History of the product
THE FLYING FINN T-SHIRT
Nicknamed "THE FLYING FINN" Paavo Nurmi, like his co-patriot Hannes Kolehmainen, "wrote Finland on the world map while running"! Paavo Nurmi had an ideal morphology for a long distance runner: he measured 5.7 feet for 143 lbs. In terms of training, Nurmi was self-taught. He was one of the first high-performance athletes to adopt a systematic approach of training based on three elements: walking, running and calisthenics.
In 1924, within six days, Paavo Nurmi won five gold medals, three personal and two per team. Paavo Nurmi achieved his most legendary victories in the 1500m and 5000m, both finals taking place in less than two hours! The French magazine "Le miroir des sports" then wrote about Nurmi: "Paavo Nurmi goes beyond human limits".
