In less than a year, Canadian athletes will compete in what started out as Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and will do so in style.
Team Canada and its Official Outfitter Hudson’s Bay have released the new team kit for next summer’s Games, which will be sported by our country’s Olympians and Paralympians and our Sarah Douglas, Sail Canada Team leader in Laser Radial is front and centre.
According to their material, The clothing included in the Team Canada Collection is not only stylish, but functional, featuring sweat-wicking, light fabrics to keep athletes cool and comfortable.
For each Games, Hudson’s Bay considers the host city climate. For Tokyo, that meant not only heat, but also rain and the use of air conditioning, which informed the textiles used and the style selections.
The 26-piece kit blends classic looks and street fashion with a Canadian twist. The kit has distinct looks for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies as well as Victory Ceremonies, when Canadian athletes who reach the podium receive their medals. There are also plenty of options for wearing around the Olympic Village and while cheering on teammates.
Sarah, who took some time out of training to model the kit, said “Wearing the podium outfit can help me picture being on the podium and winning a medal for Canada.”
