Maybe it is because it is the Olympics, but it seems to me that every country should be wearing uniforms and using equipment produced in their own country not just the United States of America. I understand the argument of using items supplied by other countries if in fact a provider doesn't exist in a country, but that claim about our uniforms isn't true. They should be ashamed. In one newscast I saw a businessman saying we don't make clothes in this country anymore so it didn't matter then the next person interviewed was the owner of a struggling clothing manufacturing company from New York saying why didn't they use an American company. I guess NY isn't part of the United States any longer.
