With all of the serious commentary and discussion that revolves around the Olympics we thought it might be useful to lighten things up for a moment.  Every Olympics new product is revealed on this largest of international stages, among them are the uniforms worn by the athletes.  In our sport the race suits have very practical purposes, but we are not considering those at this time.  This is all about fashion!  So what are the best and worst suits of this 2010 Winter Olympic Games?

    The best suit in my mind is far and away the German cross country suit, not the biathalon suit, that’s the one with the “glut support.” And my pick for the worst suit is definitely the Canadian suit, it doesn’t resemble the Canadian flag at all, and it is just repulsive in every way.

    Best:
    Germany
    US Biathlon (at least you could tell it was USA)

    Not so good:
    Czech R. – looks like one is wearing knee socks
    Norway – black knee/elbow supports?
    USA & Poland (all red) – trying to look like the Norwegians?
    Sweden & Italy – looks good if you ALWAYS wear white underwear!

    Bad dream:
    Canada

    What’s wrong with USA’s nordic suits? I love the silver chin and knee pads that they have, they look like futuristic football pants.
    Worst:
    Canada-Hands down the worst unies on the circuit, just strait up ugly
    Czech Republic–As boring as you can get
    France- Black? they look like UA long johns

    Best:
    1) Australia (aka Canadian Biathlon).
    2) Czech (distinctive, reflects flag).
    3) Estonia (white front, blue back)

    Worst:
    1) Canada’s old suits.
    2) Canada’s new suits. Salmon skin fallen under the barbie, kitchen fire, industrial accident.
    3) No one else comes close.

    At a distance, the German and Canadian suits are hard to distinguish. Up close, one is attractive and one is ugly.

    Sweden and Italy get points for transparency, but do we really need to be able to read the labels on the waistband of your underwear? And on warm days, we can see that some of the Italian men don’t just have hair on their heads.

    Justina’s Poland suit looks like she just cut two suits and sewed them together. France looks good up close, but is too subtle for television.

    From outside the nordic world, I think the US freestyle skiers get honourable mention for their new pajamas.

    I like the US and German once. I also very glad the Slovenian suit has changed the old one was painful to look at.

    Worst suit has to be Canada. I actually liked the old one unlike many pepole but the new one is just ugly.

    I really like the Czech suit but I wish it did not have that band around the leg. Sweden’s is also very nice and I actualy like the Polish suit although it took a bit of getting used too. But the US and French are my two favorites. The worst is Norway. I really liked their world cup suit but this one looks like it belongs in the 90s. Canada is pretty bad but I would love to see them on the podium.

    jlane: If you missed the comments surrounding the Swedish Craft suit of a few weeks ago, they are worth revisiting. I ‘m glad that the Swedish men won the relay for a number of reasons, but as it turns out they didn’t need the suit to do it. I have to disagree with one of your points, though. I think it would be good for the sport if the Swedish ladies decided to mix up the colors of their underwear. You can bet the television coverage of our sport would improve then (think: women’s triathlon at the summer games).

    The USST suit is ill fitting and boring and the Sweden suit is cool but too many things can go wrong in white. Nerve wracking for the women!
