Dissecting Other Countries Olympic Uniforms!

Are you ready for some the Olympics? Or, more importantly are you ready for some Olympic performances? As I mentioned last week, the uniforms reveal a great deal about countries and how they want to be seen by the world.

Tomorrow is the Opening Ceremonies, which marks the beginning of the world's largest spectacle. So we took a moment to give a preview some of the team uniforms. It should be noted that the Olympic rules state that a country can not wear the same uniforms to two consecutive uniforms. Depending on the uniforms that rule may actually do some countries a favor.

Which nation do you think has the most fashionable uniforms at the games?

adidas went with a traditional look for the German uniforms.
The Australian uniforms are all about performance and bring home some medals.

Way to get things off to a good start. Supermodel Kristy Hinze helped launch the formal team wardrobe for Australia.

Distinctly Kiwi, New Zealand is taking a laid back approach to the countries Olympic gear.

New Zealand Launches Olympic Clothing Range

The Beijing Olympics are about to kick off, but some Canadians are predicting one medal loss for our team: Best Formal Team Uniform. Reaction to their look and the fact they are manufactured in China has not gone over well with citizens.

It was only fitting that Spain held a fashion show in Madrid to show off the new formal team wardrobe.
