Mizuno Presents New Olympic Family Uniforms
During the meeting of the IOC Session yesterday, Mizuno, an official supplier to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), presented the uniforms that will be worn by the members of the IOC and the IOC staff in Turin during the XX Olympic Winter Games - Torino 2006. The uniforms were presented to the members and staff of the IOC by the President of Mizuno, Mr Masato Mizuno.
Mizuno is kitting out the IOC members and staff for the Winter Games with a 13-piece ensemble including winter jackets, pants, vests, turtle-neck shirts, fleeces, hats, scarves, gloves, bags and footwear. This means a grand total of 8,200 individual items of clothing will be supplied by Mizuno to the members and staff for the Turin Games. The clothing, in blue and red, has been specially designed to resist the vagaries of the winter season and will make the members and staff easily identifiable in and around the Olympic venues.
Mizuno, the official sponsor of the 117th IOC Session, also provided a four-item package consisting of polo shirts, bags, caps and footwear to the IOC Session organisers for use by IOC members and Session staff. The President of Mizuno also presented IOC President Rogge with a donation that will be used for humanitarian work through sport.
