With the Diamon Jubilee being celebrated through fantastic events this weekend, and the Olympics coming up later this year, 2012 is all about celebrating everything British! A true British product, MacWet gloves we were pleased to see our gloves on the hands of royalty last week in top UK newspaper, The Daily Telegraph.
One of our very own British gems, Zara Phillips is in contention for the Equestrian GB team for this year’s Olympics and has been practising hard to ensure her place.
On May 23rd, MacWet gloves seemed to be the gloves of choice for Zara as she was pictured wearing the gloves whilst exercising her horse, High Kingdom in the Sports section of the Daily Telegraph.
Later that same day, Zara rode her horse Toytown for 300 yards with the Olympic torch in front of screaming fans at Cheltenham Racecourse. Zara joins her mother, Princess Anne as one of the Olympic torch bearer’s on the flame’s route across the country. Zara hopes to follow in her Olympian mother’s footsteps and take part in the London Olympics this year.
Zara obviously knows the importance of great grip and sensitivity and trusts MacWet gloves to perform when she needs them the most.
MacWet wishes Zara Phillips the best of luck on being chosen for the GB team this year!
