U.S. Olympic Uniforms Made in China, Lawmakers React
"[Russian Olympic team representatives] said they didn't want anything that was made in China," American Apparel CEO Dov Charney told The Post. "It's not just for the uniforms—it's also the merchandise." Charney added that the USOC had not approached his company, well known for its domestic manufacturing, about creating apparel for Team USA.
This is not the first time the USOC has raised eyebrows with its sponsorship agreements. In 2010, the USOC signed German automaker BMW as a Team USA sponsor when General Motors was forced to withdraw sponsorship for financial reasons.
