On December 5, Latvian Olympics Committee presented the official uniforms designed for Latvia’s athletes for Sochi winter Olympic Games 2014.

The uniforms for Latvian athletes were manufactured by OT Stils specifically to be used during Sochi winter Olympics 2014. Bars equipment manufacturer also provided Latvia’s athletes with its manufactured goods. Warm winter clothing was provided by the Finnish Halti sports equipment company.

Clothes intended to be used for leisure, free time and parades were designed and produced by fashion artist Natalija Jansone. The general design was created by Gvido Zalitis.

This is the first time when a line of designer clothes was also manufactured for fans as well.

The 2014 winter Olympic games will be held in Sochi, Russia. Latvia’s official Olympic delegation could have as many as 60 athletes. Most of them are still in the process of qualifying for the Olympics.

It is also reported that the tender for the supply of winter coats, jackets and thermal underwear had caused a scandal earlier this autumn. It was originally said that Latvia’s delegation would dress in orange colours, even though it had been previously said by the supplier that the colour was to be yellow.

The Finnish Halti OY company was declared the winner. This is because it was the only participant of the tender. Halti OY will supply up to 200 items of 18 different sets of clothes for LVL 154,031.
