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.

  • Shalom; to think what the Israeli delegation had to endure even before the opening ceremony, when they were planned to be seated in the same bus with the Lebanese delegation. The head of the Lebanese delagation blocked with his body the entrance to the bus. The Israelis, although not happy about the situation had no problem to go together with the Lebanese. The Lebanese wouldn’t have it ( and we are talking about athletes in the Olymic games??). The Brazilians decided to take the Israelis in their private cars. OK. Hello? Security? Finally a bus was brought for the Israelis, and with this stress they arrived to the opening ceremony.The next day the Lebanese head delegation was reprimanded and said ” it was only a misunderstanding” . For sure. As for the Brazilians, a nation of over 200 million very nice people, someone had to think that just by sharing the same border doesn’t mean you’re the best of friends. And still, the Israeli were voted for good sense of fashion.?
