2022 Winter Olympic Games Uniform

In partnership with Sportscraft and Volley, Australia's Winter Olympic formal uniforms for 2022 are exceptional. The uniform's unique part is featured inside the coat, highlighting the names of all 265 Australian Winter Olympians, from our first Winter competitor Kenneth Kennedy in 1936 to Olympic champions like Alisa Camplin, Torah Bright, and Steven Bradbury.

The uniform incorporates a tapered chino pant in an emerald hue along with a grey marle crew neck knit for the males and a turtleneck knit for the female athletes. The uniform is finished with the official wool scarf, necktie, and belt. Volley helped design a limited-edition version of their Overgrip boot, with an embossed Australian Olympic Team logo and iconic herringbone-patterned sole. The 2022 Winter Olympic Games uniform is stunning, with an authentic Australian touch, bringing the athletes together throughout the games.
