Ã˜ystein “The Sausage” Pettersen has been noticed – no kidding! He has now been offered a sponsor contact from a sausage company.
Norwegian sprinter Ã˜ystein â€œThe Sausageâ€ Pettersen was the talk of the town following his PR stunt in DÃ¼sseldorf — for details see Oystein Pettersen ran naked in DÃ¼sseldorf.
Photos of his nude running after the World Cup sprint relay last month were published all over Europe. TV talkshow visits and a number of interviews followed after his return to Norway. A sausage company has now offered â€œThe Sausageâ€ a sponsor contract.
– It’s important to have personal sponsors, especially for me since I’m not on the national team, but this offer has to be cleared with my club team first, says Ã˜ystein Pettersen.
The company wants to make a sausage racesuit modeled after the Swiss cheese like the Swiss alpine team used a few years ago.
Pettersen is not revealing which sausage company has made the offer.
