Professional track and field athletes want to be with a company that fully supports them as people and will treat that person with dignity and respect. Many of these athletes are not dropped, but chose to go to a company that they could stand behind and support 100 percent. A company they could feel proud representing. I am one of those athletes that wanted to represent a company I believe exhibited ethics. That company for me is Asics. Many others have had amicable splits with their former so they could sleep at night knowing they have been true and honest to who they are and future generations. Nick Symmonds, Lauren Fleshman and myself are just a few athletes who took a stand to help better our sport.
