Bosco: Much More Than a Sportswear Brand

Bosco clothing brand, is known in Spain that was chosen by the Spanish Olympic Committee for the uniforms that wore our athletes during the 2012 Summer Olympics, in London.That choice was not without controversy. On the one hand it was criticized the fact that he had not been given that chance to a Spanish fashion company and secondly, the design of the equipments itself also received criticism. In fact, in the following Olympics, the 2016 Rio was the Spanish brand Joma which took care of the Spanish official clothes.
Bosco is a fashion firm well established in Russia, which has won both among athletes and the public in general and undoubtedly is high quality clothes and with a very original and extrapolable design beyond Russia’s borders, although in the Spanish case didn´t work so well.
