(representatives speaking) >> announcer: the following content is provided courtesy of tommiecopper.com. over three years ago tommie copper created a new concept in relief and performance that has helped countless every-day people live more positive lives. along the way, it's helping a 21-time rodeo champion stay on top of his game, a world-class triathlete return to the top of the podium, a 21-time olympic medalist recover faster from knee surgery and pursue her passions, a pioneer in mixed martial arts capture her first world championship belt, a high-school girls softball team repeat as best in state, and the fastest american win against those half his age. this apparel is unique because
copper znergy provides uv and odor protection, while our compression brings natural soreness relief and recovery to the places that need it -- knees, elbows, wrists, lower back and shoulders, feet, and ankles. designed to harness the inner power of our body to recover naturally, tommie copper's original energywear is the new intersection of wellness and performance. and those who wear it call it revolutionary. we call it the next evolution in performance apparel. and the full collection can be found at tommiecopper.com. >> when i arrive at the stadium, i really don't want anybody know i'm there. i want to show up like a ghost. i want to show up like seal team 6. so, when i step on the track there's nothing for them to do except run. and when i'm ready, i'm gonna be the one that's more ready than
them. when i was a little kid, i knew i had something special because i would run and beat all my classmates by far. then i'd tell them to get on their bicycle and i'd still be on foot, and i still would beat them while they're on their bikes. i became the student of my own sport. you know, i had to make sure i win, watch highlight tapes of dennis, watch carl lewis michael johnson, those guys, and basically combine that and made who i am today -- a better runner, a smarter runner. >> justin gatlin. >> you're going into all different kind of environments all the time. i'm in jamaica right now. the next one.

up, feet swell up, shoes feel tight on your feet, joints start to feel tight, so you want to make sure you have something that's gonna counter that, so i use the compression wear for that. once we land, we got almost 24 hours to 48 hours to get ready to run as fast as we can. you walk into the stadium, people stand up. having to start running, just get a better look at you and be excited. you're not just a runner. you're a performer. people have paid to come see you run for only 9 seconds. >> on your mark... set... [ gunshot ] >> don't just visualize yourself running the track, running your race. visualize feeling the impact of your foot touching the ground, your breathing. visualize not just the grass but a blade of grass. take it to a whole other level.

>> don't put an age limit on your dreams. when i got to the olympic trials in '08, i felt like if i can make the olympic team, then all those middle-aged people out there can do what they thought they couldn't do because either they were too old or they didn't feel like they could find a balance in their life to do it. exercise and fitness are so important to me. it's always been a staple in my life, and when i go to the gym now, there's just so many things that i can't do because of no cartilage in my knee. the thing that bums me out the most is the fact that i can't do the things with my child that i want to do. i don't want an injury to dictate what i can and can't do in my life. basically, what's happening with my knee is i've lost cartilage so i have bone on bone. >> dara's been a competitive athlete her whole life, as you know, and that doesn't just go to swimming. that goes to everything that she
does. she continues to have pain and swelling, and it limits what she can do. at this point in time, surgery is her only option. >> my daughter is eight years old, my stepkids are 14, and they are full of energy. as far as work goes, i hope i can still give motivational talks and go out there and try to inspire people. so, i am completely honored and inspired by you amazing athletes. the athlete in me knows that i need to work before the surgery and after. i've already started physical therapy, trying to work my leg work some muscle into my leg. >> one of the biggest things that's gonna happen is that you're gonna have swelling of the muscles around the joint. so that's where using compression can really come in is to help. >> managing swelling and pain is critical to any knee surgery. >> i use the tommie copper knee sleeve practically all the time. a great physical-therapy regimen is extremely important after surgery, but i know that i have that safety net of tommie copper to wear the sleeves and the compression wear. that's gonna be another entity in my recovery to make sure that i can recover much quicker. and i just want to get this right knee done so i can go and

>> 21 world titles are going to camden, ohio -- shawn minor! >> shawn minor -- [ chuckles ] oh, man. cowboy, icon, legend. he's a guy that i love being around just because he loves this sport for what it is. and rodeo today is america's original extreme sport. it's not a matter of if you get hurt. it's a matter of when and how bad. >> i had a bull buck me off and step on my ribcage, broke my sternum in half, broke my ankle, spiral fracture, broke a vertebrae in my neck, broke like
9 or 10 bones in my foot. >> tore my bicep in half. >> broke collar bone. i got ribs taken out of my chest. >> knee injuries, broken arms. >> cracked my tailbone. >> boy, you name it, i think we've seen it. >> when our guys don't play, they don't get paid. they ride with bumps and bruises and broken bones, and these are the toughest athletes on earth. >> you know, it ain't something that we just do because it's cool. it's who we are. most of these guys have been raised on ranches or work for ranchers. they don't get paid $60,000, $70,000 a year. they get paid $700 a week if they're lucky. >> this is the real deal. there's nothing easy about this work. but it's what we do, and we love it. >> i've seen every kind of different injury there is. >> i had a horse -- he went end over end and lit on top of me. and my hips hurt, my back hurt. you know, i was whinebagging around there and letting kids beat me that shouldn't. i was just like, "i'm not gonna be one of them guys that needed to hang it up 10 years ago."
