    Team USA To Be Decked Out in Uniforms Made in China

    Team USA To Be Decked Out in Uniforms Made in China | ABC News Blogs - Yahoo! News <-- clicky


    They are the pride of America - Team U.S.A. - and for the opening ceremonies of the Summer Olympics in London, they'll be proudly wearing red, white and blue, from beret to blazer.

    The classic American style - shown in an image above - was crafted by designer Ralph Lauren.

    But just how American is it?

    When ABC News looked at the labels, it found "made in China."
    Does it get any better than this??????????

    Could be worse mate, your uniforms could have been designed by Stella McCartney...

    it was "absolutely" possible that the athletes could have been outfitted in U.S.-made clothing. She said U.S. manufactures could have easily made the uniforms - and for less.
    The sad thing is - there's nothing shocking about our team wearing clothing made in China.

    However, that doesn't change the stupidity of it either.

    The Chinese will be flying in on planes possibly invented in the US.

    so what-our table tennis team will be using equipment made overseas-often in China or Japan
    our tennis and badminton team's racquets are all made in China or Taiwan
    the Shooting team's rifles are made in Germany (Anschutz) the shotgun team mainly Germany (Krieghoff) or Italy (Beretta-Vince Hancock-defending olympic champion or Perazzi). The air rifles are German made-Feinwerkbau or Anschutz or perhaps Swiss-Hammerli
    our track team's shoes-God knows where-Vietnam, China,
    the swimsuits-I believe America
    NIKE Is the official competitionwear supplier-I own a bunch of nike stuff-mainly for tennis and table tennis-don't see much made in USA.

    China owns most of the US. I don't see why they shouldn't pay for the uniforms.

    of course some athletes will not be in NIKE but will be wearing USA gear. I know that the Skeet vests we had for the team were American Made

    some other countries use USA made leotards
