"There seems to be something of a hissy fit going on between the BOA and the agents of one of the sponsors of the London 2012 Olympics.
The agents of some competitors, who are sponsored by Nike, have told the BOA that athletes would be in breach of contracts if they are forced to wear Team GB’s official ”presentation outfit” which is sponsored by Adidas.
The agents have told the BOA that athletes might have to take off their shoes before mounting the presentation dais.
The BOA have hit back, and said that the rules mean that the athletes must wear the sponsor's (Adidas) footwear at all times."
The issue over footwear won't die down, the Telegraph reports that Aidan Kirkwood (a soldier injured in Afghanistan) was required to cover up the Raebok logo on his trainers with white tape when he appeared at an Olympic torch relay event this week.
There's the true "Olympic spirit" for you, money before sport or community spirit!
