Spain Olympic Uniforms

Spain Olympic Uniforms - Every Olympiad, there's some nation whose kit gets universally mocked or debated for its fashion sense. The Czech Republic sparked an "eyesore or awesome?" controversy at the Vancouver Winter Games for its migraine-inducing multicolored camouflage.
But it's rarely the athletes representing those nations that take part in the mockery … unless you're Spain, whose Luchador-meets-McDonald's employee look has received shock and awe from its Olympians.

On the left is Saul Craviotto, a gold medal-winning canoeist, who tweeted this image of him in Spain's Olympic garb and offering a "no comment" about their look: "I leave it up to you."
(OK, if it was up to us, we'd say he was being attacked by a school of radioactive jellyfish.)
Retired tennis player Carlos Moya said, via Twitter: "Looking forward to seeing [tennis player] Feliciano López wearing the official Olympic uniform. He'll never have worn anything so ugly in his life."
Field hockey player Alex Fabregas tweeted the photo in the right, with a request to his fans: "Spare the adjectives ..."
Our first inclination was that these outfits were designed by a hyperactive child with a kaleidoscope; actually, they're the work of Russian firm Bosco, the designer for Russia and Ukraine's teams that donated these clothes to the Spanish Olympic Committee without compensation.
