Japan Unveils Paris 2024 Uniforms

TOKYO: Japan’s official apparel for the Paris Olympics and Paralympics was unveiled Wednesday, with 100 days to go until the Olympic opening ceremony.

The bright red tops are inspired by the French capital’s sunrises, while the use of recycled materials contributed to a 34 percent cut in greenhouse gas emissions in their manufacture, compared to those for the Tokyo Olympics three years ago, according to clothing supplier Asics Corp.

Gymnast Daiki Hashimoto, won two gold medals at the Tokyo Olympics, attended the day’s press conference in Tokyo with other athletes, including volleyball player Yuji Nishida and boccia player Takayuki Hirose.

Asics said the jackets, pants and other items athletes will wear on the podium and at news conferences would have the amount of carbon dioxide emitted during production stamped on them, in a nod to the green goals put forth by the host city.

The team’s warm-up suit jack shows 8.8 kg of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e) were emitted in its production while bottoms show 5.5 kg of CO2e.

The Tokyo-based company said it reduced emissions on the official uniforms by about 34% from the last Games in Tokyo by using recycled and lighter material as well as renewable energy at its factory in Japan.

The Paris Olympics will be held from July 26-Aug. 11.
