GB Rowers get funky in ACAI Activewear

“We have both always loved living a very active lifestyle. Whether that’s training for a World Championship or adventuring during our holidays. We love pushing the limits and enjoying the outdoors.”

“There are so many reasons to love ACAI, but our top two are definitely their ethos and the way the clothes make us feel. Firstly, ACAI’s ‘Aspire. Aim. Achieve. philosophy fits so perfectly with our approach to life and our goals. Secondly, being an athlete means you spend a lot of time in activewear. Not only does the ACAI range make us feel strong and feminine, but also the clothes enable us to feel confident and comfortable when we are pushing our boundaries.’

Karen is an Olympic Silver Medallist from Rio and Holly is a World Champion. As a duo, they have won a World Cup Gold, a World Championship Silver, and a European Championship bronze. They are aiming to add another medal to their collection at the 2017 World Championships later this year. They are also currently training for the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020.
