I know the money is in sponsorship, but does anyone here actually use products because their favorite runner endorses them?
Yes. The week after Jenny Simpson got gold in Daegu, I bought some NB 890's for just that reason, and I would have liked them even better if they said "Barringer" instead of "Baddely" on the side. They're actually decent trainers too.
I'll also pledge that if any American gets gold in London from the 800m up, I'll go out and buy a pair of whatever brand of shoes they endorse and think it is money well spent.
