Rio 2016 Olympics

Recommended Posts

With the Rio games a few months out, and the fact that I love the Olympics, I thought this would be a good time to start a thread for all things Olympic uniforms and logos. 

Yesterday the IOC unveiled the medals:

I just imagine a lot of "I survived the Rio Olympics" gear given the Zika virus and the horrible water-born bacteria there.

What a mess down there. Sad part is there's really no other option here. They could postpone the games... but how long would that take?

 

And any talk of either cancelling or moving the games elsewhere should be thrown out the door right now. Does anyone realize how much of a pain it is to prepare for the games? That's why it takes 4 years to prepare!

I hope the US doesn't use this logo for everything.

So those basketball uniforms that Nike unveiled a few weeks back, are those the uniforms for Rio?

I wasn't sure if these were just placeholders to show off the new technology or are these the Rio unis?

They can't use it. It's the federation logo so it can't be used.

Those are indeed the Rio unis. The color versions can be seen here (red for the women's team, blue for the men's team):

That's an actual press release from Team USA? Seems like an odd place to make a SJW stance on them wearing skirts.

 

Love the logo though. I want something with that on it.

So, the women's soccer team is wearing an all-white strip with a plain USA crest at the Olympics. Anyone have an idea about the second jersey?

Same as the current secondary kit except with the USA on the chest instead of the federation badge.

So, black with the crummy blue and red raglan sleeves?

Why this whole BFBS thing?

The Olympics are finally here! Today soccer matches begin before the official start on Friday. Sweden is taking on South Africa. Sweden's kits are almost yellow gradient to lighter yellow or white.

Correct. But there are ways around that little irritating rule.

Only England has done it for some reason. It's a silly rule since officials wear the governing body patches don't they

Does anyone know where I can find some mockups of all the real 2016 Rio basketball uniforms/jerseys?  I'm looking to make a bracket for the Olympic tournament using the jerseys.  I will make them myself but just thought I would put it out here and see if someone has done them or seen them posted online somewhere.  Really I just need the front of the jerseys like the ones shown below.  (Nice work by the way Moom)

What do you guys think of Brazil's lime uniforms? I love both fluorescents they use, one of the few countries that can pull of such color-vibe sets!!
