Huge thanks to Electric Ireland for refurbishing one of their premises to ensure a positive athlete experience at “kitting out” .
Over the next three weeks athletes and performance support personnel will be able to collect their New Balance Olympic Kit for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and receive additional items from Electric Ireland, Kelloggs and Proctor and Gamble .
See Oliver Dingley (Diving) receiving his New Balance gear this week.
