Kinesio @ the Olympics キネシオテーピング@オリンピック

With this years Beijing Olympics well on its way, Kinesio® couldn't be more excited. With 204 countries participating in this years Summer Games, Kinesio Holding Corporation, as a whole, has donated the now very much so, world-famous, the one and only, KinesioR Tex Tape to over a quarter of these countries attending. Since the games began and with the catch phrase "tattoo or tape", Kinesio Taping has been featured on NBC, MSNBC, Popular Science, national and international media and print publications, as well as national and local TV stations. Mrs. Walsh, if your are listening, I would like to take you and your husband to a nice seafood dinner upon your return!!!

As we all know, the Games are a huge event with tons of media coverage. With the assistance of all our great supporters, we have compiled what we feel is the best that we have seen thus far below. Keep checking back with us as new coverage is added on a daily basis.
