Fact #425: Puma and Adidas were founded by two German brothers who got into a fight and divided their company.

Rudolf Dassler created RuDa (later renamed Puma) and Adi Dassler created AdiDas. The brothers never resolved their fight and are buried in the same cemetery, spaced apart as far as possible.
