2008 Olympic Athletic Gear

Check out what the athletes from Teams USA and Canada are wearing to compete in the 2008 Beijing Olympics!

US Olympic Gear

Team USA. How cool is Nike? The official designers for US Olympians have made high tech track suits that shave fractions off races, breaking up drag from 12 to 19 percent! Meanwhile, athletes competing in the swimming events will be wearing Speedo's revolutionary LZR Racer that was developed with the help of NASA. Since its launch in February 2008, 44 world records have been broken by swimmers wearing the LZR Racer! Featuring the red, white and blue of the American flag, Team USA will be looking good even while sweatin' up a storm. Check out the American Olympic gear at www.usolympicshop.com,

Canada's Olympic Gear

Team Canada. Team Canada is outfitted in the first eco-friendly Olympic collection designed by HBC. Made of fabrics like bamboo, cacona and organic-blended cotton, it has moisture wicking properties that help keep the athletes cool in the Beijing heat. Since these fabrics were hard to find in Canada, they were sourced mainly in China, which is why they were made in China (much to critic's dismay). Made up of track suits, hoodies, T-shirts, shorts and headbands, the 2008 line keeps the Canadian spirit with maple leaves and red and white colors, but also pays tribute to China with an Oriental feel to the design. Unfortunately, the tapestry print is so busy and distracting that it borders on ugly. Plus, it looks more like a pajama set than a track suit. Anyone else think they should bring back Roots?

​Dear Dish-It,              I have a huge crush on this really cute boy named Austin. He is so sweet and shares many character traits as me. I am super worried since next year we have our first dance and I'm worried about if he'll ask me. But, that's beyond the point. His best friends keep telling me that he is madly in love with me so I really want to talk to him. I am so worried about what will happen though. We are already great friends and I don't want to ruin what we have no. I am so confused. Please, please help! :love :mad :sad PS. Did I mention that I have a HUGE crush on him?                        Sincerely, Love-Sick and Confused Youre worried about a dance for next year? ​Anyway, just talk to him, and maybe even tell him how you feel.
