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?

Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family
