Kenyan Marathon Uniform


When marathon world champion Abel Kirui toes the starting line on Sunday, he’ll be wearing this, the Kenyan marathon uniform designed by Nike.

The latest in Nike Considered eco-friendly engineering, the Kenya singlet is created entirely from recycled fabric, derived from the equivalent of three plastic bottles.

The Kenyan national colors are added to the singlet using a water-free dye process, cutting down on the average 100-150 liters of water that is typically used to process just 1 kilogram of textile material.

The innovative waterless dyeing, which utilizes recycled carbon dioxide, also produces 50-60% less carbon emissions than typical methods.

All Nike-sponsored track & field teams at the Olympics wear uniforms using the above processes.

On his feet, Kirui will wear the Nike Flyknit Racer.
