The Olympics may be over, but the Olympic flame never really goes out. Get a jump on Tokyo and keep the Olympic spirit alive by wearing a pair of these sporty—and patriotic—glasses. Be an athlete or just look like one; either way you’ll be medal-worthy.

The beach volleyball court was the place to be in Rio, which is where Spain's Elsa Baquerizo was spotted wearing these match-winning frames from Under Armour.

Ryan Lochte might not want to call any more attention to himself by wearing these, but Under Armour also sent eyewear to Rio in team colors for the athletes, including their new multi-sport style UA Rival ($139.99) in USA red, white and blue.



Incorporating the colors of the German flag, and sporting the Olympic rings on the temple, Woodone’s cool special-edition collectibles were distributed to all German athletes upon their return from Rio. Maybe you’ll find them on eBay?



Costa’s USA Limited Edition Collection features seven frames in various red, white and blue color combos. Ranging in price from $149 to $249, models Blackfin and Anaa are shown here. And every pair of Costa sunglasses is assembled by hand in Florida, making them extra patriotic



Seen on athletes like beach volleyball bronze medalists Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross, Oakley’s limited edition Rio 2016 collection features both performance and lifestyle. Shown here is the Team USA Jawbreaker, equipped with Oakley Prizm lenses, a technology that allows wearers to see details earlier, faster and deeper, and the Team USA Frogskins, for the couch athlete looking for protection from too much high-definition Bob Costas.



Bring the spirit of the Rio games back-to-school and work in Nomad model Rio. ($179) Its vibrant temple color and design will remind you of Carnival and late nights spent samba dancing or, more likely, waiting for the tape-delayed women’s gymnastics to come on.
