Kenya’s kit for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo Japan has been unveiled and some Kenyans are not impressed. On Wednesday, Nike officially unveiled the uniforms its sponsored athletes will wear during the 2020 Olympics.
The big reveal showcased the kits that will be worn across all sports including U.S. basketball, skateboarding, track and field, and soccer. According to a statement issued by National Olympic Committee Kenya President Paul Tergat, the uniqueness of the design reflects the vibrant culture of Kenya.
He also explained that the Kenyan colors on the Kit are a symbolic representation of the countries Olympic success.
“The Kenyan colors as represented by the newly designed kit launched today are synonymous with our Olympics success. Our athletes have colorfully dominated the track and our boxers have left a mark on the ring at the Summer Games for decades.” reads statement
Some Kenyans, however, disagreed suggesting that the design is horrible and makes the outfit seem too busy.
Well well, too busy though but the design is perfect. Napenda za mikono https://t.co/lKdlZtWYnO
