Nike has unveiled their new track and field’s uniforms for Team USA with Olympic legends Carl Lewis, Jackie Joyner Kersee and Michael Johnson.

The uniform has been changed from vibrant blue to power red which allows Team USA to pop from anywhere on the field.  These uniforms use technology of Nike’s Project Swift Program which creates garments to maximize athlete velocity. The uniforms have been tested and could withstand 1,000 hours in a wind tunnel. The uniforms are dimpled which reduce the aerodynamic drag of the athlete.  Even the cutouts on the back are strategically placed so they are as aerodynamic as possible. [Fashionista]

The worlds will definitely be watching!