my lower back was what was really bothering me. you know, it just grueling just trying to get going in the morning. and i was gonna quit riding. >> a guy of his age shouldn't be riding bucking horses at the level that he's at now. the last year, he has really shined. >> it's fun for me now. it has been this whole year. >> he is our copper cowboy -- shawn minor. >> for him to come in here and easily walk away as the ifr 44 champion in the bareback riding, it's got to be something. >> when i'm done riding bucking horses, my day job begins. running a ranch is just as painful as rodeo. my routine is first thing in the morning, i put the shirt and shorts on. i wear tommie copper's compression on all of my joints all day long. it loosens me up. basically, i have it on every day. i guess i should sleep in it.
tommie copper's compression helps enhance muscle and joint mobility. it's comfortable, it's easy to put on, and it soothes my aches and pains. as soon as i put on my tommie copper, i can feel the difference. i'll never go a day without it. >> announcer: live a more positive life with tommie copper. call or go online to see the entire range of recovery and performance lines. see how you can qualify for free shipping and multi-pack discounts. >> lesley paterson is a two-time xterra world champion and one-time itu cross champion. >> she races at the top of the world in xterra and in mountain biking. >> people think that she is just top-of-the-game all the time but she deals with the same mental, physical battles that
every other single person does. >> being injured, as an athlete, is just par for the course. i've been suffering from an injury for about six months. it has been the most emotional journey i've ever been on in my life because you realize what the sport means to you. because it's part of my soul and when i don't have it, i don't know how to function in life. it's been a really hard time. i'm working through it, and i'm getting better, and i'm now finding joy in passing what i've experienced to others. that's why i created braveheart coaching. this isn't about winning races or getting on the podium. it's really to mentor them, to help them fulfill their dreams.
>> lesley really introduced me to how i can be a triathlete. >> she learned what my weaknesses were, what my strengths were, and how we can adapt them to just be a better all-around triathlete. >> and i do believe in marginal gains. that's a huge part of how i train, so every little thing counts. wearing my tights every night to bed counts. every little positive increment you can get to make your body feel better is essential. >> it takes five seconds to throw on recovery tights or recovery socks and head to work. nobody knows i have them on, but all day, i'm getting that recovery process going. >> i get into compression as soon as i can. so it's been very essential for me. >> that's an easy recovery. they'll do whatever it takes to get that little bit of an edge. >> team braveheart is not necessarily about winning races or getting on the podium. it's been about excellence and the way that they live their lives.
