FROM THE EXPERTS
Wayne Bird, CEO, Basketball Victoria:
"We’re excited about this new partnership with 2XU. As an internationally recognised high performance brand, founded and based here in Melbourne, 2XU is a great fit for our Elite Programs. We were extremely impressed with the range 2XU created for the Australian Paralympic Team for London 2012, and we look forward to developing something equally exceptional for our Victorian athletes competing on the National stage."
