Team GB Kit for London 2012 Olympic Games
As you can see clearly from the design, the colours are primarily black and blue, it is this that has a country divided and very much debating many factors surrounding the kit.
The most obvious thing to debate is the colour, the Olympic Games is Country against Country and each team member that competes, in whatever event is there to represent their country and do the best they can, with the sole goal of brining home a Gold Medal. Almost every country that competes in the games does so in the colours of their nation. The USA would wear red white and blue, in fact I can remember one Olympic Games where the USA Team Kit was practically the Stars and Stripes flag. African nations wear their brightly coloured kits also, but the key here is representation.
Of course some people are not interested in the colour of the kit, so long as we do well and bring home Gold, what does it matter and ordinarily I would be inclined to agree, but on this particular occasion I don't. This is our Olympic Games, London 2012 is our time to shine as a nation of England, Scotland, Wales and N Ireland, the entire British Isle should be red white and blue ready to welcome all the other wonderful nations competing in the games.
Next thing up for debate is whether or not Stella McCartney or any other fashion designer for that matter should have been appointed to design the kit, rather than the more traditional sports company such as Nike or Adidas? I am the last person in the world to comment on fashion, I dress like I have been dragged through a hedge backwards. However in this image Stella McCartney, international fashion designer, is posing for the photo with Olympic team members in what looks like her PJ's, doesn't really install a lot of faith.
What are your thoughts on the kit, does it matter what the colours are? or is it just about the winning that matters? I'd love to know your thoughts.
