Jack Eyers, holder of the 2017/2018 Mr. England title, recently visited the Adidas flagship store at the Racecourse Shopping Complex in Colombo.
He was accompanied by Jack Heslewood and Zachary Oldershaw, first and second runners-up of the Mr. England competition.
Eyers became the first amputee to win the prestigious Mr. England title and has become an international icon for his support of disability rights and showcasing positive living in the face of adversity.
A sought-after international male model, Eyers made history in 2015 when he became the first disabled male model to take the catwalk at New York Fashion Week, and more recently at the 2017 London Fashion Week.
“The Adidas brand is all about pushing the boundaries and not being constrained by perceptions and believing that sports – and any passion – can change your life,” said Fouzul Hameed, Managing Director of Hameedia, holder for franchise in Sri Lanka.

He has made the world see that you don’t have to limit yourself because of disabilities and that there are no boundaries to what can be achieved if you have the passion and the drive. That passion complements the Adidas philosophy very well.”
