he needed a Top 20 finish in order to secure his place at the summer games. Jan's preparations for the event consisted of only a few weeks training but Jan has only got one attitude "whole or not at all" and it paid dividends in Kitzbühel as he went Beyond Reason to book his place in London.
As Jan prepares for London come and join his team, on the Beyond Reason hub where you can get exclusive videos, photos and stories of Jan. As Jan says, "triathletes are crazy" so you never know what he might be up to unless you come join #JANBEYONDREASON today.
