The Grotesque of The Spanish Olympic Uniform Causes Athletes Joke

The uniform of Spain for the Olympic Games It is already in the hands of the athletes that are going to wear it during the next few days in London. The reaction was expected: the horror. My colleague Di by Dior already put us on notice in its day and now plays suffer.

In the image above we see to Saúl Craviotto, Spanish canoeist, who yesterday was news on Twitter to pose as “ model ” with the new equipment. 5,573 retweets after until the same are surprising hours later. His comment was:

In house testing me Olympics clothes! I better not think, leave you & #8230;

Another Spanish athlete, Alex Fábregas, field hockey player, also posed with the Olympic equipment and left this message:

Olympic Equipacio, outdated adjectius els…

When in the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games XXX, on July 27, exit all the national team dressed in the uniform and Rafa Nadal as standard-bearer the grotesque can be maximum.

Meanwhile, Alejandro Blanco, President of the Spanish Olympic Committee, stressed again that this equipment is chosen for more than one year and a half.

This kit has already gone to the summer and winter Youth Olympic Games and the European youth games. We have been since the year 2010 as well.

What matters are the athletes, not its equipment, as he himself said at a press conference. Words that we will remember July 27.

Then the comparisons are odious, but in Britain they know the importance of the international image that will project and in the closing party already has been known that will be some of the best supermodels of always and two great designers. A very different view to transmitting the Spanish Olympic equipment.

I’ll take the Power Rangers yesterday’s joke on Twitter as a summary of this story.
