Local Athlete Featured In Lululemon Promo

December 17, 2013

A photo of Bermudian Olympian Arantxa King was featured in a product promotion for athletic apparel company Lululemon Athletica. The company, which was founded in Canada in 1998, operates approximately 200 stores and rang up $1.4 billion in sales last year.

Ms King said that thanks to her older sister, a Lululemon representative saw that she was wearing their gear for a few competitions last year. The company loved that she wore what is normally considered yoga and casual wearing apparel for her athletic competitions, and thus were eager to get her in to take some photos.

The photo was taken a few weeks ago in Union Square in New York City, which is the location of one of the most popular Lululemon stores in the United States.

She finished in 36th place in the 2008 Olympics, and powered her way up to a 13th place finish at the 2012 Olympics.
