Helmet for the games:
@Dan you can have it for 300k Starwood points :)
I kid, this one isn't for sale 😂
Usually I have the shema...echad and I'm tirtzu on my helmets, and the character is shimshon to show that Israel is a strong Nation under all circumstances. No quotes are allowed on the equipment we the olympics though so Samson it is.
This is awesome. If you can wrangle some Jewish/Israeli press over the course of the Olympics, you can make some money doing merch like this.

Bobsled is a team sport. Asking other Israelis/Jews to spend their life's savings for 8 years, throw away their careers, and go from wet/cold/anti-Semitic towns to other wet/cold/anti-Semitic towns, without any income... Wasn't going to happen.
Yup, that's like getting a bunch of Jamaicans to do it. Never gonna happen...
-oh wait, scratch that.

On a more serious note, this is awesome. I'll be rooting for you!

Reselling Skeleton equipment is a low margin business 😆. The helmet plain cost 650eur.

I meant the image on a t-shirt, things of that nature. Think of the way a lot of these youtube stars go about it.

Shimshon would have had to suffer the indignity in that moment of probably being stripped of his clothing. And he was a strong dude (with amazing hair, presumably) so I think the portrayal isn't so bad 😊
Besides, yidden can be strong muscular guys, why not.

You mean he wasn't wearing a streimal?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

We camped out in the desert for 40 years. We're I'll equipped for sprinting 😂. But shouldn't we be great at endurance sports then...🤔

I'm not sure how much of that amazing hair was left at the time he brought the house down, but this is a depiction that just about anybody should understand with needing any explanations.

For some reason i kinda doubt depicting him with a shtreimel and peyos would quite work so well.

Fun fact, when I trained in Jamaica this summer I stayed in the home of the mother of the main brakeman on that 88 team, Chris Stokes. It was hellishly hot and mosquito bites like mad, but it was all for the cause. Or so I think.
