Nike's Awesome Uniforms for Athlete's Without Countries.
At the London Olympics, 4 athletes are competing under the banner of 'IOA' - Independent Olympic Athletes. These are athletes who hail from nations without official National Olympic Committees. And they have (IMHO) the coolest looking uniforms of any nation. I really want the shoes.
Nike created custom uniforms for three athletes from the Netherlands Antilles (who will compete in sailing, the 400m, and judo) that were worn during the opening ceremonies. They consisted of a custom M65 jacket and a pair of Flyknit running shoes, along with a scarf, which share a color scheme with the Olympic flag--better known by most of us as “the rings.” And don’t worry, the fourth IOA, the awe-inspiring marathon runner Guor Marial born in what is now South Sudan, still got all of his competition gear covered along with the others.
