American athletes will walk into the Maracana stadium for the Olympic opening ceremony next week following the light on their flag bearer's jacket.
The uniforms by Polo Ralph Lauren revealed on "Today" Friday morning show an illuminated "USA" on the back of the flag bearer's jacket. The flag bearer will be announced sometime before the Aug. 5 ceremony.
Athletes will wear navy blazers that feature the USOC logo and the designer's famous polo pony. Underneath, they'll sport a red, white and blue T-shirt with broad horizontal stripes above white jeans.
Fencer Mariel Zagunis was chosen to carry the flag at the 2012 London Olympics, while runner Lopez Lomong led the Americans in to the stadium in Beijing in 2008.
