Did you Know?
Did you know that Adi Dassler never travelled outside of Europe? Hard to believe that the boss of the worlds biggest shoe company never did, but it's true. Dassler was most at home surrounded by his family, co-workers and athletes. He shunned the limelight, avoiding press conferences, functions and public appearances - leaving those tasks up to others in his company. Actually he had planned to visit the USA in 1978, but never lived to make the trip. His daughter found his U.S. visa in his personal papers shortly after he passed away aged 77.
