When it comes to Olympic uniforms, it’s hard to get more political than Germany’s or as wacky as the Norwegian curling team – but when it comes to downright cool, look no further than Mexico’s Olympic ski uniform. You’ve never seen a mariachi suit this tight before!
Rocking the styling spandex suit will be downhill skier Hubertus von Hohenlohe. If that name doesn’t sound too Spanish, it’s because von Hohenlohe was born in Mexico but is actually of German decent… and a prince. If you’re wondering why you’ve never heard of him, that’s because unless hell is as cold as Sochi this winter, he’s not getting close to a gold medal – the best he’s ever placed was 26th. Of course, that’s not going to stop us from rooting for this cool dude – especially since he’s also a pop singer, an accomplished photographer, and about to become the second-oldest winter Olympian ever at 55 years old. Go von Hohenlohe!
