Kinesio @ the Olympics

A donation of our Kinesio® Tex Tape Gold™ for the 2008 Summer Games created a groundswell of support by Olympians from around the world. The presence of Kinesio® Tex Tape on their bodies led to publicity on television stations such as NBC and MSNBC and print publications such as Sports Illustrated, Men’s Health, Popular Science and Runner’s World.

Since the Olympics ended, many imitation tapes have tried to take credit for this Olympic phenomenon. Check out the links and images on this page to see which tape Olympians trust with their bodies.
