99 days out from the Tokyo 2020 games, countries are starting to release their official kit for athletes.

Canada has just released their casual look for the streets of Tokyo – with a modern take on the country’s unofficial uniform, the Canadian tuxedo.

Olympic Features reporter Tracey Holmes says, throughout history you can look at Olympic uniforms and know “exactly where that country was what was happening in that country at that moment, and it told you everything about the personality and the culture of the place”.
