Nike and its connection to Greek Mythology
Nike was the goddess of victory whose attributes were associated with swiftness and force. She gives victory to those who deserve it. Nike was born to the Titan god of war, Pallas and the Naiad, Styx. She had three siblings, Kratos, Bia, and Zelus. These siblings along with Zeus fought in the Typhon war in which Nike led the troops.
The founder of Nike, Phil Knight,wanted to associate victory with his brand. So what did he choose, Nike! As Nike grants victory to those who deserve it, the company has brought success (and money) to many athletes. A few of these athletes are Christiano Ronaldo, Derek Jeter, and Michael Jordan.
