Those XXL track suits

2016-08-23 06:00

IT is so good to see our South African athletes doing so well at the Olympics in Rio.

Special congratulations to Wayde van Niekerk for breaking the 400 m record — what a brilliant achievement.

But what a pity about those dated drab tracksuits. It appears that the management dug into the archives from 30 years ago and found old stock, and all in size XXL. We looked ridiculous, with some athletes pulling up their sleeves to be able to shake hands.

The apparel manufacturers have such stylish kits for most countries.

The South African Olympics team management should be taken to task.
