Puma has decided to go straight to the source when choosing a designer for the official Jamaican Olympic team's uniforms. The sportswear company has tapped fashion designer Cedella Marley, the daughter of Jamaican reggae icon Bob Marley, to design the Olympic track and field team’s uniforms, as well as podium and ceremony wear for the London 2012 Olympic Games. How cool is that?!!

The designs will be worn by both male and female participants, including three-time Jamaican Olympic gold medalist and fastest man in the world, Puma athlete Usain Bolt. “I can’t think of a better person to design our Olympic outfits than Cedella,”  Bolt said. “Puma got that right…hooking up with a legendary Jamaican. She’s a great designer but also carries on the spirit of our nation through the legacy of the Marley family. It’s going to be inspirational to run in London with that energy surrounding me.” Puma’s Olympic wear will be also include a complete lifestyle collection of apparel for when the athletes are off the field as well.
