Nike unveiled the official uniforms that the athletes will wear in Brazil when they collect their medals, including jackets and pants emblazoned with the official Team USA Olympics logo. The jacket has ribbed sleeves to provide breathability—collecting gold medals can be a sweaty affair, after all—while the pants are designed to give athletes more mobility.

“The medal-stand uniforms for the 2016 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams epitomize Nike’s unmatched innovation,” said Lisa Baird, the United States Olympic Committee chief marketing officer, in a press release. “Nike has perfectly blended strength, style and patriotism. When America’s finest athletes are standing proudly on top of the podium, they will represent all Americans with a sense of style and poise.”
