Team GB Olympic kit unveiled


The TEAM GB Olympic and Paralympic kit for the London 2012 Games was revealed at a ceremony at the Tower of London today (March 22).

Designed by Stella McCartney, the kits were created to cater for all the 26 Olympic sports.

Daughter of Beatle Paul, McCartney said: "Something that was very important to me was to try and use that very iconic image (the union flag) but to dismantle it and try to soften it, break it down and make it more fashionable in a sense.

"I think that it's so recognisable that I was able to play around with it a little bit and take it out of its comfort zone. Dismantle it, break it up into different parts and different colour forms and then bring it all back together and bring it back into the flag."

She added: "You shouldn't have to sacrifice style for sport."

Six sporting kits will be available for public release in April which are athletics, basketball, cycling, football, swimming and tennis.
