In a rare move, the USA summer Olympics uniforms were previewed in advance Monday night at the US Olympic Trials in Eugene.

The Nike uniforms were modeled between events at Monday's competition, worn by Track and Field athletes who had already qualified in Eugene for the Olympic team.

Among those proudly sporting the uniforms was newly crowned 800 meter champion Nick Symmonds, who only hours earlier had told an NBC interviewer he'd dreamed of putting on the USA uniform for the past two years.
