Why would someone want to change a lovely name like Lifshitz?

Some idiot on the Olympic committee oughta lose his position for okaying the uniforms for two reasons: they were made in China, and the Ralph Lauren logo, the polo pony, is right there on the front pocket. How come the commitee had to pay to advertise for Lauren? That's what the shirt/jacket logo amounts to - advertising.

Any idea where the competitors' athletic equipment was manufactured? Does any of that stuff have corporate logos on it?? I rest my case.
