EZFlex Times Square Debut
Set among the storefronts and mega-billboards in the heart of New York City, the EZ Flex wrestling mat, custom-made for Beat the Streets NY, made its inaugural appearance during the Road to Rio "100 Day Countdown" event on April 27th. It was the fourth stop in a tour leading up to Rio Games in August, organized by the U.S. Olympic Committee, bringing the excitement of the Olympics to fans across the country. Wrestling was showcased in one of the event's athlete demonstrations, featuring Olympic gold medalist Jordan Burroughs and three-time World Champion Adeline Gray in a series of exhibition matches.
Just three weeks later, EZ Flex was back for "United in the Square", the seventh annual Beat the Streets Gala. The yearly wrestling event features matches between some of the top wrestlers from the United States and around the world, raising money for the non-profit program which works to make wrestling more accessible to NYC's youth, providing opportunities for at-risk boy and girls and building lifelong skills. This year's gala on May 19th, featured five US Olympic qualifiers facing off against challengers from Iran, South Korea, and Canada. In his match, Jordan Burroughs defeated Iran's Peyman Yarahmadi, remaining undefeated in his six consecutive BTS galas.
In all, the gala was a great success, raising over $1 million for Beat the Streets.
EZFlex prides itself on producing quality mats at an affordable price.
