Sponsorships & Ambassadors

  • Dane Swan

    2010 Premiership Player, 2011 Brownlow Medallist, Copeland Trophy winner 2008, 2009 & 2010
    The new boots are the lightest I have ever worn, they make me feel quicker than what I probably am, they are very comfortable I don’t have to wear them in at all I can pull them straight on and play in them that night.

    Another football season, another sustained display of excellence from Dane Swan. Such is his brilliance that 30 possession performances by Collingwood's No. 36 are becoming routine. But don’t let the familiarity of the tattooed arms taking control of the footy lull you into thinking Swan’s performances are normal. He averaged more than 30 possessions a game for the fifth year in a row and cleared 114 stoppages for the season.

    Dane has been a Diadora Ambassador for 3 years now and continues to train and play in our top end Boots and Running shoes.

    Swan's 2013 season kicked up another cog when he had 36 possessions against the Lions in round 10, sparking a three week patch in which he received the maximum nine Brownlow votes. A quiet performance against Port Adelaide after the bye followed, but from there on in he didn't let up, starting with a season-high 41 possessions and eight tackles against Carlton in round 15. He received best afield honours against Greater Western Sydney in round 18 and carried his form into September when he kicked three goals from six scoring shots while being used as an undersized full forward against Port Adelaide in the Elimination Final.

     
  • Lenny Hayes

    Former St Kilda Captain (04, 07), All-Australian (03,05,09), Trevor Barker Award winner (03,10,12.)
    Diadora boots are light weight and have great feel and control when kicking the ball. I love them.

    A three-time Best and Fairest and All Australian and sixth on St Kilda’s all-time games played list, Hayes is not only a favourite of Saints fans, but is universally respected across the AFL for the way he goes about his business on the field. Drafted at 11 in the 1998 National Draft, Sydney-native Hayes had an interest in football stemming from his Victorian-born father, who encouraged him to play the southern code from an early age. After winning the Morrish Medal in 1998 with the NSW-ACT Rams, Hayes quickly stamped himself as midfielder of note once he arrived at St Kilda. A Rising Star nominee in 1999, his ability to win the ball in close and dispose it cleanly made him a permanent fixture straight away.

    In 2003, Hayes became a Best and Fairest winner, All-Australian and International Rules representative before getting his chance to play finals for the first time in 2004 – a year in which he led the Saints to the Pre-Season Premiership. His rich vein of form was interrupted by a serious knee injury in 2006, but Hayes took his game to another level under Ross Lyon, highlighted by his outstanding Grand Final performances including the Norm Smith Medal in the classic 2010 draw against Collingwood.

    A second knee injury in 2011 robbed the Saints of Hayes’ midfield presence, but he returned to full fitness, even after Pre-season surgery to repair a heart defect, and was one of the stories of 2012, winning a third Best and Fairest at age 32 and showing that he has plenty of football left. Off-field, the recently married and proud new father Hayes has been a prominent media performer and is sponsored by Diadora.

     
  • Heath Shaw

     
    I wear the DD Eleven Diadora boots when training and playing. They are light weight, comfortable and a perfect fit for my trade. I’m also loving the new Diadora Net Breathing System runners – they’re an ideal shoe for all surfaces, are durable and give great support.

    A long standing Diadora ambassador, Heath Shaw is one of the most damaging defenders in the AFL. Shaw channels his unparalleled energy into providing attacking flair at half back where he performs well in the air and is dynamic when released into space. At the same time, he maintains the ability to shutdown an opponent but remain a key source of rebound.

    Heath Shaw has carved out a fine career in defence since debuting in late 2005, his leadership and hard-nosed approach made him one of Collingwood's best big game performers and marked him as a key figure in the club's recent successes. This year, Shaw has moved north to join GWS Giants’ quest for AFL success.

     
  • Shaun Grigg

     
    2014 will be my third season wearing Diadora now and I love the fit and comfort of their footwear. I just picked up this season’s latest model which I’m looking forward to playing in this year.

    Shaun Grigg is a no fuss footballer on and off the field. At TigerLand since 2011, Grigg clocked up his 100 game milestone in July 2013. He played 23 games last season, averaging 12 kicks, 9 handballs and 21 disposals.

