That Caribbean designer flair at the Olympics

Jamaican team representatives

At Caribbean Intelligence, we've been enjoying the designer flair of the Caribbean Olympic teams.

Although pared down, the Olympics opening ceremony on 23 July allowed nations from around the world to showcase their designer talent ahead of their athletic prowess over the next two weeks.

Let us know your thoughts on the athletes' outfits. We might share a few online!
