The Telegraph reports on the effort to topple the sportswear market leader by the German brand:

Nike is currently market leader in the UK with an 18pc share of the ultra-competitive £4.3bn sportswear market. Adidas is in second place with a 15pc share, but hopes that its status as official sportswear partner of the Games will help it achieve its goal of overtaking Nike by 2015 at the latest.

As well as kitting out the athletes in 25 of the 26 Olympic sports – equestrianism requires very specialised equipment – Adidas will dress the 70,000 Olympic volunteers, provide the outfits for the pre-games torch relay and create clothing for the athletes to wear in the Olympic Village.
