Alpha Factor Olympic History Timeline
Alpha Factor is proud to have a long history of outfitting and supplying leotards for Olympic teams around the world! We were feeling a bit nostalgic as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the '96 games and anticipate the start of the 2016 games, so we pulled out our scrap book and took a look at our own Olympic "journey"!
