Athletes have been promised a good night's sleep after the Spanish Olympic Committee (COE) signed an agreement with M Line that will see the Dutch firm supply mattresses and pillows at Rio 2016 and Pyeongchang 2018.
Under the agreement, M Line will provide 500 mattresses and 500 pillows for the Spanish Olympic team, including coaches and officials, at the Athletes' Villages in Rio for the 2016 Summer Games and in Pyeongchang for the 2018 Winter Games.
In addition, M Line will work in collaboration with the Medical Commission of the COE to develop products that will provide the maximum level of support and comfort for athlete's bodies.
The agreement was signed between COE President Alejandro Blanco and M Line President Anthonie Hilbert Anbeek.
M Line, which stands for Motion Line, is a leading designer and manufacturer of mattresses and pillows, and it says that "if you sleep better, your physical and mental condition will also better".
The firm has worked with trainers, doctors and physiotherapists in the past to develop products that meet athletes' needs.
