Crap Olympic Outfits

Why so many variations ?
(wah shields up)

Because of all the different sports? Track Athletes want lycra, swimmers want the latest stuff from Speedo, tennis players want baggy clothes with pockets for their balls :), football and hockey players want strips. Competitors who spend their time standing in direct sunlight might want hats that cover their neck; others might just want a baseball cap.

That's just the sports-specific competition kit; there's also the stuff you need when travelling to and from the sports venue (tracksuit, possibly rainwear, a fleece or two, a daysack), maybe some kit for hanging around the Olympic Village (t-shirts, polo shirts) some formal kit (blazers/slacks/shirts/ties for receptions, opening ceremonies, and so on), shoes, hats, etc, etc.

When they get issued their kit, they'll also have a couple of rather large sports bags to carry it away...

It would seem there is to be no national identity using the colours of the British flag. This is what I would expect bearing in mind the assumed influence of parent and the Coe fellow who, I believe, seems to run it all for his own benefit.
