I am excited to have been chosen as a brand ambassador,” said Haiti Track and Field Olympian Samyr Laine.

“We are really excited to have Samyr Laine represent J.J. Threads internationally as our first brand ambassador. We believe that shirts should look and feel great — our innovative customized design approach ensures that everything is tailored for the individual. Samyr’s athletic strength and philanthropic commitment to Haiti speaks internationally and is inspiring. We wish him the best of luck at the Games.” said J.J. Threads Founder Jay Wich.

Samyr Laine competed in the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and has since competed in four IAAF World Championships and set the Haitian national record in the triple jump in 2009.