the day of the race or an intense training, i put my tommie copper gear on and assume a fierce character. it's important that the compression and exercise gear look as good as it performs. i love the support they give me, and the performance line has so many bright colors to fit my mood or match my outfit. u.v. sun protection and moisture wicking is crucial when i'm training 12 hours a day in the california sun. so is compression. it helps stabilize muscles reduce lactic-acid buildup, keep me going the extra mile. when it gets cold out, i switch into the agility compression tights and the agility mock neck. they keep my muscles warm and loose. the finger holes keep my hands protected, too. i've used a lot of different methods to help rejuvenate my body after a competition. but tommie copper's different. it all combines to make something truly unique. i'll never give it up. >> announcer: view the entire range of performance gear and recovery wear by calling the

'cause they're gonna fight they're gonna play for one another. anytime you can put team first the more success you have on the field. >> winning is always the goal,
but it's not everything. because losses teach these kids something. if they won all the time, they'd never really get to figure out who they are as people and what they are as a team. >> i want to be a professional baseball player. i want to go to the big leagues and stay there for a long time. >> when he's on the field, it's all baseball. he's got to do everything he can to keep his body in shape. it's everything to milton to stay healthy. >> injury prevention now is essential for these guys. >> youth baseball -- now it's year-round. it's almost like a job for these kids. >> a lot of times, the girls may wear the tommie copper socks because they have some lower-leg or calf or foot problems that may arise. some of my infielders who have to make a lot of throws overhand use the elbow sleeve, where there's a lot more stress on the elbow. my catchers and pitchers like the wrist sleeves, because they have to do a lot of flexing and impact on their wrists
throughout the game. so that helps them stay fresh and stay stronger for a whole game. >> you know, in baseball injury's a part of the game. that's what happens. you can't prevent some injuries. and we wanted every opportunity to figure out, "how can i keep my elbow as good as i can keep it?" >> these guys play at a high level. these kids all have d1 aspirations. the goal is states every year. these guys -- they come to american heritage having that dream, knowing that this team has these capabilities, and that's the goal we set for them every year. as it comes down to everything you know, it depends on them. once the lights turn on, are the stars gonna show up? is our pitcher gonna be the best she can be? or is our offense gonna be the best on the day? is our defense gonna be best on the day? so when the lights go on, the superstars need to come out. >> most coaches will tell you, "we're gonna be pretty good if

>> announcer: the following program is a paid advertisement for the shark rocket brought to you by euro-pro. >> [ british accent ] this is my newest dyson slim ultra-light vacuum. >> and this is my shark rocket. it's also an ultra-light vacuum. >> well, my dyson has no-loss-of-suction performance and go-anywhere versatility. >> same no-loss-of-suction and same go-anywhere versatility. and i did my research. i found that independent lab testing proves my shark rocket can truly deep clean carpets better than a full-size upright. >> [ laughs ] deep-cleans carpets better than which full-size upright? uh, er, are you sure your research said that the shark rocket deep cleans carpets better than a full-size dyson
upright? >> independent lab tests don't lie, and neither do shark owners, which is why shark has earned more five-star online reviews than any other vacuum brand. >> announcer: vacuums have been designed the same way for the past 100 years. they're big, heavy, and not easy to maneuver. >> it was so big, and it was hard to get around corners. >> i'm constantly hitting my furniture. >> they're just awkward. when you try and lug that thing up the stairs it's heavy. it doesn't quite do the job. >> announcer: dyson solved this problem by slicing down the traditional upright design and invented the first go-anywhere ultra-light upright. there was just one problem. while it's fine for quick cleanups and surface dirt, unfortunately, it just doesn't deep-clean carpets as well as a full-size dyson upright. a year ago, shark introduced the revolutionary rocket and solved that problem.
