Vancouver BC January 12, 2006 – Vata Brasil, a new line of sports clothing designed by athletes for athletes, is the creation of local Brasilian-Canadian Freediving athlete Mario Gomes. The hi-performance sports wear is now exclusively available from the new boutique in Vancouver.
Gomes, his wife, who is also a world class athlete, his athlete friends and acquaintances spend a lot of time talking about their sports, searching for ways to improve their own technical performance and the technical performance of their clothing and equipment. Ananda Escudero Gomes, Mario’s wife, competed in the World Freediving competition in Nice in September where she was successful in placing 4th.
Gomes came up dry or more to the point naked, in his search for athletic wear clothing sponsors for the Canadian Freediving Team. He saw this as a great opportunity to design a line of athletic wear for all disciplines of athletics and fill the void he found, by supplying other Vancouver athletes with sexy, comfortable athletic clothing.
Athletes are demanding of themselves and expect the same performance of their workout wear. Constructed of FreeFit, a cutting-edge fabric that breathes, stretches and returns to the original shape, and dries faster than cotton, the sexy, comfortable designs have surpassed all of their expectations. The construction of comfortable, tough wearing workout wear is a science in itself. Seams must be strong enough to withstand tension when the fabric stretches and flat enough to avoid chafing and riding up.
Connie Gallo, fitness competitor, and one of the featured athletes, says, “VATA's line of workout wear is truly motivating because the cut and the fabric highlight and define the physique that you work so hard for," she says. "They make you want to work harder to keep your body fit and healthy."
The newly renovated retail location at 420 Richards at Hastings exudes a bright, clean, sophisticated look and attitude that is in harmony with the simplicity and function of the clothing. The rough red brick wall that forms the back of the store sports huge posters of local female athletes modeling their favourite Vata Brasil styles.
Vata Brasil, athletic wear design by athletes for athletes, takes pride in their mission of supporting local athletes.
