CLEAN ATHLETES | CLEAN CLOTHES
At the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008, it took us a clean 42.54 seconds to win a Silver Medal. That Silver medal turned into Gold, when the winning team was disqualified due to a failed drug test. While it is abundantly clear that dirty athletes have no place in sports, we are less outspoken when it comes to the clothes we wear while performing. Clean athletes should also wear clean clothes!
