776BC is proud to announce an exciting new partnership.
776BC has recently been appointed as the official compression supplier for the Australian Sailing Team and Australian Sailing Squad, which will see 776BC share the team’s journey over the next 4 years.
London 2012 represented unprecedented team success for the Australian Sailing Team, taking home three gold and one silver medal as Australia’s most successful sport. Furthermore, the Australian Sailing Team added another gold medal at the 2012 Paralympic Games.
Heading into Rio, the team has a strong combination of returning, new and developing crew combinations and according to the Australian Sailing Team's Performance Director Peter Conde, “The standards for our team are very high. Just to get in you have to be a world-class performer. If you are in the top ten in the world you are already a potential medal winner for 2016 and that’s what we are working for. All of these athletes know how to win and they know what to expect at the games, they know how to operate under pressure and they will represent us.”
As the official supplier of compression performance/ compression gym wear, 776BC will provide the Australian Sailing Team and Squad with a range of technical performance garments to meet their training and recovery needs.
776BC looks forward to sharing the journey with this incredible group of athletes.
