See The Uniform Team USA Will Be Wearing At The Opening Of Rio 2016 Olympics

Russian representation may be thin in Rio next month thanks to the country’s doping scandal, but those back in Moscow will be able to see the Russian flag on another big delegation.Ralph Lauren and the United States Olympic Committee unveiled the outfits American athletes will wear in next week’s Opening Ceremony on Friday morning and it didn’t take long for some to notice they might be better suited for athletes representing another country.
