The athletes will receive apparel from the CW-X Insulator and LiteFit lines, as well as financial support. The one-year agreement is effective immediately and will continue through Oct. 31, 2008. John L.A. Wilson, president/COO, of Wacoal Sports Science Corporation, and Darrin Steele, CEO of the USBSF, made the joint announcement today.
â€œCW-X is proud to continue our relationship with the USBSF,â€ said WSSC's Wilson. â€œNothing demonstrates product performance better than its use by an Olympian. The USBSF provides an ideal platform from which to introduce the brand to millions of cold weather sports enthusiasts.â€ We're glad for the opportunity to support these athletes and the U.S. Olympic team.â€
Steele added, â€œIn sports like bobsled and skeleton the weather can change on any given day along with temperatures. Since the USBSF first started working with CW-X three years ago, their apparel has always prepared our athletes to compete against the best in the world under any type of conditions.â€
