As the step-daughter of one-time Olympian champ Caitlyn Jenner, the games hold a special place in Kim Kardashian’s heart, so much so the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is collaborating with Team USA for a new SKIMS line.
Kardashian announced the news on social media, revealing her SKIMS company would be designing the undergarments, pajamas and loungewear for the female athletes on Team USA.
“Ever since I was 10 years old, I’ve heard every single detail about the Olympics from my stepdad,” Kim shared on Twitter. “As I would watch the athletes compete, I would grow to understand the dedication and honor being a part of the Olympics embodied.”

“I traveled w my stepdad and family to all different cities for the Olympic trials, the Olympics and track meets of @caitlyn_Jenner’s and at every stop I would buy an Olympic t-shirt as a souvenir,” Kim recalled.
“When I received the call inviting Skims to be part of @TeamUSA, every moment I’ve spent admiring the strength and energy of the Olympians from the sidelines came full circle,” Kim told fans.
