Nike isn't sponsoring other NCAA female track athletes?
Yeah I am a bit confused by this too
I don’t quite understand this but think it is great. Nike sponsors Florida but this keeps her with the swoosh (probably rules out her transferring to a non Nike school)
I remember talking to an agent friend I have about Chez. They said why would Nike offer him a contract when he is already running for Nike at UO?
She signed an NIL deal with Nike. Previously Nike signed Charles Hicks to an NIL deal, but Parker is their first female runner. Similarly Adidas signed an NIL deal with Katelyn Tuohy. It means they they get paid for their name, image, likeness promoting Nike in ads/social media posts, but can still retain their NCAA eligibility (not fully going pro)
She is going to earn more than any distance runner in history.
The NIL deals at first really confused me but not so much anymore. Rather than throw major bank at these athletes, you throw them a smaller amount of cash and get them for a trial run.
But I have no idea how much less these deals are than if they were full time pros? Does anyone know? Do they get 25%, 50%, 75% of a normal contract? I have no idea.
Let's hope she got at least 20k ;)
Agreed. But she won’t touch Livvy Dunne.
Can't wait to see her in Nike ads. Valbymania is slowly sweeping the nation! 2023 NCAA Outdoor 5,000m Champion! Soon to be 2023 NCAA Cross Country Champion, 2024 NCAA Indoor 5,000m Champion, 2024 NCAA Outdoor 5,000m Champion, and NCAA 5,000m Record Holder! World Class! Generational Talent! Astroloser the Drug Accuser goes home devastated!
You need better reading comprehension skills, Rojo. He's confused that she's saying she's the first athlete, not about the deal's workings itself.
What don’t you understand? They are paying her. They’re not paying other girls
that second pic is questionable.

What are you questioning?
The second pic is actually the coolest. Looks like from a magazine photoshoot
Whether he wants Parker to step on him or not
Valby will soon be known across the entire world as . . . THE PEOPLE’S CHAMPION !!!
If it's true that looks sell, Nike just made it's best investment since the Air Jordans
No, they’re not. This is the first Nike NIL deal for a female NCAA track athlete.
