    The colouring of an athlete's clothes isn't going to make them jump higher, swim faster or run fast with flames behind them ...

    Unless, it's a team sport.
    And the colours blend into the background and cannot be picked out by team members.
    Remember the clowns at Old Trafford allowing the team sponsors to insist on the team wearing a Grey Strip a few years back? Epic fail. They just blended into the multiple colours of the crowd behind.
    Higher than Gods, in Concorde or a Mozzy.

    Did I ever say it would?

    She isn't really a professional fashion designer either, she just happens to have some singer as her father who sold a few records once...

    @paul178
    The thread? No, unfortunately it's not a joke. I don't think it's a big ask that the kit reflect the majority of the country, and it's not that difficult to do

    I thought I'd include a joke

    Not that I can actually name any of the songs, so I guess it's not so inaccurate, at least from my perspective

    I totally disagree - many factors go into giving a top athlete a winning edge, however slight, and mental state must be one of the most powerful.
    It's well known that humans are affected by colours - green in hospitals for inducing calmness, reds and yellows for warning signs, etc.
    Blue to me is a very passive, submissive colour, while red has connotations of aggression and danger.
    Colours of materials can also influence muscle cooling or warming in certain conditions...

    And having a uniform you are proud of can also affect performance.
    From all reports so far, the athletes are very proud of their uniforms. As they have to wear them, I submit that theirs is the final word. They're happy, so lets leave it at that.

    Besides, the uniform design has a lot more to do with Britain than that awfull 2012 logo.

    I probably recognise some of songs from overhearing them at places, though I wouldn't be able to name the band/song

    and I'm 25

    You won't see Manchester United in red shirts, when they're playing Liverpool at Anfield.
