Team India vice-captain and Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma has extended his contract with the global sportswear giant Adidas. The opening batsman has been associated with Adidas since 2013.
Speaking on his extended association with the brand Rohit said, “I feel Adidas is the best brand for athletes I truly believe in their products and the comfort and benefit they offer me in my sport. Further, they have continuously stepped in to provide customized solutions to athletes, including me, thereby helping us overcome many injuries.”
“It is the leading sports brand and has played a key role in promoting sports at grassroots, which includes providing world-class platforms and experiences accessible to amateurs and pro-athletes. I look forward to our association going from strength to strength.”
In 2018, Rohit and Adidas came together to join hands with Run for the Oceans, a global running movement that uses the power of sports to raise awareness about the threat of marine plastic pollution. Apart from Rohit, Adidas has elite pool athletes who have been part of the brand for years now. The list includes Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba, Gareth Bale, James Harden, and Naomi Osaka to name a few.
Adidas already has sprinter Hima Das, hockey player Manpreet Singh, and heptathlete Swapna Barman onboard. Rohit recently became the third fastest batsman along with former skipper Sourav Ganguly to have completed 8,000 runs in ODI cricket.
