Hill and Barton (2005) showed that fighters in tae kwon do, boxing, and wrestling who wore red jerseys during the 2004 Olympic Games won more often than those wearing blue jerseys. Regarding these results, this study investigated the effects of jersey color during a combat situation on fighters' physical parameters of strength and heart rate. An artificial, experimental combat situation was created in which the color of sport attire was assigned randomly. Fourteen pairs of male athletes matched…

Foot insoles might have influenced comfort perception and joint kinetics, but not joint kinematics, and the use of red color in foot insoles could potentially maximize the effectiveness of foot insole in a way that alterscomfort perception and motor control during landing, with implications for injury.
Competitive Cycling and Doping: Proposing a Functional Analysis Based on the Color Yellow.

Sporting contests: Seeing red? Putting sportswear in context (reply)
E10 The shirt colour worn by sportsmen can affect the behaviour of the competitors 1,2 , but Hill and Barton 3 show that it may also influence the outcome of contests. By analysing the results of
No effect of blue on winning contests in judo
It is argued that there is no colour effect on winning in judo, and alternative factors, namely allocation biases, asymmetries in prior experience and differences in recovery time are possible confounding factors in the analysis.
Red is a distractor for men in competition
When the Referee Sees Red …
It is believed that it is the referees who are the actual cause of the advantage competitors have when they wear red, because the effect of red clothing on performance and on the decisions of referees may well have been confounded in the original data.
Sporting contests: Seeing red? Putting sportswear in context
Another data set from the 2004 Olympics is used to show that similar winning biases occur in contests in which neither contestant wears red, indicating that a different mechanism may be responsible for these effects.
Better to Be Red than Blue in Virtual Competition
The performance of red and blue teams in a popular multiplayer first-person-shooter computer game suggests that joining the red team may offer a slight advantage over the blue team in virtual competition, and this should be accounted for when designing FPS games.
