Team Canada's Uniforms Were Red-Hot For Olympics 2016 Opening Ceremony

Oh, Canada!

The Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games have officially arrived, and Team Canada strutted through the opening ceremony in style.

Donning uniforms designed by Canadian twin designers Dean and Dan Caton of DSquared2 at this year's Rio Summer Games, Canada's athletes marched in red, white and black during the parade of nations on Friday night at the Maracanã Stadium.

Wearing stylish and athletic shapes that were crafted around Canada's most distinct motif, the maple leaf, the Canadian contingent cut a sharp figure in the sea of competing countries during the parade of athletes.

The large white maple leaf on the back of the blazer allowed the Canucks to stand out amongst the 207 nations walking.

The rest of the Canadian uniform consisted of black athletic pants and white undershirts that had Canada written across the chest.
