USA Today Ranks Israeli Team Among Best Dressed Athletes at Olympics
Israel’s team of athletes wore some of the best outfits during the parade of nations at the opening ceremony of the 2016 Olympic Games on Friday night, according to a USA Today list.
Israel ranked among the news outlet’s list of 17 best-dressed Olympians. “That’s how you do athletic jackets with style,” the newspaper said, describing Team Israel’s garb in blue and white, the colors of the nation’s flag.
Other countries that scored were Mongolia, which the newspaper said displayed “bright, colorful, and a touch of amazing design on the women’s skirts,” and India for the “gorgeous” saris worn by its female athletes.
Israel sent its largest-ever delegation to compete this summer in the 2016 Olympic Games, The Algemeiner previously reported. Team Israel consists of 47 athletes competing in 16 sports.
