The German Olympic team’s uniform has drawn criticism from some athletes and social media users in the country and abroad.
“Who is responsible for this uniform?” Olympic basketball player Maudu Lu said on the Instagram application. The German team wore a green uniform, with an expensive jacket and phosphorous shoes above it.
His teammate Nils Jevi agreed with him, and asked the Adidas sportswear company and the German team, “Who thought of this?”
The uniforms worn by the German team at the opening ceremony did not impress the netizens either.
One person wrote on the social networking site “Twitter”: “No one can take away the gold medal for the ugliest outfit,” and another added, “You can count on the lack of good coordination of the German team’s clothing at the Olympics.”
The controversial outfit also appeared in the BBC’s live text
“BBC” for the Tokyo concert, and “BBC” quoted what one user said: “After watching the live script on the highway. I tried to describe how bad the German dress was for my wife, who was driving, words could not describe!
Adidas defended itself, stating that the uniform was made with the German Olympic Committee, and received positive feedback when it was officially introduced two months ago.
