In a recent pic I saw of Anna she was decked out in ZHIK wear from head to toe. In the Olympics, (and leading up to it) she was wearing Magic Marine stuff. I wonder if ZHIK paid more money or if it is a personal choice?
Most athlete contracts, if the sport is in the Olympics, are based on the Olympic schedule and will expire right afterwards. I used to work with for a ski company and my contracts with athletes always expired right after the Winter Olympics. We'd essentially have 1 and 2 year deals and for the good athletes, we signed them up 2 years prior to the Olympics to go through the event as it has the most exposure to the general public.
even though id love 2 talk about the hot zhik model but i do believe that anna was wearing zhik hikers with her magic marine gear, but im not 100% positive.i just checked the zhik site and she is a team member.
