South Korean Olympians to compete in mosquito-repellant uniforms

South Korean Olympians will compete in mosquito-repellent uniforms this year to ease concerns over the ongoing Zika virus outbreak in Brazil, Associated Press reports.  The uniforms, which will be worn during times when the athletes are not competing, are infused with mosquito repellent, and fully cover the arms and legs. In contrast, many other Olympic teams, including the United States, will be dressing for a tropical climate in shorts.
