Worst-Dressed at Sochi: Taiwan's Olympic Team?
冬奥会最糟着装“殊荣”或归中华台北队

Taiwan's Winter Olympics team has set tongues wagging even though it is unlikely to bring home any medals from the Sochi Games.

The talk isn't of medals. It is of outfits, the very blue ones worn at Friday's opening ceremony, with some observers verging on labeling Taiwan the worst-dressed team at the Olympics.

'From a distance, we assumed they had just gotten back from choir practice. These floor-length coats are neither practical nor attractive, unless of course you're planning on doing some house painting or joining a cult for the winter,' Greg Wyshyniski wrote on Yahoo Sports.

The Great Lakes Prep blog also drew that choir comparison. 'I didn't realize they'd added a choir competition to the event slate,' it said.

Gabe Zaldivar of the Bleacher Report gave Taiwan a 'C+' for its wardrobe selection and suggested the designers let the 'audacious blue color scheme breathe a little more.'

Chen Kuo-yi, secretary general of the Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee, said the opinions would be taken into account, Taiwan's Central News Agency reported. 'Views on fashion designs vary from person to person,' CNA quoted him as saying.

It added that the uniform was sponsored by Mizuno, a Japanese sports equipment and clothing brand. An executive from the company said the blue color was representative of Taiwan, and that the wind-resistant overcoats were highly functional, according to CNA. Citing Mr. Chen, it added that the TOC was grateful the company was providing sponsorship.

Three athletes from Taiwan are competing in Sochi: Sung Ching-yang in speed skating, Mackenzie Blackburn in short track, and Lien Te-an in luge.

虽然很有可能在索契冬奥会上空手而归,但台湾派出的中华台北代表团已经引发各方的议论。

大家讨论的并非奖牌,而是着装问题。在上周五的冬奥会开幕仪式上,中华台北队员们穿了一身蓝色长外套,一些观察人士几乎要将其评为本届冬奥会上最糟糕的着装。

Greg Wyshyniski在《雅虎运动》(Yahoo Sports)上写道:“远看我还以为他们刚参加完唱诗班练习,长到拖地的大衣既不实用也缺乏吸引力,除非你打算穿这套衣服来粉刷房子,或者是准备在冬天参加某个异教团体。”

博客网站Great Lakes Prep也使用了上述唱诗班的比喻。该网站称:“我还以为本届冬奥会要添上一个唱诗班竞赛项目呢。”

Bleacher Report的Gabe Zaldivar给中华台北代表队着装的打分是“C+”。他建议设计师让这一大胆的蓝色主题更加自由开放一些。

据台湾中央通讯社报道,中华台北奥委会秘书长陈国仪(Chen Kuo-yi)表示,对于批评的声音,中华台北奥委会表示尊重,并称服装设计的观点见仁见智。

据报道,这套蓝色大衣是由日本运动装备及服饰品牌美津浓(Mizuno)赞助的。该公司的一位高管表示,这款防风大衣功能性强,样式也符合台湾代表团的颜色。报道还援引陈国仪的话称,厂商愿意赞助,中华台北奥委会已经很感谢了。

中华台北代表团共派出3名选手参加此次冬奥会。其中,宋青阳参加竞速滑冰男子项目,吕明龙(Mackenzie Blackburn)参加短道竞速滑冰男子项目,连德安参加男子单人无舵雪橇项目。
