About Poppy Sports
Melanie Mitchell, a British expatriate living in the US, founded Poppy
sports to launch in 2010. She has competed in swimming and running events
as well as triathlons on both sides of the Atlantic and has always
supported the premise that being active is not a chore but is a lifestyle
choice and that the right clothing can help any women to make that

She comments, "whether you are a competitive triathlete or just preparing
to put on a pair of running shoes for the first time, at Poppy Sports we
will always have something in our bag just for you."
Located in Denver, Colorado in the US, the company will donate a portion
of profits to organizations that encourage girls confidence and
participation in sports.
