The podium uniform for the Chinese sports delegation for the Tokyo Olympics was officially released in Beijing on June 25.

The designer, Timmy Yip Kam-tim, 53, is an artist from Hong Kong and well known internationally as a costume designer, visual artist, art director who won a "Best Art Design" Oscar award with the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

As an artist who was born in Hong Kong studied in Europe, and developed his artistic career in Taiwan before coming to Beijing, Yip's personal experience and diverse cultural background have given him a broader perspective to deliver a Chinese voice to the world.

It's Yip's second time contributing to the Olympic Games.

In 2004 he was costume designer for the Chinese performance group at the closing ceremony of the Athens Olympics.
