The daughter of late reggae singer Bob Marley will design Jamaica’s track and field uniforms for the 2012 Olympics, German sporting-goods maker Puma AG said.
“I can’t think of a better person to design our Olympics outfits than Cedella,” said Usain Bolt, the world-record holder in the 100-meter and 200-meter sprints. “She’s a great designer but also carries on the spirit of our nation.”
Europe’s second-largest sporting-goods maker extended a sponsorship contract with Bolt in August until the end of 2013, making him the world’s most highly sponsored runner, the company said. A month later, the company said its “Bolt Collection” was sold out worldwide.
