Kim Kardashian’s Skims has been named the official undergarment and pajamas brand for team USA at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
“Ever since I was 10 years old, I’ve heard every single detail about the Olympics from my stepdad,” the 40-year-old reality star captioned her post Monday on Instagram. The comments were noted by Page Six. (RELATED: FLASHBACK: Caitlyn Jenner Said Every Trans Person Should Have An Opportunity To Compete In Sports)
“As I would watch the athletes compete, I would grow to understand the dedication and honor being a part of the Olympics embodied,” she added. “I traveled w my stepdad and family to all different cities for the Olympic trials, the Olympics and track meets of @caitlynjenner’s and at every stop I would buy an Olympic t-shirt as a souvenir.” (RELATED: PHOTOS: Kim Kardashian Goes Out In NYC Wearing Blazer And Sheer Bra)

Her post concluded with a message about how her brand will design the “official team USA undergarments, pajamas and lounge wear for the athletes” in Tokyo as well as the Paralympics, the outlet noted. It has since gone viral with more than one million likes.
While there has never been a team’s official underwear provider, athletes from our country will also be wearing Ralph Lauren uniforms, which they have done every year since 2008, Page Six noted.
