Nike Found a Way to Squeeze a Swoosh Onto the Artificial Legs of That Double Amputee
Is there anything that Nike won’t put their SWOOSH on? This seems crazy, even for them.
Over the past few days, Oscar Pistorius from South Africa broke new ground as the first double amputee to compete in the Olympics against ‘able-bodied’ athletes. He made the semifinals in the 400-meter sprint using special carbon fiber blades as prosthetic legs. And a close-up photo of them shows that Nike managed to get a tiny swoosh on them.
The funny thing is the blades aren’t even made by Nike. The blades are made by a company called Ossur, but the spikes on the bottom are made by Nike.
