With just under 100 days to go until the Olympics kick off in Rio, team Great Britain has released the looks for their athletes’ various states of dress, all designed by Stella McCartney in association with Adidas.

Or, in Tom Daley‘s case, undress.

The 21-year-old diver looked to be the chilliest participant on stage as he stood proudly in his Team GB speedo.

Track star Jessica Ennis-Hill said of the outfits, “It’s an amazing design and I think it will give British athletes a massive sense of pride and give us an edge in Rio.”

We’re not sure Tom’s speedo will give him any sort of competitive edge — it looks like the piece of fabric used for it was no bigger than a dinner napkin — but there’s no arguing whether or not he’s doing his country proud just by existing in it.

Also, if someone could please tell us who is standing on the left in the above photo we’d be much obliged.

Here a short video from the unveiling event:

    it’s sad really. reminds you of the old saying about how the size of a man’s speedo relates to the size of a man’s … manhood.

  • IDoNotHaveToAgreeWithYou

    How do you swim and keep that eyepatch on?

  • CalderBear

    The guy on the left? That is rugby sevens player Tom Mitchell.

  • barkomatic

    Gorgeous man. Olympic athletes should wear as little as possible.

  • Shofixti

    Sadly you can’t actually buy togs in this size, or anything even close to this style/design. At least not in Southern hemisphere. C’mon adidas….

  • scotty

    lol i get to use it again

    “diver down!”

  • scotty

    @barkomatic:

    agree. the nuder the better. like the original games n such. full nekkididdity

  • Billy Budd

    @scotty: Scotty is right. In the ancient games they used to compete totally, totally NAKED. They did shave their legs, by the way. It was totally hot and awesome.

  • DCguy

    Looks like the British teams will have to hire a team waxer.

  • Brian

    Speedos are supposed to be small. It’s to reduce drag in water. Thank goodness there are some men who still wear them. I heard that, in America, men wear these awful big shorts that look like they could be recycled to form parachutes.

  • Spike

    That boy is just so desperate to pose naked.

  • SteveDenver

    And he looks WONDERFUL!

  • Mack

    Love the look, but would have preferred there be a close up of him.

    While some swimmers wear the knee length suit like Michael Phelps, many still prefer the speedo.

  • robho3

    Damn I guess one of the qualification to be in that team is to be totally hot.

  • JamJewel

    @Brian: Worst that that, American swimmers mostly wear knee length BLACK speedos. Not sexy at all… never watch them… wait for the Europeans and South Americans to dazzle.

  • Jim

    Tom is just so fucking beautiful.

  • OzJosh

    @Captain proton: That’s not an old saying, and it’s patently – visibly – untrue.

  • SportGuy

    That rugby player should have been the one in the speedo! Never send a boy to do a mans job!

  • Doughosier

    He has a perfect body.

  • SportGuy

    @Spike: Lol, yes the kid is thirsty to hold onto the last few minutes of semi spotlight

  • kittyconrad

    Tempest in a teapot. Some swimmers and divers wore speedos this small decades ago.
