What did you think of the outfits? 

The opening ceremony of the Olympics is one of the biggest spectacles in the world of sport.  It is also a great chance for countries to show off.  A lot of effort is put into the outfit  the athletes wear on the night.  So how did they do this year?  The Italians were predictably smart in their Armani suits.  Germany chose sky blue for the men and pink for the ladies – cute but not the most imaginative choice.   Kyrgyzstan won the prize for the strangest hats and the Czech Republic for the most practical outfit with matching wellies and umbrellas.  Too bad for them, it didn’t rain.
