Skechers sponsors Anthony Famiglietti MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skechers has upped the speed quotient of its elite runner roster by signing two-time Olympian and six-time U.S. Champion Anthony Famiglietti to its team of athletes who race wearing innovative Skechers GOrun performance footwear. Fam, as he’s known in the running world, is working on being the fourth man in history to break a four-minute mile on the track after age 40. He got closer to that goal at The Running Event (TRE) in Austin in December by setting a treadmill mile global benchmark of 3:55 wearing the award-winning Skechers GOrun Razor 3 Hyper. And in January at the Endurance Exchange in Tempe, he established a two-mile treadmill global benchmark of 8:24 wearing the same shoes.
