Name: Krys Tsankov
Interesting fact: I have a degree I carpentry
On sport: I grew up playing football and have been playing for about 11 years now. I was a professional back in Bulgaria and now I play semi-professional here in the UK
On activewear: I look for nice, stretchy materials and mostly I buy black. I try to buy nice fabrics so my body can breathe better
Favourite sporting moment: When Bulgaria came fourth in the World Cup in 1994. I’ll never forget this moment
Name: Jack Taylor
Interesting fact: I broke my nose playing football when I was nine, when me and some other young lad collided at the halfway line. I didn’t realise at the time. Many years later, it realised I could bend it quite grotesquely, a bit like play-dough. And I still can. I’m also a keen drummer
On sport: It’s a way to forget about any stresses that are floating around in my head. Badminton is my game
On activewear: I look for three things: simplicity, slim-fit, quality
Favourite sporting moment: The UEFA Champions League Final, 2005, when AC Milan were 3-0 ahead at half time. Liverpool launched a comeback and scored three goals in a six-minute spell and then went on to win in penalties. Me and Dad lost our marbles watching it
On sport: Football has a very special place in my heart as I grew up playing, watching and idolising the sport and its players
On activewear: I look for clothes that will keep me comfortable so breathability, good quality and endurance are key. As a goal keeper, this is very important to me
Favourite sporting moment: When Wayne Rooney scored the bicycle kick against Manchester City
Forget your everyday black pullover because this zip neck jumper comes in a light blue piqué finish that feels way more appropriate for the (slightly) warmer weather. It also features that innovative moisture controlling technology we mentioned earlier. This is sweat-proof, redefined.
