Sochi Olympics 2014: Team USA warned not to wear gear outside of venues for safety reasons

When the United States athletes travel to Sochi, Russia for the 2014 Winter Olympics, they will have had their fair share of warnings  about the dos and don’ts while they are overseas. As it turns out, the athletes for the United States have been warned about wearing Team USA gear outside of the Olympic venues for safety reasons.

From a report from the Wall Street Journal:

Let’s hope that no crazy violence breaks out simply because of country affiliation during the Winter Games, because that takes away from the spirit of the Olympics and what they are supposed to be about.

However, if there are any fashion police patrolling Sochi, those patchwork cardigans for the opening ceremony could land the USA athletes in even more trouble.
