Athletes understand that attracting sponsors is not an easy task (look at Simona Halep and Adidas) and it requires a significant amount of time and effort. Lately, in addition to these skills, a particular aesthetic and great personal style have become prerequisites for success. Especially for female contestants, athlete endorsements and sexy marketing go hand in hand.
