Olympics Uniforms Interview

With the Rio Olympics now in full swing, we take a look at what it means to work at these events and to wear the all-important uniform.

Clothes2Order - Olympics Uniforms Interview

We spoke to Jane Dean, a 2012 London Olympic press operations worker from the New Forest area, and Leila Fitt from Cambridge who travelled to Rio to take part in the opening ceremony last Friday to explore their sentiment towards wearing the identifiable brand colours and logos, associated with such prestigious events.

'The uniform was a glorious shade of purple & red, and included two polo shirts, two pairs of slacks, a jacket, trainers, two pairs of socks and even a little cap.'

Jane Dean, 2012 London Olympic Worker

'There was a natural team spirit and camaraderie between the volunteers and staff, as there was an overall sense of unity and pride. The uniforms helped to make us all feel equal for a momentous occasion that was bigger than all of us and reaching an audience on a global scale.'

Leila Fitt, 2016 Rio Olympic worker

As well as working at the 2012 London Olympics, Leila is fortunate enough to have travelled to Rio, just recently to take her place working at the 2016 games. Leila Fitt says, 'I will remember these moments for the rest of my life. I've travelled from London to Rio to work for Samsung, I feel very lucky to have this opportunity.'