the rocket is the world's first no-loss-of-suction ultra-light upright that truly deep cleans carpets -- even better than a full-size $400 dyson dc40! and one year later, rocket owners are still thrilled how the rocket has made it easier to clean their homes and taken the work out of housework! >> i was amazed! >> wow! >> this is awesome. >> it's just so easy. >> the power is just amazing! the suction is just as strong as it was the first day that i got it. it makes it very simple to clean the house thoroughly and be done. >> i haven't had it lose suction. i haven't had to take it to get it serviced. and i actually have to clean less now. >> i'm not gonna lie. i love it! >> announcer: at only 8 pounds shark's breakthrough rocket design delivers for the first time an ultra-light vacuum that goes anywhere, is easy to maneuver, and also delivers incredible, true deep cleaning for the whole house! >> this shark rocket is so versatile and amazing. >> i never thought that something this small could be so
powerful. >> it's got incredible suction power for the size of the vacuum. >> and i've never seen such a small vacuum with this much suction. >> it's so much power! the word rocket -- when you turn it on it just goes! [ vacuum whirs ] woosh! >> announcer: there's no doubt that the shark rocket is changing the way people clean their homes. but how does the rocket stand up to the dyson dc59? stay tuned to find out. the rocket re-defines what technology and power in an upright vacuum can be, just the sort of innovation you'd expect from shark! >> one of the great things is that i can get underneath all my furniture. it goes around them. it goes between them. it just lays flat. >> announcer: the secret to getting that incredible cleaning power out of an ultra-light design is shark's patented rocket technology. this technology breakthrough delivers more true no-loss of suction than shark engineers ever imagined possible in such a compact and lightweight design until today! the rocket's motorized power head uses advanced electronics
and micro-transmission technology that can deliver true, deep carpet cleaning and at the same time enhanced swivel steering. and one year later, rocket owners are so amazed they can't wait to tell their friends and family. >> after having owned the vacuum for about a year, there hasn't been any loss of power, no loss of suction, even when the canister is full. other family members that i have who have bought other vacuums, i've called them and told them "you need to go back and get a shark rocket." >> i have recommended the shark to my sister. first, she vacuumed my house and then she took it home to vacuum her house because she just couldn't believe, with the suction, all the dirt that she was getting and everything. and then she got one. >> announcer: the rocket is the first ultra-light upright vacuum with the cleaning power of a full size, true no-loss-of-suction upright. a vacuum that not only picks up little messes, but also has the power to deep clean. and with the rocket you never, ever run out of power. and the rocket's enhanced swivel steering gives it incredible maneuverability around, between, and way under furniture.
try that with your current upright! >> i could turn the rocket on a dime. >> i can get under my bed, under low chairs without having to move all of the furniture out of the way. it gets into places that otherwise, i don't think i'd be able to get a vacuum to. >> i'm able to get all the way underneath my couch. until i started using the shark rocket, i didn't even know a vacuum could do that. >> announcer: the rocket is not just an incredible upright. it also quickly transitions into a powerful portable vacuum that lets you target its amazing true no-loss of suction wherever you need it -- on your stairs, ceiling fans, bookcases, vents woodwork, upholstery, drapes the car! the rocket cleans them all! and the shark rocket has a host of ingenious, available attachments that you won't find anywhere else, including the incredible dust-away that picks up large and small particles while its reusable microfiber pad picks up dust a vacuum alone can't, and the under appliance
wand that reaches places you just couldn't clean before. >> the under-appliance for the rocket did amazing picking everything up. this is just from underneath my stove, which, that scares me. [ laughs ] >> announcer: there is no question about it -- the revolutionary rocket ultra-light upright is the vacuum of the future! and now, to celebrate this special anniversary, shark c.e.o. mark rosen has an unbelievable offer. he is so sure you'll love his ultra-light shark rocket, he's going to send you his incredible steam mop, a $100 retail value. it's yours free, and yours to keep, even if you return the rocket for any reason. >> hello. i'm amy motta, and i'm here with shark's c.e.o., mark rosen, to introduce you to his latest cleaning innovation. >> and here it is -- my shark ultra-light rocket. >> it's not only a new kind of shark, it's a complete rethinking of how to design an upright.
>> this is the kind of innovation people have come to expect from shark. the rocket has true no-loss-of-suction and enhanced swivel steering. but it's also ultra-light and can clean from floor to ceiling with ease. and the rocket does all of that without sacrificing deep carpet-cleaning power. watch this. look at the way it just powers through all of that pet hair. look at the swivel action. it's so easy to maneuver. all right. now, over here, i'm gonna head over to the bare floor. so i'm gonna set it on the bare-floor setting. >> okay. >> and watch this. look how it picks up everything and maneuvers. this is so much fun. it looks like a little robot going after the dirt over here and the pet hair. this happens all the time in your home if you're a pet owner. >> sure does. >> and look at this. i go to the next surface. now, look at the way i can get into the grout, and, again, i have easy maneuvering. look at the way every single little particle that's in the
grout here is able to be picked up. >> i have never had a vacuum that's been this easy ever. this is what sealed the deal for me. i love this part. the flip of a switch... and it goes right to the carpet and it picks it up. >> i really know that i'm getting a deep-down clean with the carpet. i can feel it from the minute i turn on the machine. i'm able to get the fine particles and the large particles all in one shot. >> let's compare your new 8-pound rocket upright to this full-size 15-pound dyson upright. >> we poured exactly the same amount of sand on both sides and embedded it deep into the carpet with a heavy roller. now let's see which vacuum does a better job of pulling out that sand. all right. one...two...three... now that's four. all right. let's see how much sand we got.
