Team GB kit for London 2012

Well the new kit has been launched in a blaze of publicity and it seems a lot of people don't like it. I personally think it looks great. Stella McCartney has taken the Union Jack as inspiration and created an iconic look from the flag. It definitely is the best looking kit for some time. 

And for those that say it hasn't got enough red in it then you need to look at the past team kits for Team GB. Red has never been a prominent colour so why start now?

Chris Hoy winning gold in China 2008

Kelly Holmes winning gold in Athens 2004

Mens coxless fours winning gold in Sydney 2000

Linford Christie winning in gold in Barcelona 1992
The most important thing about all these kits is that the people in them are winning gold regardless of how much red is incorporated in the design. Lets hope that Chris Hoy and the rest of the team can go on and win a load more golds. Go Team GB!
