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?

My best friend's ten-year-old sister weighs close to that much, and she looks nowhere near fat. But even if you're shorter than most, I wouldn't worry about it until a lot later in your life, because kids tend to "grow into" their weight. BMI isn't always accurate, too, though; my BMI marks me as overweight, but I'm told by lots of people I'm average-looking.If you want to worry about it now anyways, I'd talk to a pediatrician or your parents or some other adult before taking action, and listen to any advice they may have. Made a typo first time around. Fixed it. First sentence said "weight" instead of "height".
