Check Out The Cool Branded Products Team USA (And Canada) Got at the Olympics
At this past Summer Olympics, Team USA athletes showed off some of the branded bounty they received from sponsors like Nike and Ralph Lauren.
With the Winter Olympics in Beijing right around the corner, athletes are once again showing off some of the cool freebies they received at the Olympic Village.
Right off the bat, one of the most noteworthy products is the "Beijing 2022" bedspread that athletes slept on in their rooms. Additionally, snowboarder Maddie Mastro showcased a branded pillow that unzips to become a blanket, complete with this year's Winter Olympics mascot Bing Dwen Dwen, an adorable panda, adorning the front.

Lost in all the hubbub over the Lululemon Team Canada fits are these gems. Nothing screams "Canadian Winter" quite like *string mittens* at *$68 a pair*.
