Team GB is congratulated by dryrobe

Dryrobe are congratulating Team GB following the end of the events in Rio 2016.

dryrobe Ltd were an official supplier of Team GB kit, working with adidas to supply the diving, triathlon and swimming teams across both the Olympics and Paralympics.

The weather-proof, outdoor change robe was spotted throughout the Games and was worn by an array of leading athletes.

Most notably was Paralympian Ellie Robinson’s iconic entrance wearing a dryrobe, before confidently winning gold in record time during the 50M Butterfly final.

Her entrance in the dryrobe attracted attention across social media, being described as ‘gangster’ by some – but her choice of clothing captured the imagination of the watching public.

Gideon Bright, owner and creator of dryrobe, said: “What an unbelievable Games.

“We are extremely proud of Team GB for their continuous hard work and success in making the Rio games their most successful yet and we are honoured that dryrobe was chosen to supply the athletes, working alongside adidas, as an official supplier to the swimming, triathlon and diving teams.

“Since the development of the first ever dryrobe we have continued to develop a product that performs for athletes at the highest levels.

“Our performance technical kit has become well respected, and is used by some of the world’s best athletes.

“It is great to hear that the athletes were the people who instigated the talks which led to our collaboration with adidas for the Rio 2016 Team GB kit.”

dryrobe Ltd have also worked with a selection of organisations who have embraced the dryrobe ‘stay warm’ philosophy such as British Para-Swimming and Diving, GBR Lifesaving Team, USA Lifesaving Team, Various Red Bull events, The Royal Lifesaving society, Sport Relief challenges and many other reputable sporting and endurance focused companies and events.
