While not a fashion statement by any means, Tony Parker's goggles, and the reason he's wearing them, are sure to get plenty of attention when France hits the hardwood.

The gold around his neck wasn't the only bling Ryan Lochte sported after winning the 400 IM on Saturday. While the IOC denied his attempt to wear a patriotic grill, he managed to flash his trademark sparkling smile in victory.

The Czechs showed up for the Opening Ceremony with form and function in mind. Ready for the London rainy season, Czech athletes showed off some stylish blue boots and umbrellas to keep dry.

While the competition is just getting started in London, plenty of Olympic athletes have done their best to get noticed. Here are some of the standout accessories from the first weekend of the Games.
