Spanish Olympics Team Uniform: You Get What You Pay For

Remember that brouhaha over Team America's Olympics uniform? Well, they're super stylish when compared to what Spanish Olympians have to wear:

With Spain on the brink of bankruptcy, its Olympic committee decided to save money this year. It got its Olympic uniforms for free, from the Russian designer Bosco, which also provided kits for the Russian and Ukrainian teams.

But several Spanish athletes have taken to Twitter to express their distaste for the freebie clothes they're required to wear. After an outcry over U.S. Olympic outfits made in China, Spain's Olympians have a different gripe about their uniforms: They're just plain ugly. [...]

Spanish officials acknowledge that they chose the outfits because they were free.

Life lesson here? You get what you pay for! Link

Looks like a marching band outfit.

Why waste a bunch of money something as trivial as Olympic uniforms when your economy's on the verge of collapse? Maybe the athletes complaining could have tried paying for their own stylish uniforms?

Ana Gonzalez, Estrella Archs, Amaya Arzuaga, Custo Dalmau, Adolfo and Tiziana Dominguez, Felipe Varela, Sita Murt, Ágatha Ruíz de la Prada. These people couldn't contribute?

yeah, they aren't that appealing, but it's FREE, and the money was hopefully put towards fixing their economy. I think they should be happy that they weren't completely branded with coca-cola and other company logos.

I've gotta admit they hit the Spanish stereotype pretty close -- though they aren't quite as intricate as one might expect -- not bad.
