BEIJING - From mass-consumer goods to high-tech professional sportswear, China's top sports brand Li-Ning made a change to focus on the top athletes when they announced here on Wednesday their partnerships with Australian sportswear specialists Skins by launching superior-quality Li-Ning Skins gradient compression sportswear in the Chinese market.

Li-Ning Skins gradient compression sportswear integrates advanced technology to provide powerful support to professional athletes and sports lovers alike, offering them a brand new sports experience.

He Chong, men's 3-meter springboard champion in Beijing Olympic Games, tried the new sportswear for the first time and did not want to take off.

"I felt uncomfortable at first when I put on the clothes because it's too tight, but now after one or two hours, I feel comfortable and I don't want to take it off," He said.
