As the countdown continues for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the British delegation are gearing up. Buro 24/7 Middle East has a glimpse at their Stella sportswear...

British designer Stella McCartney has just unveiled her sportwear designs for the British Olympic team. Designed in white, blue and red to reflect the colours of the Union Flag, the uniforms also feature a new Coat of Arms, to inject an element of national pride as team Britain take to the starting lines during the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Manufactured by Adidas, the fabric is reportedly 10 percent lighter that those created in 2012. Using the brand's new Climachill technology, athletes are set to excel with a more efficient uniform that is designed for breathability in the warm South American climate.