all right. you go first, amy. >> all right. okay. yeah. >> now look at what i've got over here from the rocket. >> whoa! >> is that incredible? wow. look at that. >> that's incredible. >> the rocket truly is the upright vacuum of the future. >> announcer: to prove the shark ultra-light rocket can pick up what full-size uprights leave behind, we asked these women to vacuum their own carpets and rugs with their own full-size upright vacuum. they did their normal, thorough vacuuming. their vacuums picked up a lot of dirt, and these women were very satisfied with how clean their carpets were. but then we gave them a shark rocket with a completely empty dust cup and asked them to go over that same area again this time with the shark. the results were astonishing. >> oh, my gosh. >> that is a lot of dirt. i guess that came from my carpet. >> okay, this is scary. >> pretty gross. >> [ chuckling ] oh, my gosh. >> i am super embarrassed.
>> announcer: the ultra-light rocket proved that even though it's lighter and leaner than their full-size vacuum, it still has the power to pull out the dirt, pet hair, and grit their full-size vacuum left behind. >> i cannot believe how much dirt actually came out of that rug that the first vacuum didn't pick up. >> i'm always vacuuming. and so i just didn't expect that i would be able to get this much dirt out of my carpet. >> well, i thought we were relatively clean around here [chuckling] but i'm beginning to wonder. >> i am so grossed out. i'm gonna be cleaning all night long after all that. i cannot believe how much dirt came out of my carpet. >> announcer: introducing the revolutionary shark rocket, the world's first no-loss-of-suction ultra-light upright that can truly deep-clean carpets even better than a full-size, $400 dyson dc40. it's so versatile, it will change the way you clean your entire house! plus, the shark rocket goes from an ultra-light upright to a powerful, lightweight portable vacuum making it perfect for quick pick-ups no matter where

it's got a washable microfiber pad in the rear, and huge suction power in the front. you're gonna love it. >> mealtime can be pretty crazy at our house, and the kids tend to make quite a bit of a mess. with the dust-away it's really easy. you flip it on and you just roll right over it and it just picks everything up. >> the rocket has helped me overcome the challenge of being such a huge pet owner. and the dust-away has made my life a lot easier. it doesn't blow the pet hair around. when i want to pick it up, i just aim the head right at it and it swoops right in. it's done a great job keeping my home clean. >> how often do you clean under your appliances? be honest. maybe a couple times a year? >> who could blame you? the battery-powered dyson, the swiffer vac, even conventional crevice tools -- they really can't do the job. well, my incredible under-appliance wand eliminates that hassle and makes this tough
job easy. [ vacuum whooshing ] >> what the heck was that? >> all this came from my appliances. >> oh, man! [ laughs ] that is a bunch of stuff. the under appliance for the rocket did amazing picking everything up. and this is just from underneath my stove, which that scares me. [ laughs ] that is so nasty. >> until now, if your upright vacuum came with a rotating brush, it was actually just air-driven. with the rocket, we wanted to give you even more cleaning power, and so our new rotating brush is actually motorized. >> yeah, the motorized is great because it's powered the whole time. this brush, it's like having a regular floor-powered head on the vacuum. dust and hair can really set into this upholstery, and this just pulls it right up. >> i would have had to take
my cushions outside and pound them, or throw them in the wash machine. this just picked it all up. >> announcer: shark customers absolutely love their shark rocket so much they just can't keep it to themselves. >> i have a friend that i recommended the shark to. her name's lindsey woolsey. she actually had seen me on the shark commercial, and she called me and said, "kaye, my vacuum has just died and i really need a new one." >> i just wanted to know, is it really that good? and she said, "yes, it really is that good." what really got me is that she told me how she had vacuumed with this professional vacuum on her carpet, and then right after vacuumed with the shark rocket and how much dirt the shark rocket still picked up. her jaw literally dropped. >> oh, my goodness! [ laughs ] my shock and surprised was real. it really has more suction than any vacuum i've ever used. >> i remember you telling me that, and i was like, "aah!" and so i was, "okay, no, i believe her." >> if i didn't fully believe in the rocket, i wasn't gonna tell
