The Jamaica Olympic Association & PUMA Unveil Olympic Apparel For London 2012, Designed By Cedella Marley

Jamaican track runners Shevon Stoddart and Usain Bolt unveiled the Jamaican Olympic apparel for the London 2012 games designed by Cedella Marley the eldest daughter of reggage music legend Bob Marley.

“It is truly an honor to design this collection for my home country and my home team,” said Cedella Marley.  “It’s not even a dream come true because it’s something I never dreamed would be possible. I ran track in high school in Jamaica and I’m still a huge fan of Jamaican Athletics, so to have a role in creating the outfits for our Olympians is a thrill. I admire what PUMA has been doing in Jamaica over the years and the Marley family has the same type of give-back philosophy. I think this partnership is going to be legendary.”
