NEW YORK (AP):

With a crisp, white graphic look and roomy pockets, the uniforms to be worn by Team USA at the closing ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics were unveiled on Wednesday by official outfitter Ralph Lauren. The uniforms, along with Ralph Lauren-designed Olympic Village attire for the American athletes, had been ready to go when the Games were postponed last summer due to the pandemic. The Games are now scheduled to open on July 23 and end on August 8 as organisers continue to figure out how to hold them with the pandemic still raging and less than 100 days to go. We’re excited to see what each country will wear on the world stage.
