Nike's Phil Knight
Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong says Phil and Nike have stood beside him through career highs and lows—like doping allegations—as well. "[After] winning the tour, a lot of people ask questions, a lot of people say, 'How?' A lot of people have serious questions, and these guys never flinched," Lance says. "I'm so very appreciate of that, and it's been a great partnership."

Lance's partnership with Nike is also the force behind the Livestrong yellow wristband. Proceeds from bracelet sales benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation, which provides support for people affected by cancer. To date, there have been about 80 million yellow wristbands sold. "Through this partnership, Phil and Nike have helped Livestrong raise $93 million to help fight cancer," Lance says. "That's nearly a quarter of what we've raised in our entire life span."
