Meryl Davis wants fashion and fitness brands to use actual athletes for their campaigns.
Just days after Bella Hadid scored a Nike campaign for their new collection, Meryl — who won a gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics — clapped back at Nike and Puma all in the same post, while giving praise to Reebok.
“I’ll take the one promoted by the athlete please,” Meryl wrote with a side-by-side-by-side with Bella, Kylie Jenner and gymnast Aly Raisman.
While JJJ is psyched for Bella grabbing a Nike campaign, we def agree with Meryl that fitness brands should show more athletes.

“I had fun. Maybe people weren’t being fair on social media, but that’s social media for you. I just found things to be positive about. And there’s a lot to be happy about. We won the gold medal as a team, and it was just such an amazing experience. I came to the Olympics and won a gold medal! That’s still really awesome. I can only do what I can do, and if people want to say their stuff on social media, I can’t stop them,” she explained to People.

Aly Raisman has said yes to going on a date with Oakland Raiders tight end Colton Underwood!
The 24-year-old NFL player asked the 22-year-old U.S. Olympic gymnast if she would like to double date with him and his teammate Andrew East, who married retired U.S. Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson back in April.
Colton‘s proposal came in form of a video (via Yahoo Sports) telling Aly that if she is “ever in San Jose and want to go on a double date with me and Andrew and Shawn, let me know.”
Aly then remarked, “They’ve actually told me about him before – he’s very cute. Yeah, I would go on a date with him.”
Following Colton‘s proposal, Aly took to Twitter to reach out to Colton personally, writing, “@Colt3FIVE thanks for the sweet video…. Looking forward to meeting you :).”
Colton then responded by tweeting back, “”Anytime! Looking forward to meeting you too. Safe travels back, see you soon!”
Aly added (in the video), “I’ve never done a long-distance relationship before, so I can’t really say, but obviously it’s more convenient if they’re closer to you.”
