Cedella Marley, daughter of late musical icon Bob Marley, is putting her creative juices to use as the designer of the 2012 Olympic uniforms for the Jamaican team.

Marley, who is the creative mastermind behind the label Catch A Fire, teamed up with Puma to create the clothing collection that will be worn by Jamaican team competitors this summer in London.

“It’s not even a dream come true because it’s something I never dreamed would be possible. I ran track in high school in Jamaica and I’m still a huge fan of Jamaican athletics, so to have a role in creating the outfits for our Olympians is a thrill,” Marley told Caribbean Media Vision.

The vibrant collection is a reflection of Jamaica’s history, style and culture, and Usain Bolt, aka the fastest man in the world, was on hand for the unveiling of the collection in London.
