I, Candace Rose Anderson miss the Summer Olympics. There I said it, it wasn’t easy but I did it. I miss cheering on Gabby Douglas, Ryan Lochte, Missy Franklin, Misty May-Treanor, Kerri Walsh Jennings, and of course the greatest Olympian of all time, Mr. Michael Phelps. If you were as addicted to the games as I was, I’m certain you remember seeing Michael jamming to music on his headphones prior to every race. Am I right? Well, now you can bid to own a set of the 21 SOL REPUBLIC headphones he wore just before every race at the London Olympics and give back to the Michael Phelps Foundation “which focuses on growing the sport of swimming and promoting healthy and active lives for children.” The eBay auction started at noon September 4th and will end on September 14th at noon PT, so there’s still more than enough time to pick up a pair and give back to those in need!
“Music has always been a big part of my life – it helps me focus and inspires me for every race,” said the most decorated swimmer in history Michael Phelps. “I’m a big fan of SOL REPUBLIC headphones’ sound and I like the colors and how you can change them up. I’m excited to partner with SOL REPUBLIC to offer the headphones I wore before every race exclusively on eBay to benefit my Foundation, which helps me to support the next generation of swimmers.”
