ASICS(R) TIGER CORP. AND VOLLEYBALL ALL-STAR BRYAN IVIE WARM UP FOR 1993 WORLD UNIVERSITY GAMES

 FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- ASICS TIGER Corp., well-known for its dedication to the sport of volleyball, is the 1993 sponsor of the World University Games. As sponsor of the World University Games, which will be held July 8-18, in Buffalo, N.Y., ASICS will outfit all World University Games volleyball staff members with ASICS athletic footwear, apparel and accessories.
 As part of its sponsorship of the World University Games, ASICS will bring to the event the 1992 MVP of the United Sates Men's National Volleyball Team, Bryan Ivie. Ivie, recently signed by ASICS to an exclusive two-year endorsement contract, has to his credit career highlights that include being named a Volleyball All-American by the NCAA in 1988, 1989, 1990 and 1991, as well as leading the NCAA in kills and blocks.
 This is the first time in the 70-year history of the World University Games that the competition will be held in the United States. The event will encompass 17 venues in Buffalo, western New York and southern Ontario. Next to the Summer Olympics, held every four years, the World University Games is the second largest international athletic event in the world. More than 5,000 athletes, accompanied by 2,000 officials, from more than 100 countries, will compete in the World University Games, considered by many as the top international amateur athletic competition. In addition, more than 12,000 volunteers from the Buffalo area have signed up to assist in the event.
 "Sponsorship of the World University Games will allow ASICS the opportunity to continue its role as a technical leader in the volleyball arena, as well as promote the sport on a global level," says Barbara Boskovich, ASICS volleyball promotions representative.
 Ivie, who will be arriving in Buffalo on April 1, will spend Thursday morning visiting a General Mills factory in Port of Buffalo, where he will meet with management, employees and media. Later in the day, Ivie will be conducting a volleyball clinic at a multicultural middle school in suburban Buffalo, which will be open to media. Ivie will be available for additional media interviews throughout the day before he resumes training in preparation for the games.
