To celebrate 50 days to go until the Trinbago 2023 Commonwealth Youth Games, homegrown sports brand Valour has unveiled the uniform that Australian Team Members will don at the Games.
The uniform features a range of competition wear and training gear to be worn throughout the Games and includes more than 80 unique apparel items that will be worn by the team.
The ‘Unity’ symbol, designed by Gulumerridjin (Larrakia), Wardaman and KarraJarri Saltwater woman Jenna Lee, a legacy of the Gold Coast Games Reconciliation Action Plan that represents a team that is unified and ‘Greater Together’, also features across many of the uniform items.
Ryan Tesoriero, the Managing Director of Valour expressed pride in the partnership with Commonwealth Games Australia, as well as excitement over the design and aesthetics of the Trinbago 2023 uniform.
“The launch of this range and our partnership with the Commonwealth Games Australia Youth Team is an incredibly significant moment for us. It signifies a major milestone as we embark on an exhilarating journey to deliver top-of-the-line performance wear for our nation’s talented athletes who will represent us on the global stage,” Tesoriero said.
“Through showcasing our Australian owned manufacturing facilities and our highly experienced research and development team, we take great pride in witnessing our vision come to life.
With over 80 unique apparel items, we highlight our comprehensive skillset in compression, leisure wear, stretch fabrics, and the latest advancements in textile performance. Each garment is meticulously crafted to ensure optimal performance for its purpose.
We have poured our hearts into the creation of each piece in this range, guaranteeing optimal comfort, functionality, and style. It is an absolute privilege for us to support these young athletes as they pursue their dreams and make a lasting impact in their respective sports.”
This appointment marks Valour’s first collaboration with an Australian Commonwealth Games Team and sees them provide a comprehensive collection of apparel consisting of over 5,000 items and a complete range of team accessories.
The Opening Ceremony in Trinidad will mark the commencement of seven days of competition at Trinbago 2023 on 4 August 2023, just 50 days from now.
The Australian team will be led by Paralympic champion Ellie Cole OAM with support from Birmingham 2022 representative Greg Hire. It will feature 74 athletes across the seven participating sports of athletics, beach volleyball, cycling, FAST5 netball, swimming, rugby 7s, and triathlon.
