If you read our recent blog, Realizing Why Rio Tennis Really Rates High for Us, then you know we at Wristpect Sport are avid tennis players and fans not only of the sport of tennis but also of the Olympics.
This Summer Olympic games were more epic than ever! Wristpect Sport was blessed to have one of our wristbands worn by USA competitor Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Bethanie is known in the tennis world for sporting fashion like no other! In fact some lovingly call her the Lady Gaga of tennis.
Bethanie and doubles partner Coco Vandeweghe lost a close one to the silver medal team of Timea Bacsinsinszky and Martina Hingis.
Bethanie shown here with mixed partner Jack Sock made it ALL THE WAY to the top of the podium winning OLYMPIC GOLD!
Wristpect Sport is more than a little honored to be worn on the wrist of a Gold medalist! Much as we would like to think we helped, we know better than to think that our little sweatband had anything to do with Bethanie’s gold medal ways. Still, we can’t help but think wearing some USA Spirit albeit on your head, feet or your arms, didn’t hurt!
