FIGS to Outfit 250+ Team USA Healthcare Professionals at the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games

The agreement through LA28 honors the “team behind the team” that supports athletes and provides premium care not only in the most important moments of their career but every step of the way.

SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–


We wanted to choose only the most high-quality apparel for our world class medical staff,” said Peter Zeytoonjian, SVP, Consumer Products of The U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Properties (USOPP) and LA28. “Which is why FIGS will continue supporting the Team USA Medical Team through the highly anticipated home games here in Los Angeles.”

Driven by the pursuit to spotlight the selflessness and determination of healthcare professionals, FIGS’ support of the USOPC highlights the Team USA medical staff, who go above and beyond to care for elite athletes leading up to and during the Games. The collaboration recognizes the team of healthcare professionals who support athletes in the pursuit of their personal best.

In celebration of the 2024 Olympics & Paralympics, FIGS is unveiling a limited-edition, Team USA-inspired collection that will be available for online purchase. The spirited line uses a palette of red, white and blue and is inspired by the strength of the medical team behind every Olympian and Paralympian. Staying true to FIGS’ core values, the products feature functional innovation to meet the high standards of today’s healthcare professionals. The collection includes distinct Team USA Medical Team emblems and branding.

We are thrilled to embark on this journey with Team USA, marking a significant milestone in our shared commitment to support our invaluable healthcare professionals,” said Trina Spear, CEO of FIGS. This joint initiative is truly inspiring and we are honored to stand alongside Team USA and the USOPC in our commitment to supporting the Awesome Humans at the 2024 Summer Olympic & Paralympic Games.”

To commemorate this milestone, FIGS will launch a 360-degree, omni-channel campaign in July. As part of the campaign, FIGS will host an event for the Team USA healthcare professionals in Paris where medical staff and volunteers will be honored for their work. For healthcare professionals not in Paris, FIGS will host a celebratory Team USA event in New York City in July.

We are excited to enter into this relationship with FIGS, with an ultimate goal of recognizing the amazing medical staff that works tirelessly behind the scenes to support the world’s greatest athletes – both on and off the field of play,” said Dr. Jonathan Finnoff, Chief Medical Officer, USOPC. “We look forward to working closely with FIGS through 2028 to ensure that we continue honoring these incredibly talented and committed professionals in the years to come.”
