So many countries sporting combinations of red, white & blue. According to custom & tradition, white signifies ‘purity & innocence’; red, ‘hardiness & valor’ while blue signifies ‘vigilance, perseverance & justice’. It’s interesting to try to interpret which countries morally & ethically embody the traditional meanings of those colors.

Many perhaps still very confused Taiwan’s athletes since 2016 dress as “Chinese Taipei”. Yet, the uniforms do sport tiny, little “triangle designs, symbolic of the 100 peaks of Taiwan, giving a blessing for all the athletes to be on top and achieve great results.”

Looks like China has scrapped their 2016 ‘tomatoes & eggs’ schema to now embrace a theme of red over white.

Yes. Coconut oil is part of his ‘team uniform’ @Pukey2 9:08am. While it is high in fat, he was not.

“Did that [partially] naked Tongan guy make another appearance covered in coconut oil?”

Btw: its part of his training regime:

*- “Coconut oil contains natural saturated fats that increase HDL (good) cholesterol levels in your body. They may also help turn LDL (bad) cholesterol into a less harmful form. By increasing HDL, many experts believe that coconut oil may boost heart health compared with many other fats.” -*

Let us remember that in ancient Greece the Athletes competed naked.

I think we should go back to the source.
