Welwyn Garden City sprint star Jodie Williams and Welwyn Wheelers lifetime member Laura Trott were on hand to help reveal the kit Team GB athletes will be wearing at this summer’s Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Designed by adidas creative director Stella McCartney; the Team GB and ParalympicsGB kit is said to be a ground-breaking range of performance wear, combining the latest in technical innovation with her signature modern design aesthetic.
The design features a British Coat of Arms that has been specially created to act as a unifying symbol across the two teams and multiple sports.
The new kit was created with consultation with athletes including 2012 Olympic and Paralympic medallists Trott, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Tom Daley.
Trott and Williams were joined by the likes of Ennis-Hill, Daley, Max Whitlock and Olivia Breen at the reveal of the adidas Team GB and ParalympicsGB kit at the Seymour Leisure Centre in Marylebone, London earlier today (Wednesday).
