In anticipation of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, the United States Olympic Committee is debuting an exclusive item: Team USA boxer briefs for men and briefs for women. Since sales of the briefs — which are proudly made in America — go towards helping support U.S. athletes, you’ll want to buy a few pairs!
And since we know that there is only so much underwear a person needs, we asked Team USA athletes — who just returned from competing at the Pan American Games in Toronto — to come up with a few other uses for the Team USA briefs. Oh, and buy your Team USA briefs today!
1) Use Them As A Swim Cap
Two-time Olympic slalom canoeist Casey Eichfeld doesn’t want to let go of the two gold medals he won at the Pan American Games — but he also doesn’t want to get his hair wet. Thanks to his Team USA briefs, his hair will stay dry even if the weight of his medals tips his canoe over.
2) Use Them When Potty Training Your Loved Ones
House training your dog is not easy. But it’s a whole lot easier than winning a gold medal at the Pan Ams — especially if you use your Team USA briefs like field hockey player Jackie Briggs does on her dog, London.
3) Use Them As A Slingshot
4) Use Them To Protect Your Sports Equipment
And the members of the women’s eight world championships team use them to pad their oars.
5) Use Them To Help Identify Your Bag
6) Use Them As A Flag
7) Wear Them As A Hat
