Anta sportswear

Though Li Ning and the Li Ning company were everywhere in Nanning, the Chinese National Teams were uniformed in 2014 by a competitor, Anta.

Here’s are some of the Anta store displays. Gymnastics is kind of a big deal in China.




When I tried to buy this t-shirt, store staff had to explain they were only for display. Not for sale.
