Following its debut in February, Champion’s Muhammad Ali collection is now returning for a second limited-edition capsule drop. Coinciding with the Tokyo Olympics, the capsule’s new designs and fresh colors were designed to evoke the ethos of the sports legend during his inspirational gold medal win during the 1960 Games in Rome as an 18-year-old.
Styles include Reverse Weave® hoodies, quarter-zip pullovers, joggers, shorts, graphic tees, crop tops, bike shorts, hats, and a special satin boxing robe. The pieces have legendary quotes from Ali, including “I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was,” along with details based on the 1960 Games’ historic location and team uniforms.
“Muhammad Ali was an artist in the ring and a champion of the people outside of it, inspiring his fans across the globe to be their very best,” said Jon Ram, group president of global activewear for HanesBrands. “The second drop in this collection allows everyone from professional athletes to backyard sports enthusiasts and culture curators to truly be their own Champion by finding the joy in dressing for self-expression and feeling confident while being comfortable.”
To celebrate the drop, Champion will be making a donation to the Louisville, Kentucky-based Muhammad Ali Center, a non-profit museum and cultural center dedicated to honoring the man that meant so much to so many.
The second Champion Muhammad Ali limited-edition capsule will be available on August 4th. Prices range from $35 to $125 USD and sizes range from XS to 2XL. Catch the drop on Champion.com and Champion retail stores, with distribution in the United States, Europe, Asia, Mexico, and South America.
