Olympic goalie forced to remove Constitution from custom-made mask

The U.S. Constitution is not welcome on U.S. Olympic women’s hockey goalie Jessie Vetter’s custom-made mask during the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

The goalie was forced to repaint her mask in advance of the Olympics to remove the image of the U.S. Constitution and her last name, both which appeared on the back of the helmet, due to International Olympic Committee rules.

“No writings of any kind to promote the country is allowed,” Ron Slater of Slater Lettering and Graphics, who designed the helmet logo with Vetter, explained to InGoal Magazine.
