Let the fashion policing begin on opening day of Tokyo Games

Let the fashion policing begin.

The Olympics in Tokyo open July 23, when the world’s athletes will march behind their flag-bearers. And when they do, the peanut gallery on what they’re wearing will be open, too.

Olympic gear makes for lively social media fodder, starting with the hours-long Parade of Nations. The year-long wait due to the pandemic has given enthusiasts extra time to ponder what they love or hate.

There’s the Czech Republic and its traditional indigo block-print design with matching fans, already the butt of some jokes. It follows the country’s loud umbrellas and neon-blue Wellington boots of 2012 in London, along with its “Beetlejuice” stripes in Rio in 2016.

Israel’s athletes have see-through nylon jackets with huge pockets, while Emporio Armani decked out Italy’s team in track suits with a reinterpretation of Japan’s rising sun in the colors of the Italian flag: red, green and white. Liberia

USWNT loses to Sweden, 3-0, with goals by Stina Blackstenius and Lina Hurtig

The U.S. women’s soccer team opened the Olympics in disastrous fashion, losing 3-0 to longtime rival Sweden. It was the program’s worst defeat at a major tournament since 2007, and manager Vlatko Andonovski’s first loss since taking the helm in October 2019.

For all the talk of the U.S. being the tournament’s heavy favorite, Sweden was on the front foot from the start and rarely let up. They outshot the Americans by 16-13 in the game, including by 10-3 in the first half. An American team loaded with past medals but also the oldest squad in this tournament looked the latter part more than the former.

“Of course, that is not something we expected. We don’t expect to lose to begin with, especially not 3-0,” Andonovski told reporters in Tokyo. “There are some things we didn’t do well

Royal Mail has seen early signs that domestic parcel volumes are re-basing at a higher level than pre-pandemic as consumers continue to be gripped by an online shopping frenzy. 

Parcel volumes have swelled by more than a third in comparison with pre-Covid levels, in the three months to June 2021. 

The logistics and express services group GLS – which owns Royal Mail – saw its total revenue lift by 36.6 per cent on levels seen in 2019.

While Royal Mail’s revenue alone grew by 13.4 per cent on figures posted before the pandemic.

“We are starting to see evidence that the domestic parcel market is re-basing to a higher level than pre-pandemic, as consumers continue to shop online,” GLS group chair Keith Williams said.

Parcel volumes took a tumble when the UK first went into lockdown and all non-essential retail was closed and people were
