RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Staff and volunteers at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics will be unmissable at venues thanks to their colorful uniforms unveiled on Thursday.
The outfits are in shades of green, blue, yellow, and red, which also indicate the function of its wearer.
Red is for medical services, blue for the technical officials (who will also receive a formal uniform), yellow for the operational team, and green for those who will interact directly with the public.
The colors ''transmit the energy of the Olympics, which is the energy we want to transmit to the world,'' said Carlos Nuzman, the head of the organizing committee.
The Olympics open on Aug. 5, followed by the Paralympics on Sept. 7.
