The inspiration for our new running tank top comes from Sunday 21 May 1950 and the Stockholm City Relay. The race was a thrilling duel through Stockholm with a jubilant audience along the streets cheering on the runners. It was an even race and Ymer was by no means the favorite in the relay. When it was time for the last distance over 5 km, it turned out that Gösta Jacobsson from our team IK Ymer, was up among the top three teams.
When the runners turned into the Stockholm Olympic Stadium
, the audience was ecstatic. Now it would be decided! Gösta was very strong and fought down the other runners and our team managed to win the entire Stockholm City Relay. The finish is classic as the leader Sten Bussqvist opens his arms at the finish line to receive Gösta Jacobsson.
