Icebreaker wants to see What's Next to Your Skin
Feb '10
Icebreaker, the New Zealand company that pioneered the outdoor merino wool apparel category and the official base layer supplier to the 2010 New Zealand Olympic team, has launched their “What's Next to Your Skin?” online competition. The contest starts on Opening Day of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and takes place daily throughout the Games, with a Grand Prize drawing on March 2.

To enter, contestants simply have to email a picture of what's next to their skin – be it an Icebreaker base layer, a tattoo of Mom, or anything else.

www.icebreaker.com/whatsnexttoyourskin and there will be a daily drawing for Icebreaker gear – including sustainable underwear like Nature or Beast and more.

Icebreaker's “What's Next to Your Skin?” contest wraps up on March 2 with a drawing for the Grand Prize: limited edition Icebreaker Whistler '10 gear.

During the Olympics, Icebreaker will keep the New Zealand athletes warm – and cool under pressure – as they wear natural, sustainably produced New Zealand merino garments and accessories. As the official base layer supplier of the 2010 New Zealand Olympic Committee, Icebreaker is providing the 15 Kiwi athletes competing in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games with its Bodyfit base layer garments, including three different tops, leggings, socks, gloves and scarves. The team began wearing its Icebreaker in late October when it met for the Winter Games in Central New Zealand.

The featured Bodyfit+ base layer garments the team are wearing is from Icebreaker's new Bodyfit+ range, and features an all over black and white camo print made up of the two main islands of New Zealand.

New Zealand has participated in the Winter Olympics since 1952. It won its first and only medal in the Winter Games in 1992 when Annelise Coberger took won silver in alpine skiing.
