New Zealand's Winter Olympic attire at the opening ceremony in Pyeongchang has been given a 'dishonourable mention' by an ESPN writer.
Led by Beau-James Wells, the 32-strong New Zealand team donned their usual black attire with a silver fern, but the ESPN report said they were a 'let down' - not knowing the country's history with black uniforms.
"New Zealand was one of several countries to go all-black, which at the Olympics just seems like a let-down," the report said. "This is one case where black does not go with everything."
Germany's uniform was also given a dishonourable mention.
"There isn't much room to go wrong in winter-wear, but Germany managed with the odd tan and green colour palette."
Countries praised for their efforts included, Nigeria, Bermuda, Japan, Canada, and Tonga - which saw Pita Taufatofua walk out shirtless and oiled-up in freezing conditions.
New Zealand first competed at the Olympic Games as its own country in 1920, with athletes decked out in black uniform featuring a silver fern
Prior to the 1920 games in Belgium, New Zealand and Australia athlete competed together in a combined Australasia team.
