Is that right? Tom Daley might as well go with a man-kini, I would say... would that thing be allowed on the beach in Sunderland?

    hah - the only "issue" I see is that mortals will buy the "kit" and wear it "with pride" despite the fact that most of it will be obscured by overhanging bellies! ;)

    Microscopic swimming trunks aside, that design is pretty bad. It looks like they couldn't decide on one design so just threw them all on.

    I thought Mark Spitz had a low cut, but it's nothing compared to Tom Daley's...

    And it seems they've included pyjamas this year, looking at the lady on the right.

    You can see the cycling bodysuit on the right in this pic.

    I thought the same of the last olympic kit. At least this one is Red/White/Blue. Trouble is they have given the job to a fashion designer who seems to get the olympic kit ticket coz of who her dad is.

    What would really be cool is to go retro and just have Red/White/Blue band across the chest on the tops. Classic.

    well I actually quite like the track cycling kit because the darker colours mean the "fake" coat of arms thing doesnt detract so much from it...but I dont get the "fake" coat of arms thing, or why Stella has to design it...though I do think alot of people have missed the point that Rio isnt quite the same temperature as Great Britain.

    I don't think it looks that bad but it's not very distinctive - modern GB kits seem to be designed to look OK if you used the design on some casual/sports wear rather than something bold that stands out and looks striking whilst being used in the Olympics. So it's inoffensive but not great - 5 out of 10.

    Its a kind of hybrid 'The New Avengers' and 'Charlies Angles' design, and I quite like it for that.

    I think it will be a grower, especially when we win medals in it.

    I will be getting my wife another ladies crop top like Jessica's
    There will be no belly hanging underneath slowbike.
    I think her abs look better than mrs Ennis-Hill's in that photo tbh :wink:

    Not so keen on the Paralympic overcoat though!
    (Sorry for the Sutton'ism :oops: , just being topical lol).

    If Tonia Couch is wearing the same kit it would make the diving more interesting.

    It's amazing how similar Tom and I look in our speedos. And he's still only 22! He's been around for ages.

    If you mean that "Stella designed the coat of arms", she didn't. It came from the College of Arms.

    Let's be honest: a hessian sack would look good on those two

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    No green in it to represent Wales once again.

    You've got some red, and should be grateful! :wink:
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Don't Wales and Scotland compete in their own name or is that something else? Also I think one international thing Yorkshire ended up with the most medals out of home nations so perhaps we should swap the lions for whippets and have them wearing floppy flat/cloth caps!

    Or just Yorkshire blue and yellow.

    You're thinking of the Commonwealth games, they're treated as being former colonies :lol:

    Eh? I'm a proud Welshman but I've never expected to see green anywhere on a GB kit. For that matter, I've never really associated it with Welsh kit either - very few Welsh rugby shirts have included green although it does make an appearance quite regularly in small measures on the football kit.
