Before the Match
All athletes are familiar with chafing, and London’s lingering layer of dampness guarantees discomfort and probably some odor. Bálla Powder is a multi-purpose agent designed to keep every corporeal hotspot dry and fresh. Simply pat down your groin, lower back, armpits, or feet with a handful of powder before a tough workout or race.
During the Race
Runners know all about watching the clock, so we wouldn’t be surprised if a few Olympians were already sporting rumbaTIME’s lightweight VanDam GO. A consummate multi-tasker, this sleek, digital timepiece stores identification and health information, plus a discrete mobile payment system. Load it up with cash and you can leave your wallet behind on your training runs.
In the Locker Room
A long day of competition leaves the body exhausted, dehydrated, and achy. Whether you’re Phelps, Armstrong, or Bolt, you’ll want to follow your shower with more hydration. Skin gets thirsty too, and Jock Soap’s Tall Drink Body Hydrator is the equivalent of an epidermal power smoothie. Just apply a generous amount to dry skin after toweling off. Finish with an even layer of J.R. Watkins’ Peppermint Foot Salve, which softens and protects feet—at least until the next workout.
