Russia’s uniforms at the Sochi Olympics include track suits with the letters “RU” across their chests and velvet Opening Ceremony blazers.
The outfits were unveiled at a shopping center in Red Square on Thursday.
For the opening ceremony, however, more subdued black and burgundy velvet blazers with a Russian crest are in favor.
Overall, the Russian uniforms appear to be toned down a notch from the red-and-white swirled costumes that made several publications’ picks for the worst of London 2012’s wear. Both Russia’s London and Sochi uniforms were produced by Russian clothing firm Bosco Sport.
