Six-Time Olympic Champion Jabs At Supermodel Endorsed Sportswear
Supermodel Bella Hadid announced in an Instagram post Tuesday that she will be working with Nike and it’s already rubbed one professional athlete the wrong way.
Six-time Olympic champion figure skater Meryl Davis took a shot at Hadid after hearing the news. Davis posted three pictures on Twitter of Hadid wearing Nike, Kylie Jenner in Puma and fellow Olympian Alexandra Raisman sporting Reebok.

Bella is a world-famous supermodel and Kylie is mostly known for being a part of the Kardashian/Jenner clan and their reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Raisman, who is the farthest right in Davis’ tweet, is a three-time Olympic champion gymnast.

Although Davis has a point here with the athletic resumes of Hadid and Jenner both lacking, the brands they represent are worldwide and it’s safe to assume their marketing strategies seek to address that fact. Hadid and Jenner are both recognized around the world and happen to be in pretty incredible shape, even though you won’t see them in the Olympics anytime soon.
Even still, here are some pictures of Davis and Raisman that prove the Olympians are perfectly suitable to model for any brand of sportswear.
Maybe Meryl is trying to make a case for herself here.