her to go buy it. you know, she was a good friend, and i could honestly tell her, "lindsey, i love it! it's a great vacuum. i don't have any complaints. i'm sure you'll love it if you get one." and she did. >> announcer: introducing the no-loss-of-suction ultra-light upright that delivers true, deep-down carpet cleaning -- the shark rocket. the upright of the future, it will completely change the way you clean your home. call or go online now and order your shark rocket at the direct-from-the-manufacturer special price of just five payments of $39.95. that's an absolutely incredible value. along with your rocket, you'll also receive this 12-inch crevice tool, dusting brush, pet-hair tool, and handy wall mount for easy storage. plus, we'll include a lifetime v.i.p. service guarantee. if anything goes wrong, shark will take care of everything. you pay absolutely nothing guaranteed. and if you order in the next 14 minutes, shark will also include their best-selling steam mop, a

it. and i haven't seen a loss of suction. i haven't had any parts break. it's been able to sustain our family. >> i gave the shark a go and i'm really happy that i did. >> announcer: when it comes to cleaning messes all around your home, it's hard to beat a vacuum with true cleaning power that's so compact, so versatile, and so lightweight. and while dyson has a battery-powered compact vacuum can it actually perform as well as the original shark rocket? we gave these dc59 users a shark rocket and let them compare for themselves. >> just the normal power head is working and doing a better job than the dyson digital slim. it's picking it up fast the first time and not spreading it around my kitchen. >> when i first started using the dyson i was extremely impressed in the beginning, but then when i was able to use the shark, you can tell that it has more suction, that it has more
versatility. one of the challenges that i had with the dyson was i could literally not go through my entire house before i had to recharge it. having to recharge it really was a struggle, versus, you know using the shark, where i can plug it in wherever i needed to. >> now, amy, this rocket is so incredible. it's breakthrough technology because it's no-loss-of-suction, but it's so compact and it has so much capacity. most vacuums, if they're not no-loss-of-suction, they have a hard time handling the fine dirt. look at this flour over here. this represents a few months of fine dirt that a vacuum could pick up. so i'm gonna suck that up first with the crevice tool. look at this. all right. now i'm gonna put it through a real torture test. first a whole bunch of sand. now, remember, this is an ultra-light vacuum cleaner. look how small and lightweight it is, but it can keep going. this is true no-loss-of-suction. and i'm seeing also, at the same
time, i have huge capacity. look at the way i can keep going. you can see -- look how quickly i can pick all this up. it's incredible. all right, some goldfish. look at this! look, it's still pulling in from a distance. no loss of suction. this is true breakthrough technology because it's so compact and lightweight. no one has ever made a vacuum cleaner like this before that's a true upright that can deep-clean carpets, after picking up all of that, and be so lightweight. watch this. i've got a whole bunch of dirt and sand and stuff on this carpet. look how this is able to truly pull up that dirt and deep-clean the carpet. look at this. and look how easily this swivels. it's no-loss-of-suction. amy, this is breakthrough technology, and this is why the rocket is truly an ultra-light upright. >> shark has been able to put
all the things i need to clean my house into one vacuum cleaner. >> the rocket completely takes care of everything in my house from top to bottom. >> this is it all in one. >> the rocket is ultra-light does more, cleans better, costs less, and never, ever compromises on deep carpet cleaning power. it really is incredible. >> i'm convinced if you try my new rocket ultra-light upright you're gonna love it. thanks for watching. >> announcer: introducing the revolutionary shark rocket, the world's first no-loss-of-suction ultra-light upright that can truly deep-clean carpets even better than a full-size, $400 dyson dc40. it's so versatile, it will change the way you clean your entire house! plus, the shark rocket goes from an ultra-light upright to a powerful, lightweight portable vacuum making it perfect for quick pick-ups no matter where the mess is -- on furniture,
