Burton revealed its patchwork designs for the U.S. Olympic Snowboard Team on Tuesday.
“We’re really proud that the 2014 uniform builds on Burton’s legacy of creating fun, unconventional designs that stray from the formal, traditional look of most uniforms,” said Greg Dacyshyn, Chief Creative Officer at Burton Snowboards, in a press release. “The vintage quilt and flag print of the jacket combined with the corduroy pants give the uniform a ‘heirloom hippie’ vibe that lines up with snowboarding’s laid-back culture while paying respect to America’s longstanding creative heritage. It will stand out in Sochi for sure.”
The manufacturer partnered with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association for the third straight Olympics to make team uniforms.
This year’s uniforms include a patchwork quilt design with American flags. Burton said it found the original patchwork quilt at an antique fair and then made a replica design, weatherproofed, of course.
Great Britain track cyclists Jason Kenny and Laura Trott were married on Saturday, according to their social media. Together the couple has won 10 Olympic gold medals, including five at the 2016 Rio Games.
Trott referred to her wedding day as “the happiest day of my life” on Instagram.
“With all my family and close friends I married my best friend,” she wrote. “We had the most amazing day and I’m so pleased to finally be able call Jason my husband.”
The couple’s romance became public at the 2012 Olympics, when they were photographed kissing in the stands behind David Beckham at the women’s beach volleyball finals, according to Sky News. By December 2014, they were engaged. They plan on returning to training after the honeymoon.
Kenny owns seven Olympic medals, including six golds. He has helped Great Britain win team sprint gold medals at every Olympics since 2008.
Trott won gold medals in team pursuit and omnium in Rio, after claiming gold medals in the same events in London. She became the first British woman with four career Olympic gold medals.
Instead of asking for gifts, the couple set up a JustGiving page to raise money for Dementia UK. You can donate here.
