The Australian Olympic outfits were revealed yesterday, a classic a green and gold uniform. It’s been developed by Adidas and apparently it’s the lightest and fastest team uniform ever worn by the Australian team. Well, some of them aren’t going to wear much at all, so no wonder it’s light.
There’s not much of it. It’s like a little bikini. In a way, it still feels like your skin, so it’s kind of like you are naked. – World Champion 100m hurdler, Sally Pearson
Adidas will outfit close to 800 Australian athletes and officials during the London Olympics. Sallys’ tiny gold top and green shorts are only two out of the over 80,000 items of apparel and footwear Adidas have developed over the last 18 months. And here I thought the Olympics was about the sports. Silly me.
