Red China Basketball Jersey and White USA Basketball Jerseys (2008 Summer Olympics Gifts – Day 3)

August 10th, 2008 · No Comments · US Olympic Shop, USA Olympics

For the last few weeks, we’ve been highlighting great Olympics souvenirs where proceeds go to support the athletes of the US Olympic Team.

For the next 14 days, we’ll highlight one new product each evening from the US Olympic Shop.

On Sunday evening Beijing time (Sunday morning US time), Team USA and the Chinese National Team faced off in what they’re calling the most-watched basketball game in history, watched by over 500,000 people.

It was a surprisingly competitive game in the beginning. The team from China, playing with an enthusiastic home field crowd, sharp three-point shooting, and the hopes of 1.3 billion people on their shoulders, put up a valiant fight, keeping the score close well into the second quarter. But then Team USA kicked it up a notch and put the game away.

You can recreate the event yourself by getting replicas of the jerseys that were worn in the game. For the China team, you can get a red Yi Jianlian jersey with yellow trim with the word CHINA written in block lettersicon. For the US team, you can get the Kobe Bryant Olympics jerseyicon and Lebron James Olympics jerseyicon which are white with blue trim, as worn in the game.