     
  • Cadel Evans

    Tour De France – 1st 2011, 2nd – 2007 & 2008, Order of Australia 2013, Australian Sports Medal 2000
     

    Cadel Evans is one of those rare individuals that tend to have as much influence outside the sphere of their sporting environment, as they do within it. Geographical challenges are no hurdle to Cadel being informed and when necessary, opinionated, on a diverse range of Australian, and global, social issues. And similarly when applied to cycling you wonder whether Cadel’s greatest influences are off the bike.

    He has now worn the leader’s jersey in all three Grand Tours and a palmares featuring major titles such as the prestigious Fleche Wallonne one day classic in Belgium – where he overtook Alberto Contador with a perfectly timed attack to take the honours on the famous Mur de Huy climb – Tirreno-Adriatico, Tour of Romandie and Citerium Internationale. But maybe the breakthrough victory of his career came with his triumphant victory in the 2009 UCI Men’s Road Race in Mendrisio, Switzerland where he was rewarded for a courageous attack that left a cracking field including home-town and race favourite Fabian Cancellara in his wake.

    But when it does come back to the bike, there can be no doubt Cadel Evans stands alone on the Australian cycling podium. Following a magnificent mountain bike career, his time on the road has seen a magnificent series of achievements that have broken new ground for this country’s cyclists.

    Previously a two-time podium finisher in the Tour de France (2007/08), 2011 was the year Cadel broke through and adorned the yellow jersey in Paris to become the first ever Australian winner of the event, uniting a weary-eyed nation along the way. The win will remain forever in sporting folklore with Cadel, supported by an unprecedented Australian viewing audience, overcoming his deficit of 57 seconds to Andy Schleck with a masterful performance in the 42.5km time trial in and around Grenoble to seize a one minute and 34 second advantage. His ride the next day into Paris in the yellow jersey, champagne in hand, and onto the Champs Elysees are images etched into all Australian’s memories.

    It has been, and continues to be, a magnificent career on two wheels. But Cadel’s success in sport does not singularly define him. It is but one component of this amazing person’s life.

     
  • Merv Hughes

    53 TEST MATCHES, 212 WICKETS
    BEST BOWLING FIGURES 8-87
    (WEST INDIES) 1,000 RUNS
     

    Merv was a big-hearted fast bowler and is an Aussie sporting legend, loved by cricket fans globally as he ripped through batting line ups all over the world. Representing Australia between 1985 and 1994, Merv gave every ounce of effort to his country, and helped it to re-claim cricket’s highest ranks.

    During his international career Merv played in 53 Test matches, taking 212 wickets. He played 33 One Day Internationals, taking 38 wickets. He took a hat trick in a Test against the West Indies at the WACA in 1988–89, and went on to take 8-87. He was a useful lower-order batsman, scoring two half-centuries in tests, and over 1000 runs in all. As well as playing for his country, Merv also represented the Victorian Bushrangers, Essex in English county cricket and Australian Capital Territory.

    Merv made the step into high-level administration when he replaced Allan Border as an Australian selector from 2005-2010. Dressed in a suit and with contemporary glasses he looked anything but the man who mixed jest with aggression as one of the country’s most recognisable players.

    Merv Hughes is a charismatic (and proud!) ambassador for Diadora Utility work boots!

    Born in Euroa, Victoria, Merv’s school teachers described his enthusiasm for sport as “unquenchable”. It’s this hunger for sport which lead Merv along the path of professional cricket and in 1978-79 saw him playing district cricket with Footscray-Edgewater. The club subsequently named their main home ground after him; the Mervyn G. Hughes Oval. Merv was selected for Victoria in 1981–82, and made his first appearance for Australia against India in 1985–1986.

    Following a serious knee injury sustained during the 1993 Ashes tour, Merv made only a fleeting Test comeback the following summer, finishing with 212 career wickets. However, his enthusiasm for the game continued long after his international days. He appeared for the Canberra Comets during their experiment against the states in domestic one-day cricket, and became a veteran of his local club Footscray, the same club that set him on his journey to professional cricket 20 years earlier.

    Aside from being one of Australia’s most recognisable and loved cricket and sporting identities, Merv also has an enormous passion for fishing. It’s this passion that saw Merv release his first book in 2006, ‘Caught in the Deep’. By his own admission, Merv is a long way short of being an expert angler, but as Merv explains with his quintessential mixture of humour, anecdotes and a little input from some of Merv’s more experienced fisho mates, you don’t have to be a pro to enjoy fishing. All you need is a sense of adventure, a love of the outdoors and a willingness to learn from those who know!
