Yeah, it's been a disaster.

Bibs are not required, so get rid of 'em. When the bibs are so big that it's obscuring the name of the country, it's a problem.

Also, what's the point of needing bibs in track & field? Swimmers and divers don't wear bibs. Gymnasts don't wear bibs. Basketball players don't wear bibs. If you need to be able to identify athletes, just require them to have country name and individual name (and even an ID number if you really need it) on their clothing, just like in team sports.

Giant and loosely-pinned bibs just look so stupid on sleek athletes. I betcha that if you removed bibs, more people would be happier than not.

love this tweet

"The irregular fonts on these Rio bibs are really starting to get to me. Genuinely concerned that they'll start using Comic Sans by the end."
