olympicuniforms

Jamaica has been a stand out country in the Olympic Games since it has been the home of the famous athlete, Usain Bolt. Bolt is the only man to win and retain both 100m and 200m men’s titles in consecutive Olympic Games.

In the 2008 Olympics, the Jamaican team showed up to the opening ceremonies wearing bright yellow jackets and black pants. Personally, the jackets look like yellow raincoats from afar and all the team is missing are umbrellas and rain boots! Up close, the jackets are trendy, but the color kills the design. Most importantly, there is no green in these uniforms and Jamaica fails to incorporate all of their nation’s colors.

All countries stepped up their game in 2012 (except the U.S. – but we will get there), but Jamaica sure did show up looking top notch! Bob Marley’s daughter, Cedella, designed these edgy uniforms for the Jamaican team. For a country with the World’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, they better be looking sharp! Sure enough, these are some of the best uniforms yet. Not only do they look fantastic, but they succeed in capturing the Jamaican culture as well.
