The first kit, supplied on Monday, was made for 11 to 13-year-olds and most of the athletes could not even get it over their heads. Vikki McPherson, who runs in the 10,000 metres, said: "I would have had to have put eye- slits in my crop-top if I was going to wear it, and even then it would have been rather embarrassing."
Brendan Foster's clothing company supplied the team with a replacement kit.
England scored double gold with Denise Lewis in the heptathlon and 37- year-old Bob Weir, who was a surprise winner of the discus 16 years after winning the hammer. England's shooters took their medal tally to five golds.
