Men (Manly Men!) In Tights

You may have heard of compression socks for plane rides, but the Olympic team took it to a whole 'nother level. In order to reduce the swelling that can occur during long flights, the players geared up with some Nike-issued compression pants. Combined with their USOC-issued Nike shorts, made of sweatpant material, the players were admittedly very comfortable during their long travels.

Here, Stu and Brad model the pants (and the overall outfit). The swimmers that were on our flight were wondering why our players were wearing their uniforms under our clothes...
