U.S. Olympic Team Opening Ceremony Outfits Revealed (Photos)

With the 2012 London Olympics just around the corner, everyone involved with Team USA is busy putting the final touches on whatever they’ve been assigned to do.

On Tuesday morning, the good folks at Ralph Lauren unveiled what those representing America at the 2012 Games would be wearing at the Opening Ceremony.

"It's a privilege to play a part in the London Games and to celebrate the achievements of these premier athletes as they represent our nation on the world's biggest stage," David Lauren, Ralph Lauren's V.P. of Advertising, Marketing and Corporate Communications said in a statement.

If these outfits look familiar, it’s probably because they're basically identical to what USA athletes were adorned in last time. For comparison’s sake, here is what the athletes sported back in 2008 (via Yahoo! Sports):

"Ralph Lauren truly understands the honor bestowed upon Team USA athletes who will represent all Americans at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games," Lisa Baird, the USOC’s Chief Marketing Officer, said. "We're very excited about the look Ralph Lauren has developed for Team USA to wear at the London 2012 Opening Ceremony and believe it will help set the tone for Team USA at the Games."
