The history of Li-Ning

Li-Ning is the Chinese leader in sportswear and footwear, created by its founder, gymnast champion, Mr. Li-Ning 李宁 in 1990, with the simple aim of providing Chinese athletes with a national brand representing China on the Olympic Games world stage. That modest intention, nearly 30 years later, led to the growth of the company – a worldwide sports equipment industry.

Li-ning is constantly developing and researching the technologies of the future, to interact with human achievements in innovation, having unlimited potential for the excellence of its products.
