Under Armour exploded onto the scene in the 2000’s and now sits right up top with Nike and Adidas. Their ability to stay at the top once Nike and Adidas started producing similar apparel items is where you can see the importance of marketing. Under Armours marketing strategy takes a different look at things, “Rather than focusing on being aspirational or simply inspirational, the brand focuses on conveying the message that you must work hard to achieve your goals — a methodology that certainly sees benefits, whether you 're an athlete, a businessman, or a sportswear company from Baltimore.” (Business Insider, 2015).

The SWOT analysis reveals that the major factors that influence the sustainability of the company are related to price, supplier sustainability, economic factors, and awareness. Since the company has continued to experience growth and the brand loyalty is strong even when faced with increasing entrants, Lululemon is attractive overall. However, there are some opportunities that Lululemon should consider exploring to help ensure that sales do not begin to decline and prevent the competition from gaining market share.

It will investigate whether the new policies introduced in this timeframe and the current system have achieved its proposed aim of promoting a competitive equilibrium in the league. In sport literature the standard definition of competitive equilibrium states that each team has an equal chance of winning a randomly chosen game and this paper will be based on the same concept. As Ross (1997) stated in his studies, competitive balance is a main concern for all General Managers to maintain league sustainability as a more competitive league, represented by a more uncertain outcome, raises the interest of the fans and the quality of the league itself, leading to larger revenues and higher demand for its product.

Athletes are a perfect example of what hard work and dedication can get you in
Athletes are also role models to kids and teenagers and allowing PEDs would make younger athletes want to use them too. But at the same time, maybe PEDs are ethical. Isn’t the goal of professional sports to have the best of the best battling it out on national television? Professional athletes are supposed to be the strongest, fastest, most powerful people in the world, and PEDs would make them stronger, faster, and more powerful.
