Of all the countries, I would say that Great Britain has done the best job of creating and marketing eyewear for the Olympics. Maybe it is because Great Britain’s flag is represented on so many other flags or because there are so many companies in Great Britain that manufacture eyewear or the fact they hosted the summer Olympics four times over the last 100+ Years. 1908, 1944, 1948 and the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
Did you know that Great Britain was one of 14 teams to compete in the first Games, the 1896 Summer Olympics in Athens, and is one of only three nations (France and Switzerland are the others) to have competed at every Summer and Winter Olympic Games. Athletes representing Great Britain have won 780 medals at the Summer Olympic Games, and another 22 at the Winter Olympic Games. Great Britain is the only team to have won at least one gold medal at every Summer Games. (Source Wikipedia)
