Nike USA medal stand and apparel

For the first time Nike will offer three distinct outfits to be worn on the medal stand at the London 2012 Olympics. Athletes from different sports will receive different kits, each of which takes a contemporary approach to classic silhouettes.

“The medal stand is a pinnacle moment for these athletes,” said Global Olympic Creative Director, Martin Lotti. “The world is watching and we want to make sure the athlete looks and feels good in celebration of their achievement.”

The kits include Blazer Mid LR, Flyknit Trainer+ and Air Force 1 Lo/Slim sneakers paired up with classically designed tech pants and jackets from the Nike collection.

US tennis and wheelchair medallists will wear Nike 21st C. Windrunner, Nike Bowerman Tech Pant, Nike Flyknit Trainer+.

The 2012 US Olympic Tennis Team will consist of up to six men and six women, with a maximum of four men and four women competing in the singles competition and a maximum of two men’s and two women’s teams competing in doubles. The US will also be able to place a maximum of two mixed doubles teams in the competition, which will be contested at the Olympic Games for the first time.

The tennis tournament starts on July 28, and runs through Aug. 5.

Wednesday marked 100 days until the Olympic Games and events were held around the world to celebrate the countdown to the Opening Ceremony Parade in London.
In New York City, the US Olympic Committee transformed Times Square into an Olympic Village for the exclusive unveil of the U.S. Olympic Committee’s new “Raise Our Flag” program. Fans were invited to join U.S. athletes for the Team USA Road to London celebrations. As part of the festivities, Olympic competitors across a variety of sports provided a sneak peak of Team USA’s Olympic fashions designed by Ralph Lauren.

The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic closing ceremony parade uniforms and village wear were unveiled in a Today show segment.

Olympic taekwondo medalists Diana and Steven Lopez revealed the men’s and women’s Closing Ceremony parade uniforms.
The women’s closing ceremony uniform pairs a white button-front blouse (emblazoned with a red, white and blue Team U.S.A. logo and the label’s Big Pony logo in navy) with a knee-length skirt that also buttons down the front to create a shirt dress look. The men’s version pairs a similarly logofied white button-front sport shirt and white pleat-front trousers, and both outfits are accessorized with silk repp-stripe belts in red, white and navy blue pattern, that, for the women, also appears on a silk scarf that ties at the neck.

Olympic decathlon champion Bryan Clay, Olympic swimming champion Rebecca Soni, 2012 Olympic gymnastics hopeful Aly Raisman and three-time Olympic water polo medalist Tony Azevedo modeled from the Ralph Lauren village wear collection including the mesh polo, Create Your Own USA polo, Olympic tank and tunic.

The opening ceremony looks will be revealed later on; in the meantime, selected pieces from the Ralph Lauren 2012 Team USA Olympic Collection are already on sale at RalphLauren.com.

During the Olympic Games, Eton Manor will have temporary training pools for participants in Aquatics events. It will have three 50m pools for swimmers, and smaller pools for synchronised swimmers and Water Polo players.

It will then host Wheelchair Tennis during the Paralympic Games, and remain a training facility for Aquatics competitors. There will be nine competition courts and four warm-up courts. The total of 10,500 seats for spectators will include a 5,000-capacity show court.
