Team USA IN Rio 2016


Recommended Posts

Heh. I think the tops are fine (I kind of love them, actually). I just hate the shorts and boatshoes. Even khakis would have been fine.

Yea but that look is very American.

My main issue is the shorts. It would probably be smarter to wear pants and long sleeve shirts because of the whole Zika virus thing going around.

I can't see if the men are wearing long trousers or shorts. The "bermuda" as we call here is very carioca but I don't know if is appropriate for men during the ceremony, unless you are from Bermuda delegation. :P Anyway, I liked.

I'll largely pass. South Korea's Zika-preventive outfits just aren't part of the Ralph Lauren plans for Team USA.

They can go naked to the parade and the chance to get zika here during the winter is zero. The diseases are seasonal. They should be worried about the vaccination of the athletes against the H1N1 virus, our main problem during the winter. I work in the health sector and I know that zika is terrible but in my oppinion, the South Korea uniform seems more marketing than concern with health.

Not sure RL makes cargo shorts....

Under the Polo line yes, but not under their purple label, which is the higher casual line. They also have cargo shorts in this RRL line I've never heard of. It's pretty step in price for something so casual.

BTW, if anyone is interested in buying the Olympic line here it is

With swimming trials complete, the full roster. Plenty of first-time Olympians:

I think this is a bit of a simpler read of those who qualified.

Man didn't know there was a 2 per nation rule in each swimming event as well, similar to artistic gymnastics! I find that horrendous considering in track & field nations get to have at least 3 per event.

Did Phelps not compete in the 400IM?

He did not. Smart move on his part to drop his most grueling event. This likely also allows him to march in the Opening Ceremony since his first swim won't be until Sunday (if he's a part of the 4x100 relay team) or Monday (heats of the 200m fly)
