Italian supplier furious over ban on brand names in caps

Olympics: Jaked issue threat in swim-caps row

(ANSA) - Rome, August 1 - A row over Olympic swimming caps between Italian supplier Jaked and the international swimming federation, FINA, reached a climax Wednesday. Jaked, the company that provides the costumes and caps for the Italian swim team, took out a full-page ad in Italian newspapers to protest a ban on its caps because they do not feature on a FINA list of approved ones "FINA had all the documentation showing that we have met all the requirements," said Gianluigi Cimmino, the chief executive of Jaked. The company said it is considering terminating its sponsorship agreement with Italy. He added that he travelled to London on Tuesday, hoping for an explanation of the ban, but got none.
