The London Summer Olympic Games may be over on Sunday, but there will still be plenty to cheer about long after the Olympic flames expire—especially if you have the gear to commemorate its historic moments.
For athletes, there is no greater feeling than representing their countries on sports’ grandest stage while carrying the colors of pride and patriotism. But you don’t need to be the fastest man or women on the planet to sport the same embellishments.
“Sports fans are always looking for ways to express their team support and this passion is largely manifested in their attire,” says Jamie Davis, president of Fanatics.com, a leading online retailer of officially licensed sports merchandise.
Whether you’re watching following the Games at home or striding through Olympic Stadium, we’ve got you covered with this roundup of inspired gear to make you feel like an Olympian on and off the podium.
