Christmas is only 22 days away, and if your Christmas wish is to become a world-class athlete, the Cayman Islands Olympic Committee (CIOC), can at least help you look the part.

Jennifer Powell, CIOC Chief Operating Officer, says “it’s a really good time to get a gift for Christmas or a little keepsake from Rio, the games we just got back from.”

The CIOC annual Christmas sale where the public can pick up anything from pins to the official gear worn by Cayman’s Olympians.

“We got a lot of foot traffic in here and we are running out of a lot of sizes of the more popular items. We’ve probably raised more than $3,500.”

It’s all the goodies picked up from previous international games.

“Every year we have a games. Some years we have four games were we have a lot of gear coming in which is 2018, but after a year like Rio we try to get a lot of extra gear so all the gear is fitting the athletes and the team that we send, so we tend to have a lot more extra.”

Those extra items are running as more shirts, hats, shoes, bags and pins leave in goodie bags.

Powell adds, “probably not everything [will sell] which is fine, we also use the gear to donate to some of the younger sports teams that might not have the money to afford it.”

Perhaps, your Christmas wish of being an Olympic athlete, just may come true.

The fundraiser sale will continue from this week till December 19.
