The agents of some competitors, who are sponsored by Nike, have told the BOA that athletes would be in breach of contracts if they are forced to wear Team GB’s official ”presentation outfit” which is sponsored by Adidas.
The agents have told the BOA that athletes might have to take off their shoes before mounting the presentation dais.
The BOA have hit back, and said that the rules mean that the athletes must wear the sponsor's (Adidas) footwear at all times.
There seems to be too much money and too many corporate egos involved with these games.
As noted many times before, the Olympics are about money not sport!
